Insurance companies deny hurricane damage claims all the time, but that doesn’t mean their decision was right. When a claim is denied, the insurer provides a reason, such as:
- You did not include enough information to support the claim.
- The policy does not cover the damage.
- The policy has lapsed.
Many insurance companies take advantage of people affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters, paying out far less than – or none of – what a policyholder is owed. If your hurricane insurance claim was denied or you were only paid part of what’s covered, contacting a lawyer is important.
