Not sure whether to file a claim for Hurricane Irma damage?

Many of us may decide not to file a claim for damages we suffered from Hurricane Irma. We might think that the damage will be under our hurricane deductible, so why bother? Here's something to consider: The ISO form for personal residential (homeowners, dwelling) states this:

We require that you promptly report any windstorm loss caused by a "hurricane occurrence" that is below the hurricane deductible so that we may consider the amount of such loss when adjusting claims for subsequent "hurricane occurrences" that occur during the calendar year."

In other words, if we have a second or third storm hit us, (See Hurricane Maria), damages from the subsequent storm(s) in the same calendar year will be added to the Hurricane Deductble possibly giving coverage for the subsequent damage. As always contact Cronin Insurance if you have any questions on your policy.
