Why a good attorney is so important in handling an insurance claim.

Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters
Everything looked fine from the outside when Fran Adelson returned to her house the morning after Sandy hit in October 2012. Then she opened the front door.

“Everything was in a different place,” she said. “Why is that piece of furniture over here? Why was that—you couldn’t wrap your mind around it.”

Helpful Tips for Dealing With Your Insurance After the Storm:
We're seeing now that while cleanup is under way and repair work has started many people are still waiting to hear back from their insurers regarding payment of their claims or even, in some cases, getting the insurer to come out for the initial inspection. Here are some things to know about how the process should move, the required deadlines and how to get your insurance company to move on your claim:

1. INSURERS ARE BACKED UP AND SHORT-HANDED BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE STORMS BUT NO ONE SHOULD BE WAITING 30 DAYS TO SEE AN ADJUSTER. Make sure your claim report and proof of loss form are submitted to the insurance company. Once those are in the insurance company by law typically has a maximum of 90 days to pay the claim or they can be sued and be liable for interest and attorney’s fees on top of the claim if they are wrong,
2. BECAUSE AN INSURER CAN BE LIABLE FOR PENALTIES AND ATTORNEY’S FEES IF IT IS OVERDUE ON THE CLAIM AN ATTORNEY MAY SPEED THINGS ALONG. Most insurance attorneys will represent you without charging anything up front, but will work on a contingency where they get paid a percentage (usually 1/3) of your recovery and in many cases the attorney will not even charge you any percentage of your recovery if she is confident that she can recover he fees as a penalty from the insurance company if she wins.

In case you were wondering....The Collier County Solid Waste Department is telling us that the strong sulfur smell traveling throughout the county is originating from the county landfill off Collier Boulevard north of I-75. The increase in municipal solid waste resulting from Hurricane Irma and the recent rains have caused some odor in the landfill. Waste Management International has been covering the active landfill area with a mixture of dirt, mulch and shell in an effort to mitigate the odor, however, the current wind flow is transporting the odor to the southeastern Golden Gate Estates area and other areas of the county. WMI will add additional dirt mulch mix tomorrow to ensure the odor is contained. ...

Update from Collier CountyFEMA opened a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Collier County today to help local hurricane survivors. The DRC will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week until further notice.

Disaster Recovery Centers offer in-person support in most languages to individuals and small business owners. Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the state of Florida are available to provide assistance to anyone needing help with completing the applications or updating their status. Voluntary organizations are available and offer a variety of services to help survivors recover.

The DRC is located at:

Golden Gate Community Center (Collier County)
4701 Golden Gate Parkway
Naples, FL 34116

The registration process is the first step in your recovery and requires information such as insurance policies, and bank information for possible direct transfer of funds. You are encouraged to register online at DisasterAssistance.gov, through the FEMA Mobile App, or via phone through the Helpline below before visiting a DRC.

Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for voice, 711 and Video Relay Service (VRS). If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability and use a TTY, call 800-462-7585. Helpline numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Information on the registration process is available in ASL HERE.

Disaster Survivor Assistance (DSA) crews are canvassing affected areas and are able to register survivors for FEMA assistance, if needed. Telephonic Interpretation Services are available in many languages to assist survivors with language needs. When residents require further assistance, the teams may refer them to a DRC.

If you’re already registered, it is not necessary to visit a DRC, but you may still want to go speak with a Recovery Specialist to update your status or find help from the other organizations. Some tips to remember:
FEMA grants do not have to be repaid.
FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled
