Can I still file a Hurricane Ian damage claim?

You can still file a Hurricane Ian property damage claim, but your deadline is approaching fast. The deadline to file a Hurricane Ian property damage claim is September 28, 2024.  

This does not mean you start speaking to an attorney the day or week before the deadline. Ideally, you want to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Getting your claim filed as early as possible helps increase your chances at getting a high payout.

Why would someone have a late Hurricane Ian claim submission? 

If your roof sustained wind uplift damage, then months may go by without any visible signs of damage. 

Wind uplift damage occurs when powerful winds lift sections of your roof, and then those sections fall back when the wind force stops or decreases. This results in broken seals that would normally block water. These openings now allow water to get into your home causing water damage. One of the first signs of wind uplift damage is seeing water stains on your ceiling.

Get your home inspected if Hurricane Ian impacted your neighborhood.

The deadline to file a Hurricane Ian property damage claim is September 28, 2024.  The process of filing a hurricane claim, especially an Ian claim this late, can be challenging. It’s still possible, but your insurance company may be hesitant to cover your damage this late.  They will likely wonder why it took you this long to file.
