How to Protect Your Rights After Snowstorm Property Damage
“If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience. “ — George Bernard Shaw
The big winter snowstorm hitting the East Coast today and this weekend reminded us to share this excellent list of things disaster victims often times need to do to protect themselves re property damage and insurance claims. This list was put together after Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina and thus the George Bernard Shaw quote.
Please understand that we do not handle snow damage claims and don’t have a dog in the fight. In fact, we’re located in Southern California. Having said that, what we do want to make sure is that consumers are not taken advantage of by big insurance companies like they were during the Hurricane Sandy and Katrina disasters.
We also ask that you carefully review the resources previously provided at the link below. Although originally published to help protect Hurricane Sandy victims, many of the same issues apply to filing insurance claims due to snow and high water surge damage.
