Why Hail Property Damage Insurance Claims Get Denied or Underpaid

What are common reasons why insurers deny or underpay hail and wind roof and other property damage insurance claims?

There are several common reasons why insurers may deny or underpay hail and wind insurance claims:

  1. Damage not meeting the deductible: Many insurance policies have a deductible that must be met before the insurance company will pay for any damages. If the cost of the repairs is less than the deductible, the insurance company will not pay out the claim.
  2. Pre-existing damage: Insurance companies may deny claims for damage that was present on the roof before the storm. Policyholders need to have a clear understanding of the condition of their roof prior to filing a claim.
  3. Failure to maintain the roof: Insurance companies may also deny claims if the policyholder has not properly maintained the condition of the roof. This could include failing to repair leaks, applying coatings, keeping the system clean, or replacing damaged shingles.
  4. Age of the roof: Insurance policies may have restrictions on coverage for older roofs. If the roof is past a certain age, your policy may only pay for a partial replacement or Actual Cash Value, rather than a full replacement.
  5. Dispute over the cause of the damage: Insurance companies may dispute the cause of the damage, especially if there are other factors at play, such as poor installation, manufacturer’s defect, or inadequate ventilation.
  6. Incomplete or inadequate documentation: Insurers require detailed documentation of the damage, including photographs and repair estimates, to support the claim. Failure to provide sufficient documentation can result in a denial or underpayment of the claim.

It is important for Policyholders to review their insurance policies carefully and to work with an experienced public adjuster to ensure that they understand policy terms, conditions, benefits, and exclusions.

ICRS was very helpful to our condo association in connection with our recent property damage claim settlement. We are not insurance pros, but when some aspects of the insurer’s settlement offer did not appear to match up with our asessment of damage, ICRS helped us understand what further claims of damage were realistic and helped us achieve success on those claims.

My wife and I were looking for a public adjuster to help us navigate the murky water of a water damage claim. So we Googled and found ICRS with so many good reviews. We scheduled the free 30-minute call right away, not knowing that our residential claim was out of their work scope. However, Misty called us on time and was so helpful. She pointed out valuable resources regarding our rights and suggested great tips on dealing with the insurance adjuster (e.g., specific questions we should ask and documenting everything). Moreover, she offered that we can contact her again in a couple of weeks if our situation does not get better. Through our conversations, we felt that Misty was sincerely willing to help us out even though we were not her client. What we got from the free 30-minute call session was beyond our expectations, and they were really helpful.

Words can’t describe how grateful we are for the consultation and claim evaluation we had with Scott. Full disclosure we were unable to work with him due to limitations of our scope. We wanted to properly recognize Scott for the honest and genuine passion he put in to not only our claim, but the way he runs his business in general. We hadn’t had such clarity of next steps since this began in 2020. I would highly recommend this business to everyone spinning their wheels in this process!

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

A public adjuster is a licensed insurance professional who specializes in helping policyholders navigate the complex process of filing and negotiating property damage insurance claims. Public adjusters represent the policyholder’s interests, not the insurance company’s, and work to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim. Their duties include evaluating the damage, reviewing the insurance policy, preparing a detailed claim, and negotiating with the insurance company on behalf of the policyholder.
You should consider hiring a public adjuster if you are facing a large or complex property damage insurance claim, such as those resulting from fire, water, or storm damage. Public adjusters are particularly helpful when the scope of the damages is unclear, the insurance company’s offer seems insufficient, or there are disputes about the cause or extent of the damage. Hiring a public adjuster early in the claims process can help ensure that your claim is properly documented, and your interests are well-represented throughout the process.
Public adjusters typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they successfully recover a settlement for you. Their fee is usually a percentage of the total settlement amount, which is agreed upon in advance. This percentage can vary depending on the complexity of the claim and the location, but it usually ranges from 5% to 15% of the total settlement.
Insurance company adjusters are employed by the insurance company and work to protect the company’s interests. Their primary goal is to evaluate the claim and determine the amount the insurance company is liable to pay, which may not always align with the policyholder’s best interests. On the other hand, public adjusters are independent professionals who work exclusively on behalf of the policyholder. Their primary goal is to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim.
While insurance agents and brokers can provide valuable guidance and assistance in filing an insurance claim, they may not have the specialized expertise required to manage complex property damage claims. Public adjusters have extensive experience in assessing damages, interpreting insurance policies, and negotiating with insurance companies, which makes them better equipped to handle large or complicated claims. Hiring a public adjuster can be especially beneficial if you are not satisfied with the settlement offer from your insurance company or if you are facing disputes regarding the cause or extent of the damage.
