If you live in South Florida, there’s a chance that some type of natural disaster, whether it be a hurricane or mold damage after a tropical storm, will cause you to need to make an insurance claim. Many home or business owners are surprised when they file a claim that they’re not covered like they thought. That’s where risk analysis for insurance claims in West Palm Beach comes in. But what is it exactly, and why do you need it?
What is risk analysis?
Risk analysis, as it sounds, is an analysis of your risk as a homeowner. During a risk analysis consultation, a public adjuster helps identify any areas your home or business might be at risk. The risk could be due to a fire, hurricane, or other natural disaster. Risk identification determines what steps need to be taken to mitigate those risks, so you don’t lose money in the event that an unavoidable disaster occurs.
Why do you need risk analysis for insurance claims in West Palm Beach?
You actually need risk analysis BEFORE any disastrous event that would require an insurance claim occurs. Once risks are identified, you can make necessary repairs and/or upgrades your home or business needs for better protection. That may include installing items such as hurricane windows or sprinklers.
Then, you can review your insurance policy to make sure that you’re properly covered should you have to file claims. Some of the areas you may need to improve your insurance coverage include water, wind, or fire damage, and more. This consultation can also help you identify any shortfalls in finances, so you can lower your deductible if needed.
