Do You Really Understand Your Insurance Policy? Here’s What You Are Probably Missing

Recorded On: 07/09/2020

Every insurance claim is underpaid, it's just a matter of by how much. The claims process is designed to be long, complicated and frustrating. By understanding tricky policy language, carrier tactics, consumer rights and having the right partners in place, policyholders can avoid many of the common pitfalls that often lead to unfair claim payouts. These small things can be the difference between $10,000 and $100,000, or even foreclosure vs. full building replacement. In some cases, a natural disaster might even be the best thing that could have happened to an old property if you have the right coverage and filing a claim may be more cost effective than capital expenditures.
