As we head into hurricane season with our fingers crossed and eyes open wide, the devastation of Hurricane Michael still lingers in our minds as one of the worst storms of the decade in Florida. Millions of people filed claims with their insurance companies, yet, it’s amazing to some that Pensacola and many other residents in the Panhandle are still waiting for their insurance money to repair the damages to their homes and businesses. If you think your insurance company is playing fair–think again. Last year, Hurricane Michael slammed the East Coast and the Gulf. This catastrophic Category 5 hurricane’s 160 mph winds caused billions of dollars’ worth in damages as it continued on its destructive path up the East Coast. Although thankfully, Hurricane Michael did not grip Pensacola as heavily as most of its neighbors in the Florida Panhandle, the city still endured plenty of damage from the storm’s gusty rains and high winds.

What Do I Do if My Claim Has Been Denied?
What if on top of everything else you’re dealing with, like trying to put the pieces of your life back together, you find out that your claim has been denied? You pay your premiums on time, and your policy clearly states that you are covered –then why would your claim be denied? A mistake—right? Not necessarily. There could be several reasons your claim was denied. Perhaps you didn’t actually you’re your premium, or maybe you waited too long to file your claim. And maybe there is something in the policy that excluded your particular claim. Mold, for instance is not covered on most regular policies (but there are ways to get around that).
