Supreme Recovery Homeowner’s Suffering After Tornado Losses

Following a tornado homeowners will begin the arduous tasks of collecting belongings and taking inventory of their lost property. This process often requires an endless amount of forms and paperwork. While the recovery process after a tornado is not easy, it’s certainly true that a homeowner’s insurance company shouldn’t unnecessarily complicate the process. What is clear is that a majority of homeowners beginning the tornado claims process have an expectation that their insurance company is there to help them, however, sometimes that is very far from reality. An insurance company is a business that survives by protecting their bottom dollar and insulating themselves from paying out for losses, and as a result, sometimes they deny and underpay legitimate claims.

Cutting Corners to Keep Profits

When a tornado hits an area it causes destruction to a large geographic region, and, as a result, the insurance company assumes preemptively that a large payout will be required. Thus, an insurance company wants to write as little checks as is possible to avoid losing money on claims. In fact, an insurance company will often hire trained legal teams and extremely trained adjusters that are tasked with limiting and lowballing how much they are willing to pay on a particular claim. Insurance companies often hope that homeowners are not aware of their legal rights when it comes down to the claims process. Insurance teams will attempt to pay as little as possible and not deal with a homeowner’s claim in a thorough, non-rushed, timely, and complete manner while attempting to hide the true extent of damages from their insured.

Condominium Homeowner’s Claims Face Scrutiny Too

After a tornado devastates an area, individual condo units also may face devastating scrutiny with regards to their policy coverage as different types of condo losses may be covered under some policies retained by unit owners, condominium associations, and other property owners, and, as a result, it can sometimes become complicated sorting through coverage issues. The complicated issues that afflict condominium owners arise because there are an abundant amount of claims being processed arising from the same storm on the same property, but from different parties. As a result, insurance companies will often rush to settle, deny, or underpay claims in the worst case scenario.
