Florida’s insurers struggle to process claims created by Hurricane Irma.

Five months after Hurricane Irma moved across Florida, only half of the claims submitted to the state’s insurers have been paid. As of February 9, a total of 900,228 residential, business, and commercial claims had been filed, according to statistics from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation. Of that amount, 479,637 received payouts, 293,229 were closed without a settlement, and 127,362 remained under review.

The sheer scope of the destruction is perhaps the largest reason that so many Floridians still await a settlement, as the enormous number of claims has strained the resources of the state’s adjuster community. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation estimates insured losses from the hurricane at nearly $8 billion, making it one of the most expensive natural disasters in U. S. history. As a result, claim payouts in the Sunshine State have been delayed.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that unpaid claims typically result from damages below the policy’s hurricane deductibles. Experts in the state note, however, that there simply might not be enough qualified adjusters to assess the hundreds of thousands of claims filed across the country’s third most populated state. Homeowners and business owners wishing to obtain a fair settlement will benefit from hiring an experienced public adjuster to negotiate on their behalf with insurers.

In conclusion, the data gathered by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation shows that about ⅓ of all claims for Hurricane Irma are denied by the insurance company. If this has happened to you, if you claim was denied, please call us as we can help you and make sure you receive a fair settlement.

Florida’s Best Public Adjusters ARE the best. Our adjuster came to the house a few times to scope out the damage from a water leak and he spent quite a bit of time measuring the affected areas. The resulting claim amount was amazing. If we had handled the insurance company ourselves we would have come up way short. We highly recommend and trust Florida’s Best. Thanks Julian!

Stephen got my denial reversed….had all to do with his reputation, and not the “luck of the Irish” on this St. Patrick's day! Him and his team are very professional, responsive and caring during the entire ordeal. If they are not on your team, you have chosen poorly.
