In an article published September 12, 2017 in South Florida’s Daily Business Review, Hunton & Williams insurance lawyers Walter Andrews and Andrea DeField explained why it is critical that policyholders act fast to maximize insurance recovery for their hurricane-related losses. They also provided a checklist to guide policyholders through the claim process. As Andrews and DeField explain, in addition to providing prompt notice to all potential insurers, policyholders should collect all loss-related receipts and document the damage with photographs. Good organization of post-loss expenses will help expedite any claim for Extra Expense loss, while photographs will help to avoid disputes over the extent of any physical damage after that damage has been disturbed or repaired.
