Tips To Obtain Full Coverage Following Hail Damage
Many insurance companies take advantage of policyholders who don’t understand how to assess their losses. After your carrier evaluates your property, it may be helpful to get a few unbiased parties to take a look at the damage as well. Protect yourself by keeping careful records.
Essential tips to back up your hail damage claim:
Start Your Claim
Let your insurance company know that hail has damaged your home or other property. Get a claim number so that you can take the first steps in the insurance process.
Inspect the House
The insurance company will inspect the house for damage. Make sure everything is documented, so you are not charged with repairs later on in life.
Get a Second Opinion
Attempt to obtain an unbiased opinion on your property’s damage from a contractor or other expert. Their estimate may help you gauge if your claim is being undervalued.
List Your Damages
Don’t rely on your memory of what is broken, make a list! Keep a thorough record of everything that is damaged or compromised after the hail storm.
Keep Repair Records
Keep meticulous records of all the money you spend on repairs and related services, temporary and permanent. Take notes on conversations with your adjuster.
Photograph the damaged areas. All documentation of damage can significantly help your case, should you decide to file a claim against your insurance company.

What Type Of Damage Can Hail Cause?
Hailstorms can cause significant, widespread damage to buildings and vehicles. Depending on the size of the hail and the duration of the storm, your roof could be severely damaged. The windshield and roof of your car may be dented, cracked, or shattered. Livestock has even been killed by large hailstones.
If your home, business, or property were affected by a hailstorm, make sure you take note of all the damage.

Do I Need A Lawyer To Help With My Hail Damage Claim?
When you’re dealing with significant hail damage, you could be facing thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in repairs. If your insurance company is ethical and responsible, they will investigate your claim quickly and will pay for everything it takes to restore your property to its former condition. Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are nearly nonexistent. Your insurance provider is far more likely to delay your claim and to try to avoid paying for certain repairs.
With so much at stake, you can level the playing field by putting a competent hail damage claim lawyer in your corner. A lawyer who knows the ins and outs of property damage claims and the tactics used by insurance providers to limit payouts can make all the difference.
