Hail Claim Damage Disputes
Homeowners’ Hail Claim Damage Disputes
Property owners who have taken out homeowners’ insurance policies to protect their home or residence reasonably expect to be protected in the event of an unexpected hailstorm. Unfortunately, policyholders suffering from hail damage often face difficulties recovering what they are entitled to under their policy.
Recovering From Hail Damage
Not only can hail cause obvious damage to the physical structure of your residence, it can also cause lasting damage to roofing granules/shingles and aluminum siding. This can reduce the overall lifespan of your property, requiring extensive repairs or even replacement. In many instances, insurance companies will claim it should pay for only a few repairs to be made—even when entire parts of the roof or siding need to be replaced.
After a disaster such as a hailstorm, insurers will often attempt to deny, dispute, or delay valid claims for property damage. Insurers may point to any number of excuses for refusing to pay out on a homeowners’ policy, including:
Arguing that pre-existing damage existed
Claiming that poor construction or maintenance of the property contributed to the loss
Undervaluing the loss or damage to your residence
Insisting that the damage only requires minor repairs and not replacement
Refusing to pay for expenses related to repairs or debris removal
If you have experienced any of these actions by your insurer, you may need an attorney who can help you stand up to your insurer and get the compensation you deserve on your hail damage claim.
