How do I get what I'm entitled to from my Wind Damage Insurance Claim? Adjusters International assists with preparing, negotiating and Filing Wind Damage Claims after your property has suffered windstorm, hurricane, or tornado damage.
Windstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes can create massive destruction. When wind damage occurs, it can open the door to complicated ambiguities with insurance coverage during the adjustment process. In the aftermath of a disaster, many priorities come to mind:
Many homeowners and business owners do not collect all the money they are entitled to simply because they don't know the ins and outs of the insurance claim process. Wind damage insurance claims can be a hassle whether the damage to your property is large or small. Important things to remember about windstorm losses:
A public adjuster will work exclusively for you, the policyholder, and not the insurance company in negotiating and filing a wind damage insurance claim. Whether or not you choose to enlist the help of a public adjuster, it is your responsibility as the homeowner to document and prove your wind damage claim to your insurance agency. If your property has suffered windstorm, hurricane, or tornado damage, contact Adjusters International for assistance with your insurance claim.
High winds are known to cause damage, depending upon their strength. Infrequent wind gusts can cause poorly designed suspension bridges to sway. When wind gusts are at a similar frequency to the swaying of the bridge, the bridge can be destroyed more easily, such as what occurred with the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. Wind speeds as low as 23 knots (43 km/h) can lead to power outages due to tree branches disrupting the flow of energy through power lines. Hurricane-force winds cause substantial damage to mobile homes, and begin to structurally damage homes with foundations. Winds of this strength due to downsloped winds off terrain have been known to shatter windows and sandblast paint from cars. Once winds exceed 135 knots (250 km/h), homes completely collapse, and significant damage is done to larger buildings. Total destruction to man-made structures occurs when winds reach 175 knots (324 km/h). The Saffir-Simpson scale and Enhanced Fujita scale were designed to help estimate wind speed from the damage caused by high winds related to tropical cyclones and tornadoes, and vice versa. Wikipedia
