I  f your house was damaged or destroyed by the actions of the polar vortex, a wildfire, unintentional fire, windstorm, flood, hurricane or earthquake, as a result If the state declared disasters and you had a fire, homeowner, flood insurance, tenant homeowner or condominium policy, you will have to deal with an insurance adjuster to get compensation for your losses. You should realize that it is quite easy to deal with an insurance adjuster in a disaster. The adjuster and insurer are under pressure from local, state and federal governments to quickly resolve the many claims arising from the disaster.
Insurers dealing with a disaster will usually be in a very generous mood. They will seek good publicity by caring for the victims of the disaster quickly and fairly. In order to make the damage process easy, the insured must understand that both the insured and the adjuster have information when damage caused by fire, windstorm, flood or other insured hazards is discovered. , the insured. You and the adjuster should meet in person. If the requirement is to be resolved quickly and fairly, both you and the adjuster should work to establish a personal relationship and solve, if there is coverage, the problems caused by the damage to the home or business structure.
You are entitled to have the damaged property replaced with "similar kind and quality." This means that you should insist that the amount determined to be the amount of the loss is sufficient to replace the property with property of the same type and quality to the damaged property. When you cannot match the remaining undamaged tiles, wallpaper, carpets or other parts of undamaged property, you usually have the right to have the entire "field of view" match. For example, if a broken water pipe destroys the wooden floor in a kitchen and does not damage the adjacent wooden floor in the adjacent family room, the insurer is obliged to replace both the damaged and undamaged floors so that they match as long as they are in a continuous field of view.
