New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
As the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy approaches, home and business owners who suffered flood damages should file the full and complete proof of loss for their claims, according to Daniel Odess, president, GloblalPro Recovery, Inc.
"All victims of this October 29-30 'superstorm' should check their local statutes of limitations regarding filing of insurance claims," said Odess, whose independent advocacy company helps owners maximize their insurance recoveries. "With the cooler autumn weather, building materials will cycle through their expansion and contraction phases, uncovering hidden damages caused by Sandy. Be sure to notify your carrier of these damages and file a supplemental claim."
Odess said flood victims face the most pressing insurance-related deadline, as the federal government requires proof of loss documentation to be submitted by April 28, 2014, according to FEMA's October 1, 2013 Bulletin W-13060 (http://www.nfipiservice.com/Stakeholder/pdf/bulletin/w-13060.pdf). "This means home and business owners must assess the damage and submit this information, along with a sworn statement, using the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) form."
In the past year, GlobalPro Recovery has handled more than 300 claims for businesses and residents in the New Jersey and New York area, and recently opened a New York office to better serve the MidAtlantic states that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, which caused an estimated loss of more than $68 billion.
