This answer can be very involved. Most simply, you should attempt to get your insurance adjuster and the repairer to agree on the cost of repairs. Insurance companies issue 'supplement' payment on claims regularly.

Most homeowners insurance policies cover repairs caused by storm damage, however you will have to check your policy to be certain. Usually, you will have a fixed amount of time to claim damages.

Perpetual insurance is most commonly used for homeowners insurance but can also be used for fire insurance. The most frequent conditions are that the insurer must make enough money to cover the losses in the event of a claim.

No. Unless the foundation problem happened because of an earthquake or flood (and you have insurance to cover both catastrophic events), then your insurance will not cover something that has degenerated with time.

So long as you can establish the loss occurred during the term of the prior insurance policy, yes they will cover the claim.

Repairs are maintenance and homeowners insurance is not intended to cover maintenance of your home. This is up to you to maintain your home. Insurance is made to cover sudden and accidental damage of a major cause such as fire, windstorm, lightening, and like causes.

Yes it would but if it were due to the landlords negligence his liability insurance would cover the loss. Your insurance co will chase the claim against his for you. Place a claim with them.

Yes, if your policy has adequate coverage. If you have full coverage insurance, your car will be repaired completely and your portion of the repairs will be whatever your deductible is.

User Avatar

Let your insurance company/agent handle the claim--they will collect from the other insurance if there is a valid claim. You'll need a police report.

User Avatar

No. But if you have proof positive that the mechanic caused the damage, HIS insurance will cover the repairs. Call your local office of the State Attorney General.

File the claim on your auto insurance. Homeowners insurance does not cover automobiles.

User Avatar

Yes, it will cover that minus your deductible,, However you should first check to see what your deductible is. Most mailboxes are pretty cheap and likely far below the cost of your policy deductible. No point in filing an insurance claim if the cost of repairs is below your deductible.

Under insurance is not carrying enough insurance to cover your assets in the even of a liability claim or not carrying enough insurance to satisfy your bank / lienholder. Over insurance is carrying more insurance than you need. This is more common with home insurance. For example, insuring a 1000 square foot house for 1,000,000, would be considered more insurance than you'd ever need.

As long as it is a covered expense by your secondary insurance and a claim has been filed with the primarty insurance then the answer is yes. The secondary insurance will only cover the expense according to your plan.

If the garage did the damage then they are held reliable for the repairs. Yes your insurance will cover it, but you may want to ask them how to keep it off your record and get them to fix it. I would recommend that you first talk to the shop and if they dont work with you then talk to a lawyer and see what they say.

Yes it should, but the auto insurance company may have to pay the medical insurance after the claim is paid.

Insurance is for those major emergencies. It is designed to help you pay for repairs you might not otherwise be able to afford. It is not designed for small problems that are simple to fix. Before filing any auto insurance claim, be sure to consider the actual cost of the claim and whether you can afford to cover it. When too many claims are filed the insurance company will raise rates to offset your expenses. Don't open yourself up for a rate hike by claiming a $100 repair. When it comes to auto insurance claims, you are usually better off tending to the small repairs on your own to keep the rates as low as possible.

They would not be covered under your policy, But due to implied permissive use rules you can be held negligently liable. So your auto insurance may provide a defense for you under a negligence claim against you.

Sue him.A bit more:If the person who hit you doesn't have enough insurance to cover the damages to your vehicle, then your insurance should cover the balance of the costs if you have full coverage and not just liability insurance.
