Don’t Wait to File a Business Income Claim

There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on businesses. Many businesses have either chosen or been forced to close based on the executive order of the Governor. If your business is closed due to COVID-19 or impacted in a negative way, we encourage you to file a claim with your insurance company. Norcia Insurance Consultants is here to assist you in completing the process and compiling your claim.

Whether your business has general insurance or business interruption protection, we can help you understand your coverage. Business interruption, or loss of income insurance, protects business revenue according to the type of coverage and coverage limits the business owner chooses. Compensation calculations can be complicated and difficult to understand, so we recommend businesses get started on the claims process as quickly as possible.

Here are the steps you will need to follow to recover from lost revenue during this unprecedented time:

Review Policy Terms

We will do a thorough review of your policy and compare what it covers against what you lost or expect to lose. We will also check to see if the policy has a time-based deductible called an elimination period.

Notify Insurer

You should notify your insurance company as soon as possible after incurring a loss. Most companies require notification within a specific time period followed by a sworn proof of loss statement, or they will invalidate your subsequent claim.

Loss Mitigation Plan

Problems with loss of business income claims often arise from providing an unrealistic or inaccurate recovery period. Insurance companies expect (and most often require) you to submit a mitigation plan that includes a time frame for recovery and outlines steps you are taking to keep losses from escalating.

Claim Form
You will need to gather financial and legal documentation and fill out the claim form according to the insurance company instructions. Claim forms also require calculations that determine lost profit and extra expenses.We have more detailed information on how to file your business income claim, but the main thing to do is get started now! Give us a call and we will help you through the process to make sure your business can recover from lost revenue and hopefully get back up and running as soon as things get back to normal.

Burst Pipes

Discovering a burst pipe in your home can be a scary experience. Your insurance company should understand that you need to move fast when handling a burst pipe insurance claim. After you’ve spoken with your insurance company, a water damage remediation company should arrive on-site quickly to tackle the problem.

A burst pipe can quickly cause thousands of dollars in water damage. Making matters worse, some insurance companies will refuse to cover certain burst pipe damages. If you need help figuring out coverage for your exact situation with water damage from a leak, broken pipe, or a pipe that burst, a licensed public insurance adjusters like those at Norcia Insurance Consultants can evaluate your policy and claim to provide industry expertise for your unique insurance claim.

Roof Damage

Roof damage insurance claims can be tricky. Some roof damage is always covered by a home insurance policy, while other roof damage is not. Most home insurance policies cover unexpected roof damage like hail damage, fallen debris and the like. If your roof was damaged in a storm, then your home insurance should cover the cost of repairing your roof to its pre-loss condition.

In many cases, the insurance company will dispute certain aspects of your insurance claim. In this case, should hire a public adjuster to answer any of your insurance claims questions and handle your insurance claim to ensure you receive the maximum amount you are entitled to in order to fix your roof.

Fire

After a damaging fire, you’ll want to make a list of everything you lost in the fire. Insurance policies require policyholders to file their insurance claims and ‘proof of loss’ reports as soon as possible, so call your insurance agent immediately to get the process started. Dealing with the insurance company is a very convoluted process, especially when it comes to fire damage so it is important you have someone fighting on your behalf and answering any and all of your insurance claims questions. An insurance claims adjuster here at Norcia can help you every step of the way.

Whatever damage occurs to your home, it is important to remember that only a licensed public adjuster can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, fighting for every penny owed to you under the terms of your contract.

First of all, it is important to know that not all natural disasters are covered by homeowners insurance. For example, damage caused by earthquakes and floods are not typically covered by homeowners insurance. You may need to purchase separate insurance policies to help protect your home and belongings against those types of natural disasters. You may also need to purchase additional coverages for greater protection. While a typical policy comes with certain coverages, it is usually customized to meet each individual homeowner’s unique needs. There are a few basics covered by most insurance plans including windstorms, hail, fires, lightning strikes and more. Insurance plans are not one size fits all so your plan may only include some of these or even additional events. Our insurance consultants can help you determine what is covered and what is not. A public insurance adjuster like us can come to your home, talk to your insurance company for you, explain to you what is unfolding, clarify all aspects of the paperwork and go over contracts that you might otherwise have a hard time understanding.

And, some homeowners insurance policies also include coverage for other structures that are on your property but separate from your home, like a detached garage, tool shed or fence.

When heavy rains, wind or a falling tree limbs wreak havoc, your first step is to make sure everyone is safe and your home is safe to be in. Do not go outside if it is still storming out or if it’s possible tree limbs could still break and fall, even if you suspect your home or property has been damaged. Wait until the weather clears up and it is safe to venture outdoors. As soon as it’s safe to do so, go outside and slowly walk around the perimeter of your home. Take note of any damage you see, even if it’s only a small amount. Then, you should pick up the phone and call the experts at Norcia Insurance Consultants. We will be able to walk you through every step in the process. Even if you are unsure whether the damage warrants an insurance claim, experts like those at Norcia can get you the help you need to get you started. Even if a claim is fairly minor, like a cracked or broken window that won’t exceed your annual deductible, you should still report that damage.

You don’t even need to contact your insurance company to file insurance claims directly. With assistance from the experts at Norcia, we can take care of this for you. We can come to your home, talk to your insurance company for you, explain to you what is unfolding, clarify all aspects of the paperwork and go over contracts to help you understand them.
