Hollywood Residents Likely to File Hurricane Damage Insurance Claims Based on Statistical Averages
September 10, 2012
The statistical likelihood that residents of Hollywood will file hurricane damage insurance claims is extremely high. The area is brushed by or hit by a hurricane an average of once every two years and direct hits occur on an average of once every five years.
Obviously, some years will be worse than others when it comes to hurricane damage, but it is unreasonable to assume that anyone could live for an extended period in Hollywood and never file insurance claims because of a hurricane or tropical storm.
Whether a property owner suffers a direct hit from a hurricane, sustains damage from the tornadoes that hurricanes can spawn, or experiences the destruction that can occur from the gusts that are generated even when a storm passes through nearby communities, the devastation can be extensive. The emotional trauma experienced by victims is usually overwhelming, but most Hollywood residents take consolation in the fact that physical property can be replaced once hurricane damage insurance claims are filed and reimbursement received. Some in Hollywood have been further victimized, however, when their hurricane damage insurance claims are denied or a ridiculously low settlement amount is offered.
