You pay insurance premiums to protect your property in case something bad happens. The problem is, you may not be as protected as you think you are, because there are plenty of ways for an insurance company like Hartford to deny a claim. If you experienced a denied Hartford property claim, you need a lawyer that will fight for your best interests.
Unfortunately, there are many reasons why your claim could be denied. It’s incredibly frustrating when you get a denial.
Here are some of the most common reasons why your claim may be denied:
While there may be other reasons why the insurance company didn’t cover your claim, the above are the most common ones.
Depending on your insurance policy, you may be covered for a variety of repair and other costs that will help you return to enjoying your normal life. Your insurance company will usually insure for repair costs, cleanup costs, and potentially even costs associated with relocation.
Hartford insurance policies commonly cover repair costs. Your plan will potentially cover not only damage to your home, but also to any ancillary structures such as your shed, separate garage, or other stand-alone structures on your property.
In some cases, an insurance company may also cover cleanup costs associated with the property damage, including removal of debris and cutting and removing damaged or fallen trees. Your policy may also cover the costs of replanting landscaping elements such as trees.
If you need to relocate because of the damage to your home, some insurance policies will cover the costs of a hotel, food, and groceries while you are temporarily relocated as the home repairs are completed.
Lastly, your personal property may be covered if it is damaged or lost during the incident in question. This property includes clothing, furniture, and even books.
The process for appeals starts with a careful look at your case, starting with your insurance policy.
