California Home Insurance – Knowledge and Coverage – The Keys to Success

In 2007 wildfires raged across the state of California and as a result over 40,000 insurance claims were submitted at the time by homeowners to receive compensation for the loss or damage to their homes. Now over two years later reports state that 99% of these claims have been successfully repaid and homeowners have received compensation for their losses. With these reports don’t state, however, are that there are still people in some areas that have been hit extremely hard by the wildfires that have not even receive permits to rebuild their homes as of yet.

In Rancho Bernardo, an area San Diego that suffered the heaviest losses from the Witch Creek Fire that burned through California in 2007, reports have been made that at least 70 residents who have submitted insurance claims are still not allowed to rebuild at all while homeowners in other areas have received full compensation and building rights. So what’s the difference between these two groups ? Many people who have already received a claims payout have openly admitted that they have had help from friends who know how to navigate different insurance systems and the construction industry to their advantage.

For California residents and homeowners in general this situation helps highlight important things:

  1. Maintain full home coverage or are you will receive nothing at all in the event of an emergency, and
  2. Arm yourself with knowledge as well as coverage plans to make sure that in the event of something happening you are able to use your coverage effectively and receive the help you need when you need it.

While it is always nice to assume the insurance companies and other organizations always have our best interests at heart the fact is that in many cases companies simply cannot handle all requests in timely manner or process things to your advantage. Keeping informed of what is going on in your area and what offerings are available to you through online insurance aids can help make sure that you are up to speed on the latest information and can receive the assistance you need when you need it rather than having to wait years to see results like many of these residents have had to do.
