If you live up North in New York or New Jersey, then you know that just like fickle summer storms, winter storms can be even more unpredictable. You might experience Nor’easter-like conditions on a Tuesday and then 65- degree Spring-like weather on Thursday. The weather patterns in the Northeast, especially in New York and New Jersey, have become super inconsistent. With summertime just around the corner, you should make sure that your property is well-maintained and that your insurance policy is up-to-date. You don’t want to get caught unprepared for the possibility of a hurricane, tornado or as Dorothy can attest, a cyclone. The East Coast is still dealing with the remnants of flooding from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. But what should you do after a major summer or winter storm when you’ve suffered some damage to your property? Before you call the insurance company, call a public adjuster like United Claims Specialists. We have experienced public adjusters in New York and New Jersey that can help you get the maximum amount of money to repair any structural damage to your home from flooding and high winds.
Why Should I Call a Public Adjuster in New York or New Jersey After a Winter Storm?
If your home or business has suffered damages like flooding, roof damage or structural issues due to a major winter storm in New York or New Jersey, you should call a licensed public adjuster before you call your insurance company. At United Claims Specialists, we have an experienced team of adjusters who know how to stay ahead of the games that insurance companies often play to cheat you out of the money you deserve. It’s nothing personal–insurance companies will try to pay everyone as little as possible unless called on it, and that’s where we can help. You’ve worked hard for years to purchase your home and still believe in the American Dream. You need to protect your investment at all costs. That’s why you want someone on your side that has your best interests at heart. If you wish to file a claim, have any ongoing claim that’s taking too long or have been denied a claim, call United Claims Specialists. We can negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf to get you a fair settlement.
What Should I Avoid After I’ve Assessed My Damages from a Winter Storm?
Sometimes, in our haste to get things taken care of, we might act too fast and make the wrong decisions that can have lasting effects. It is only natural to want to call your insurance company when your home has suffered damage due to a winter storm. After all, they are on your side—aren’t they? Not always. In order to beat the insurance company at their own game or at least present the best-case scenario to win your claim, you’ll want to avoid the following:
-Working with a contractor who was not been highly recommended
-Attempting to repair any damage to your home by yourself
-Signing any paperwork without talking to an experienced public adjuster first
-Settling with your insurance company for less money than you deserve
When you hire United Claims Specialists, we’ll make sure to properly document your damages and negotiate your case with your insurance company, so you don’t have to. Our public adjusters also work with trusted contractors who will properly assess the damages to your home and estimate the repair costs.
