What’s The Re-open Claims Process?
Reopening claims is a process just like any other. You start with a visit to a public adjuster. From there, the visit will either take place in your business or home where they review all your documents such as the policy you had when the damaged took the place, the estimate your insurance gave you and all records of the repairs that were done. The public adjuster would then figure out if the claim can be reopened. If this were to happen, the public adjuster will then contact your insurance company and then they will have to re-inspect the damages.
Reasons for Denial
There are a few common reasons why your insurance claims can be denied, they are:
- Not filing on time. Many insurance companies require you to report the damages as soon as possible in accordance to the terms of the policy.
- Not enough information given of the said damages. It is very important to give accurate information for the damages that were done to your property. It is your responsibility to give this information to your insurance company.
- Exclusion clauses. It is also important to understand the exclusions in your insurance policy. Typical exclusions can include things such as: pool patio awnings or exterior paint.
- Mitigating the damage. As a policy holder, you are expected to protect your property after the damages. If you do not protect your property and more damage occurs, your claim can be denied.
