Denied Sinkhole Claim?

Maybe you noticed cracking around the outside of your home. Or maybe you noticed that you were having trouble closing doors in your home. What did you do? Well, usually you would promptly report the claim to your homeowner’s insurer for suspected sinkhole damage. The carrier then sent out their engineers to do testing. The engineers did testing, and then said that there was no sinkhole activity detected. The insurance company then denied the claim. The problem is, upon further review, the engineers’ testing actually proved that there was sinkhole activity!

This is a scenario that public insurance adjusters come across time and again. Denied sinkhole claims are both frustrating and potentially dangerous. But what can you do now? This happens all the time. Routinely, the insurance company’s engineering reports are the strongest proof there is to determine if there is indeed sinkhole activity. An experienced public adjuster can assist you in reopening your claim and make sure all of the damage is fixed and the sinkhole repaired.
