Polar Vortex Disrupts Businesses and Damages Homes
Over the past month, sub-zero temperatures have resulted in major damage to many homes, businesses, and organizations across the nation. From burst pipes and water damage, to roof collapse, to disruptions to business operations and supply chains, the Polar Vortex caused potentially billions of dollars in property and economic damages. Those who have suffered damages are now taking a look at their insurance policies to see if their losses are covered.
It is your responsibility as the policyholder to make sure that the insurance company has all the information and evidence to support the extent of your loss. Depending on the terms of your insurance policy, you may be eligible to file a claim under some or all of the following coverage provisions:
- Property Damage (Buildings, contents, etc.)
- Business Interruption and Extra Expense, directly resulting from the property damage
- Business Interruption, caused by property damage at customers’ and/or suppliers’ locations.
As the recovery efforts begin, many homeowners and business owners are faced with the daunting and time-consuming insurance claims process. If you have never filed a property damage or business income claim, or if you are not familiar with the insurance claims process, you may miss important details when filing your claim.
