CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) — With many homes and vehicles damage during Hurricane Irma people will begin filing insurance claims for some time to come.

Unfortunately, insurance companies will refuse to pay many of those claims, but experts advise not to rush through the process.

“Really it’s best for people to take their time and work through it, make sure they understand all of the damage, and go through a negotiation that may have some back and forth involved a few times. It will result in a much better settlement for the policy holder,” said Dan Karr, insurance expert, Valchoice.

Experts also advise doing your research before you file a claim.
