Common sense vs Florida’s one-year insurance claim statute

A recent decision by Tallahassee lawmakers has imposed a one-year limit for property owners to file insurance claims after a covered loss, effective from January 1, 2023. This timeframe applies universally, not just to hurricane-related damages, necessitating swift assessment and claims initiation. This poses potential challenges, such as undetected roof and window damage, and highlights the impact of erratic weather patterns on property issues. Criticism is directed towards the shifting insurance laws, which have become less favorable to policyholders over time.

Insurance laws changed and are not in favor of policyholder

The aftermath of Hurricane Ian in Southwest Florida has highlighted the importance of having reliable insurance coverage, but recent changes in insurance laws have raised concerns among policyholders. After the hurricane, thousands of claims have still not been paid, and the insurance laws have shifted unfavorably for policyholders. The time frame for filing claims has been reduced to just one year from the hurricane's landfall date, which may not be sufficient for damage that takes time to become apparent, like roof damage. Additionally, changes in attorney fee allocation mean that homeowners who sue their insurance companies may have to cover attorney fees from their own settlement. This has prompted calls for a reevaluation of these changes to ensure a fair and homeowner-friendly insurance system.

Panelists to offer advice on navigating obstacles after a natural disaster

The Above Board Chamber of Florida is hosting a luncheon aiming to assist people in navigating the complexities of dealing with insurance companies, adjusters, and contractors after a natural disaster. The event emphasizes the importance of forming a team of trusted advisors to avoid scams during the recovery process. The meetings will take place in Fort Myers and Naples, featuring a panel of experts who will discuss topics such as the 50 percent rule, mold removal, understanding insurance policies, and ensuring structural integrity during the recovery process.

DAY Adjusting & Consulting Lends support to Golden PAWS Heroes Fund

Day Adjusting & Consulting donated $5,000 to Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs to assist Veterans, first responders, and their assistance dogs affected by Hurricane Ian through the Heroes Fund. Blake Day, the owner of Day Adjusting & Consulting, got involved due to the destructive impact of storms on communities and well-being. The Heroes Fund provides financial support for recipients and their dogs, covering nutritional and veterinary needs, as well as addressing life-altering emergencies. Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs is a non-profit organization that provides highly skilled service dogs to combat wounded Veterans, first responders, and children with disabilities.

Cape Coral homeowner claims Hurricane Ian insurance check bounced

Many homeowners in Southwest Florida are awaiting insurance checks from their insurance companies following Hurricane Ian, but delays and issues persist. One homeowner in Cape Coral, Christine Girard, received a check that bounced, and after a series of challenges and excuses from American Integrity Insurance of Florida, she finally received a new check. However, Girard remains skeptical about the company's reliability and worries about future claims.

Congratulations to the March 2023 Business of the Month

Ian Aftermath Even Harder to Fix With Supply Chain Tattered

The aftermath of Hurricane Ian, which caused massive destruction in Florida, is expected to be further complicated by supply chain issues that have persisted since the beginning of the pandemic. The hurricane caused significant damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure, with estimates ranging from $65 billion to $100 billion. However, labor shortages and supply chain difficulties are expected to hinder rebuilding efforts, making the recovery process even more challenging.

The aftermath of Hurricane Ian has showcased both acts of altruism and instances of exploitation. While many have rallied to aid their neighbors, opportunistic scammers have preyed on vulnerable individuals. In response, efforts to raise awareness about scams have been made, including town hall meetings and advocacy for consulting local professionals before committing to services. Public Adjusters play a crucial role in navigating insurance claims, but it's essential to verify their credentials beforehand. Licensed and bonded adjusters are regulated by the state and can significantly enhance claim payouts, as demonstrated by a government report. Policyholders are reminded of their right to seek professional representation to ensure fair treatment from insurance companies

Day Adjusting and Consulting aims to protect homeowners and property owners' interests by ensuring they receive the claims they deserve.

Florida’s government subsidises people living in hurricane zones

Florida's property insurance market was already struggling before Hurricane Ian made landfall near Fort Myers last September, and now six insurers have gone insolvent due to extreme weather, litigation costs and fraud. With insured losses from the storm expected to reach $57bn, the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance, which has the largest market share, has doubled its policies to about 13%. However, if it cannot cover losses, it can levy a surcharge on almost all other property- and casualty-insurance policyholders in the state, and some fear that the growing role of Citizens could undermine private players.

Tips for renewing commercial insurance policies

Southwest Florida has experienced changes in insurance policies and claims due to Hurricane Ian. Blake Day, president of Day Adjusting and Consulting, advises commercial property owners to understand the difference between RCV and ACV policies, be aware of their deductible types and amounts, have O&L coverage, consider appraisal provisions, and ensure that their insurance policy does not have a co-insurance penalty. These tips can help property owners properly insure their properties and avoid underinsurance penalties.
