Tornado Damage Claims in Florida
Tornados are a threat to homes and businesses throughout Florida. Tornados are natural disasters that can produce deadly wind speeds of up to 300 miles per hour. At these violent speeds, tornados can rip apart homes, commercial buildings, and automobiles.
Even sturdy homes can suffer from devastating damages when high winds strike. Insurance companies may try to provide the lowest compensation available after a storm destroys an individual’s property. It is imperative for home and business owners to reach out to a public adjuster for a fair damage assessment and estimate.
How to Assess Tornado Damage
Tornados are highly dangerous events, and it is important to keep everyone safe and wait until the storm has passed before assessing property damage. Do not attempt to assess the damage until after wind speeds have dissipated.
Signs of Tornado Damage Include:
- Roof or Chimney Damage
- Broken Windows
- Cracks in Stone
- Spaces between Door Frames
- Warped/Cracked Walls
- Slanted Floors
What to Do After Tornado Damage
It is important to protect your home or business after a tornado occurs. You will need to collect all of the evidence available to build a successful insurance claim.
- After the storm it is critical to be aware of any potential dangers. Look for downed power lines, glass, nails, and other potential hazards.
- Be sure to wear close-toed shoes, gloves, and any other personal protective equipment available.
- Take photo and/or video evidence of all damages. Be sure to get multiple angles and photos of all appliances, the interior, and the exterior of the home.
- Take photos of the area around the home and any other structural damage.
- Reach out to a public adjuster to schedule a free inspection and evaluation to determine the extent of the tornado damage.
- Use your public adjuster to file a claim with your insurance company. It is a wise idea to save all correspondence with the insurance company, emails, call logs, etc.
