The act of filing an insurance claim can give victims a feeling of closure. Compensation for a wrecked vehicle after a car accident, a life insurance payment after a loved one passes away—these things are often painful, but necessary for victims to process what happened and allow them to move on.
But for victims of natural disasters, filing a claim is often just the beginning.
You may have read news coverage of thousands of insurance claims being denied after Hurricane Katrina. These denials often came down to a disagreement in what caused the property damage. Many victims who submitted hurricane insurance claims were denied bases on the insurance company’s belief that flooding (which is not covered on most hurricane policies) caused the destruction.
Now, as hundreds of Americans are reeling from another major storm event, Hurricane Sandy which has been described as the worst storm in U.S. history. Victims are worried that similar denials will take place. Some will accept this initial denial, some be unable to read their policies for clarification, and others will not know how to prove how the damage was done—but all will be unable to repair and rebuild the damage the storm has caused.
