When people suffer property damage from hurricanes and other natural disasters, they typically need their insurance payouts right away to make repairs and move on with their lives. Unfortunately, however, these claims can be unnecessarily delayed or even wrongfully denied by reticent insurance companies, prompting lawsuits and adding significant time before a person can receive his or her payout. It is important to note, though, that if an insurance company settles with the claimant shortly after the lawsuit begins, a homeowner may receive compensation much faster than if the case goes to court.
