If you’ve had to file an insurance claim in Florida after damage occurs to your home, you may be like thousands of other homeowners in our state — the process was much more stressful than you initially thought it would be. Worse yet, at the end of the back and forth, it’s very possible that you haven’t received enough compensation to adequately repair the damage caused by the wind, water, fire, a burst pipe, vandalism or some other factor.
Once your insurance company sends you a check, you might think that the process is over and that you must deal with what you’ve been given. But that’s not necessarily the case. Although it can be difficult, it is possible to reopen an insurance claim if you feel you haven’t received the compensation you need and deserve.
You still have options
As a Florida resident, you have the right to have your non-sinkhole claim reevaluated as long as five years after you filed it. This may be the case even if you had a contractor repair your home, only to find out later that the total costs are more than what your insurer provided to you. In these situations, it’s important to fight for your right to be reimbursed for the difference.
After a claims process that was taxing enough, the thought of reopening your claim may make you cringe with dread. You may ask yourself if it’s worth the extra anxiety. In most cases, yes, it is — and the good news is that you don’t have to go at it alone.
Although it’s always best to have extra help with your Florida insurance claim from the beginning, a public adjuster can come in at any point in the process to help you seek the compensation you need from your insurance provider.
