Hurricane Ian Damage Attorneys
- The residence exterior needs to be from all four corners, the roof and any other structures or features of the property. Additional structures can include pools, storage sheds and fences.
- Interior pictures need wide shots to provide a full view of the entire room and all of the room’s contents. The insurance company will often argue that insurance claim damage is preexisting, so any contrary information is essential. Include the ceiling, floor and your personal property in the photo
- A video walk-around of your home and property is helpful. Record with your smartphone and you document the exterior of your home and be sure to show everything on your property. It would help if you did the same with the interior of your residence. Make a video record of anything like video game platforms, TVs, jewelry and anything that is valuable.
Keep a copy of your insurance policy handy.
- Have a copy of your homeowner’s insurance policy in an easy-to-access place if you need to file a homeowners insurance claim. Keep in mind that insurance companies will be pretty busy after the hurricane. It is always in your best interest to be among the first people to call customer service to file a claim.
During Hurricane Ian
Take photos and videos.
- As was the case before the hurricane, smartphone videos and photos are vital. You will want to note any damage as it occurs, but DO NOT put your life in danger. All exterior videos should be taken through a closed window to illustrate the scale of the storm.
After Hurricane Ian
Document all hurricane damage.
- Take the same pre and mid-hurricane photos and smartphone videos to demonstrate all hurricane damage during the storm. Be sure to take pictures of the surrounding area. Trees that are downed, fallen power lines and displaced possessions illustrate the magnitude of a hurricane and make the story real. Always be careful while documenting post-hurricane damage. Keep away from downed electric lines and other potential dangers.
- Look for downed power lines and other hidden dangers.
Get your home inspected.
- All homes and businesses should be carefully inspected for roof, siding, railings, and other exterior damage. Just because you don’t see the damage doesn’t mean it didn’t occur. Sometimes, the effects of a hurricane are subtle and come to light months or years after the storm.
