In the wake of the powerful Nor’Easter that brought gale force winds, snow and major flooding to New England this week, Diane Swerling sat down with Fox 25’s Ted Daniel to discuss what homeowners should do if their property has been damaged, including:
Report claims to insurance company as soon as possible;
Prevent further damage to your property where possible, and salvage what you can;
Note and photograph all damage and losses; and
If you need temporary housing, check your insurance policy for “loss of use” coverage – your policy may cover additional living expenses so that you maintain your standard of living up to a certain amount.
And if your property suffers storm damage, call us at Swerling Milton Winnick, the largest and oldest public insurance adjusters in New England. After large storms like these, it may be difficult to get insurers or remediation professionals to call you back. For immediate answer and assistance, make us your next call.
