Do I Have a Case?

If you purchase insurance to protect you during tornadoes and other natural disasters, you’re entitled to money for your losses.However, insurance companies can be overwhelmed with claims following a disaster and may try to settle your claim quickly and inexpensively.

Here are some reasons your tornado claim may be denied:

An insurance adjuster may consider most of your damage to be cleanup, which your policy may not cover.

Your policy may have exclusions that include your losses, leading the insurance company to deny your claim.

Your adjuster may claim that your estimated damaged property values are incorrect, leading to a lower compensation amount.

In some cases, your claim may be denied without any reason, leaving you even more confused and frustrated.

What To Do After a Tornado

Following the proper steps and filing your insurance claim after a natural disaster are important for maximizing your compensation. Here’s what you should do after a tornado:

  1. Contact your insurance company to report the disaster and start your claim. Don’t wait long!
  2. Document all the damage before cleaning or repairing anything. Take pictures and videos of the items and their location. Be sure to avoid putting yourself in a dangerous situation to minimize further damage, such as walking on a floor that may collapse.
  3. Don’t start cleaning or doing repairs until you speak with the insurance company. You have to wait for the adjuster and may need to get permission from the contractors you use.
  4. Be direct and firm with the insurance company. If you receive a lowball offer, contact our Disaster Insurance Claims team for help in seeking fair compensation for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions

The compensation you receive for your tornado damage is determined by your specific policy, the nature of the damage, and the value of the items that were damaged. Because of this, you should keep thorough records of the damage your property sustained and any receipts from original purchases, replacement purchases, or repair costs. When you work with us, our attorneys will dive into the details of your circumstances to determine the maximum compensation amount you are entitled to collect and will compile all the evidence necessary to back your claim up and ensure the best possible chance of success.

Insurance policies can be complex, especially with natural disasters. You may have limitations or exclusions that affect your compensation. Be sure to ask your insurance company about the specifics of your policy to ensure you get fair compensation. If you’re worried about your claim, contact our Mississippi tornado insurance claims lawyers to see what options are available to you.

The amount of time it will take you to get paid for your Mississippi tornado damage depends on how much damage your home or business sustained, the specifics of your policy, and how busy the insurance company is with other disaster claims. If you have to appeal a denial, you may wait longer for payment for your claim. It is in your best interest to hire a disaster insurance attorney to help you move things along quickly and efficiently so you can focus on getting your life back on track while your attorney ensures you seek the maximum compensation amount for your losses in a timely manner.

If you can no longer live in your home and need to find temporary housing, your insurance company may provide some of the money for living expenses. You may also receive funds for temporary repairs needed to make your home livable. However, you have to be very careful about who you use for repairs. Additionally, you’ll need to keep complete records of how much you spent to provide accurate information to the insurance company.

Insurance companies can become overwhelmed when a disaster strikes and affects many of their policyholders. Their goal is to get claims settled quickly and cheaply, so you can be left with a lowball offer that doesn’t cover your losses. If this happens, be sure to contact our insurance claims attorneys to find out about your options and get guidance on how to maximize your claim.
