Polar Vortex Disrupts and Damages Businesses and Homes

Over the past month, sub-zero temperatures in many areas of the United States have resulted in significant damage to homes, businesses, and organizations across the nation. From burst pipes and water damage, to roof collapses, to disruptions to business operations and supply chains, the Polar Vortex has caused potentially billions of dollars in property and economic damages. Those who have suffered damages are now taking a look at their property insurance policies to see if their losses are covered.

It is your responsibility as the policyholder to make sure that the insurance company is property presented with all of the information and evidence to support the extent of your losses, in a timely manner. Depending upon the terms of your insurance policy, you may be eligible to file a claim under some or all of the following coverage provisions:
  • Property Damage (Buildings, Contents, etc.)
  • Business Interruption and Extra Expense, directly resulting from the property damage.
  • Business Interruption caused by property damage at your customers' and/or your suppliers' locations.
As the recovery efforts begin, many home and business owners are faced with the daunting and time-consuming insurance claims process. If you have never filed a property damage or business income claim, or if you are not familiar with the insurance claims process, you may miss important details when filing your claim. Or, you may simply prefer to focus on rebuilding your life and business while knowledgeable professionals advocate on your behalf to be certain that you receive everything that you are entitled to recover under your policy. Having a public adjuster on your side can help to alleviate the burden of dealing with your insurance claim, and will help you secure a full, fair and expeditious settlement.
