Property Damage In Florida
From hurricanes, fire, hail, and broken pipes, to theft, sinkhole activity, lightning, earth vibration, vandalism, tornadoes, explosions, and many other causes of property damage, policyholders immediately turn to their insurance company for help after they suffer a loss.
If your property is damaged, promptly notify your insurer. Next, locate your insurance policy. If you cannot find it, contact your insurance agent or broker immediately. Insurance agents and brokers typically only provide their customers a copy of the declarations page and/or an abbreviated version of the policy at the time of purchase; so make sure to request a full and complete copy of the policy, the declarations page, and any endorsements to the policy. Your policy contains valuable information like who is/are the named insured(s), the names of any additional insureds, policy limits for each coverage, definitions of words and phrases used throughout the policy, the terms and conditions of the policy, the Loss Payment Provision, any endorsements that change coverage in your policy, and a list of exceptions, exclusions, and limitations to coverage.
It is common practice in the claims department of an insurance company to immediately obtain a copy of the insurance policy from their underwriting department as soon as they receive notification of a new claim. They review it in its entirety, including the exclusions and exceptions, prior to issuing their coverage decision.
