Houston Storm Victims: Follow These Steps to File Your Insurance Claim

Once again, Houston has been ravaged by severe storms and tornadoes. The May 16-17 derecho, packing hurricane-force winds, left a trail of destruction, widespread power outages, and heartbreaking loss of life. As residents grapple with the daunting task of rebuilding, it’s crucial to navigate the insurance claim process carefully to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.

If your property suffered damage, follow these steps to file your insurance claim:

  1. Contact Your Insurer Immediately Call your insurance company right away to start your claim. Provide your policy number and a description of the damage.
  2. Document the Damage Extensively Before making temporary repairs, thoroughly photograph and video all damage to structures and belongings. Create a detailed inventory.
  3. Make Necessary Temporary Repairs Make essential temporary repairs, like covering roof holes or boarding up windows, to prevent further damage. Save all receipts. Hold off on permanent repairs for now.
  4. Review Your Policy Coverage Read your policy to understand your coverage, including additional living expenses if your home is uninhabitable.
  5. Cooperate with the Insurance Adjuster Be present during the adjuster’s inspection to point out all damage. Their report will determine the settlement offer.
  6. Get Multiple Repair Estimates Obtain detailed quotes from licensed contractors and compare them to the adjuster’s report. Don’t hesitate to negotiate if the offer seems too low.
  7. Keep Detailed Records Maintain a log of all communication with your insurer, save copies of correspondence, and keep all paperwork organized.
