Once you have gotten to the other side of a Florida hurricane, you can breathe a sigh of relief and take inventory of your property and home. Unfortunately, coming across damage can bring the tension right back as you prepare for the next storm: dealing with a hurricane insurance claim.
When it comes to dealing with insurance companies, what people in Jacksonville may tend to dread most is the waiting game. They have to wait to learn if their expenses have been covered or denied, and then wait to hear about the results of any follow-up action that is required. The main reason behind their worry is they know that every day that passes without a resolution to their claim, the filing deadlines that their insurers pose creep closer. What they may not know is that insurers actually use this as a tactic to facilitate claim denials.
