Dealing with the Loss of a Home or Business After A Natural Disaster

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Last month, more than 1 million people were evacuated due to hurricanes. New Orleans, Houston, Galveston and a host of other cities were impacted. And for those who were unfortunate enough to lose their home or their business, their ordeal is just beginning. Not only are losses like these financially devastating, but uninformed consumers can actually make their situation much worse by trying to deal with their insurance company on their own. What most consumers don't know is that they can hire their own representation to help them through the process, and that this type of help can be surprisingly affordable.

This week on SpotLight, Jim and I interviewed Glenn Nahmias, a public adjuster with Metropolitan Adjustment Bureau.

This interview is a must for all homeowners. Whether you face the wrath of Mother Nature, a natural disaster such as hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, floods, -or have a house fire. Glenn talks to us about various insurance coverages you should consider (some I never heard of) for your financial safety, your rights when dealing with insurance companies, and how to make sure that you receive the best possible settlement from your insurer after such a loss. To learn more about scams directed at victims of a natural disaster see earlier blogs: Disasters & Identity Theft.
