High winds, down-pouring rains, and tornado watches aren’t totally uncommon in our parts and they can leave some devastating storm damage in their wake.

But how do you go about filing an insurance claim after a storm and what do you do if caught in insurance disputes? As the trusted professionals here to help with insurance disputes in Wisconsin, we are here to give you a quick rundown of what you should do after a damaging storm.

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.
