This article will give you a couple of ideas on five common problems that people run into when their insurance denies their roof claim, as well as what steps are taken by experts at law offices, or by yourself if you choose not to use one.
Problems You Face When Your Insurance Denied Your Roof Claim – How To Solve Them
The main problem that most people run into when their insurance company denies a property claim is the question of whether or not the claim is justified. This question can be very expensive to answer, and most people have no idea how to go about doing it. There are many different problems that you can face when your roof was denied, so we’ll focus on five of the most common ones.
A Guide to Insurance Denied Roof Claims
If you live in the United States and have recently had your home’s roof damaged by a storm, you may be wondering what to do next.
The first step is to make sure that you file an insurance claim with your homeowners insurance company. It is also a good idea to contact your agent or broker to find out if you have other coverage (i.e. flood coverage) that applies in this situation and can help pay for the cost of repairing or replacing your roof.
However, if your insurance company denies your claim, you may want to consider contacting an attorney who can represent you in a legal action against the insurance company. As part of that representation, the attorney can attempt to resolve any dispute between you and the insurance company through negotiation. If negotiations do not result in an agreement to pay for the damage to your home, your attorney may file a lawsuit against the insurance company on your behalf.
Before you decide to contact an attorney, you may want to consider talking with a claims adjuster from the insurance company. Your claims adjuster can explain what your insurance policy covers and what it does not. This may help you understand better why your claim was denied.
If you have been unable to reach an agreement with the insurance company by yourself, your attorney may negotiate directly with the insurance company. If successful, your attorney will be able to get the insurance company to pay for the damage to your home. In some cases, however, it can be more productive to file a lawsuit in court. That is because when a dispute goes into litigation in court, it is usually more public and there are rules that govern how both sides must act and by when they must act. In this way, it is possible for even a relatively inexperienced homeowner to form an understanding of what is going on and how the case is progressing.
Budget
This one seems obvious, but if you don’t have the money for your roof repair or replacement, then this is definitely not a problem. You may have to delay your project, but this is not something to be worried about. If you don’t have the resources to pay for repairs or replacements when they are needed, then you will immediately notice a difference in your home’s value.
Hiring An Attorney
This is probably the most common problem that people face when their insurance company denies their roof claim. It is kind of like being denied by your bank, but it can soon turn into a nightmare if you don’t have the money to pay for an attorney’s fees. Although hiring an attorney may be more expensive up front, it will save you a lot of time and money later on.
In order to hire an attorney, you will have to provide your attorney with a retainer. This is money held onto by your attorney in case you lose the case. If you win, then the retainer will be returned to you, but if you lose or walk away from the case then the retainer will be given over to your opponent as compensation for their time and services.
If You Have Insurance
The next problem that people run into when their insurance company denies their roof claim is that they have insurance. Often times this is just a formality, but it may mean that there are options available for you. For example, if your roof is more than 15 years old, then you may have an insurance rider that covers this. In fact, most insurance companies will cover roofs on houses that are up to 30 years old. If you have purchased a new home then the builder’s warranty may cover the roof under certain circumstances.
If You Do Not Have Insurance
Protection from damages and loss are one of the biggest reasons why people purchase insurance. However, not everyone has insurance, and many people fail to realize how important it is until they need it. The key word here is protection. Most of us buy home policies so that we are protected from natural disasters or accidents that occur at our homes or businesses. If you lose your roof or are injured in an accident, then you will need a roof repair and/or replacement. Not only will you get paid a lump sum for the amount of damage but many insurance companies will also give you a replacement value, which is usually much higher than the actual cost of replacing the roof.
These are just a few problems that you can encounter when receiving your insurance company’s denial letter, but there are even more serious issues that may prevent an insurance company from providing compensation for damages. For example, if the damage is caused by negligence or fraud then it may be an automatic rejection by your insurance carrier.
