LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Hurricane Florence leaves a trail of destruction as it gets deeper and deeper inland. The economic impact of Florence is hard to calculate, but it will surpass more than $30 billion, as estimated by disaster modeler Chuck Watson, from Enki Holdings, to Bloomberg. Compare-autoinsurance.org has released a new blog post that explains to drivers how to file a car insurance claim and get their money back after the hurricane.
In this special case, when a car is damaged by a hurricane, there are only 2 policies that will cover the costs:
Comprehensive car insurance: when the damage is caused by water (electronic components are destroyed, car parts are corroded or anything related), falling trees or debris, the car is transported by water and falls into a steep. Basically, anything related to natural elements wreaking havoc.
Collision car insurance: when the car starts hydroplaning and collides with another car or structure.
Steps to follow for filing a car insurance claim:
- Inform the auto insurance provider as soon as possible. Hurricane Florence is expected to last several more days. The number of cars affected by it will be huge. Be fast in order to have the claim solved sooner.
- Try to mitigate damage. If possible, try to reduce the damage caused by the hurricane. Once the storm passes, let the car dry in a safe place.
- Keep all car repair and inspection receipts. These receipts will be handed over and analyzed by the insurers. Based on these receipts they will evaluate the claim settlement.
- Cooperate with the claim adjuster. The insurance company will send one or more claim adjusters to check the car and get more info about the extent of the damage. Provide as much info as possible, including before and after photos of the car, if available.
"If your coverage includes hurricane scenarios, then you have nothing to worry about. But it is important, to be honest and provide as much info as possible to your insurance company", said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.
