Helping Your Business Prepare for Hurricane Season

This year’s hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, is predicted to be very active. For some good advice on how to prepare your business for both natural and man-made disasters, see FEMA’s “Every Business Should Have a Plan.” OSHA’s Hurricane Preparedness and Response site is another excellent resource for learning how to help your business and employees prepare for, respond to, and recover from catastrophic weather events. Preparing for the worst is not easy. But navigating the aftermath can be even more challenging. Hylant is here to help.

About the Webinar Series (click here for the agenda)

When is the worst time to discover your commercial property insurance doesn’t work the way you assumed it would? After a catastrophic event, whether it be a hurricane, tornado, fire or flood.

This webinar series will help you navigate catastrophic losses before and after they strike. The focus will be on understanding property coverages and planning before a loss, as well as dealing with a claim after a loss.

Caution After the Storm
When widespread damage occurs, insurance adjusters are under pressure to serve many clients all at once. Knowing this, “storm chasers,” people pretending to be adjusters, contractors, or restoration experts, move in quickly and begin knocking on doors. Be skeptical of anyone who shows up at your business who you haven’t contacted first.

  • Professional insurance adjusters will have identification. Ask for it. If someone claiming to be an adjuster doesn’t have ID, ask the person to leave your property immediately. If the adjuster does provide identification, call the insurance provider and verify that the adjuster is who he/she claims to be.
  • Contractors and roofers almost never can act as insurance adjusters. If a contractor, roofer or anyone else claims they are also adjusters, do not let them perform an inspection or do any work until you have verified with your insurance provider that they are who they claim to be and are authorized. Not doing so could result in your claim being delayed or denied.
  • Work only with qualified contractors and restoration companies.
