What to expect after filing a storm-related insurance claim

Catastrophic events create a claims surge, so it’s important to give your insurer time to respond before hiring your own adjuster, a contractor or even an attorney. Experts like Daryl Patrick, owner of the Tampa Bay Insurance Center, said homeowners with minor clams could be waiting weeks for an adjuster. “They are going to go to the most devastated homes first,” he said. “They'll send somebody out, but you may not see someone for a week or two.” Patrick advises doing what you can to minimize the damage and keeping all the receipts for any money you spent. He said to get estimates on what it will cost to fix the damage, and if the cost is less than your deductible, “don't file the claim.” https://wfts.tv/3rtGTBK
