Insurance Claims Ramp Up Following Texas Hail Storms

March 25, 2019 - 10:30 am

ALLEN (1080 KRLD) - It's a busy day today for insurance adjusters as people clean up and begin to repair the damage after yesterday's hail storms. 

Getting on the phone with your agent as soon as possible is the first step.

To help that go as smoothly, you also need to document every bit of damage, no matter how small it seems.

Some temporary repairs like tarping you can do yourself right away, but wait to start permanent repairs after talking to your agent.

Mark Hanna with the Insurance Council of Texas says when it comes to hiring for repair work, stay away from those so called storm chasers. 

Hanna says it's also important to keep an open line of communication with your insurance adjuster during the claims process.

And for those who may have escaped damage this time, make sure you're covered in the event of severe weather, and it's never a bad time to strike up a good relationship with your agent.
