Hurricane Ian was a swirling storm of surge water and high winds. Many counties expected it, while others thought they were safely out of the path of destruction.

Many items were hurt as a result of Hurricane Ian. Here are a few examples as a result of the storm:
- Destroyed and flooded homes;
- Water damaged businesses;
- Harm and death to various people;
- Harm and death to various pets.
Everything changed in the towns where Hurricane Ian pressed through.
If your clients were in the path of Hurricane Ian, they likely suffered property damages. Whether that was their home, or personal property, there is much to recover and pull back together after a natural disaster of this scale. Luckily, our team at CAMERON CLAIMS® is ready to help you navigate the ins and outs of the Alternative Dispute Process.
Our Team Is Ready To Help
Our team at CAMERON CLAIMS® is ready to help those involved in Hurricane Ian resolve their dispute with their Insurance Company. We are a dedicated team, serving large and small firms and their clients, Fortune 500 companies and small businesses, and individuals in need.
We want to help your clients achieve accurate and amicable resolutions for their insurance claims. To wit, we provide pre-suit services such as mediation, appraisal, arbitration, and litigation support such as loss consultancy, and expert testimony.
Let’s talk more about the four main services we offer. If your client was involved in the chaos of Hurricane Ian and has reached a dispute with their carrier, our services may be beneficial.
CAMERON CLAIMS® offers appraisal services to help you resolve first party property claim disputes. Appraisal is an alternative means of resolving factual issues disputed in first party property claims. A property claim dispute arises when a policyholder and their Insurance Company disagrees on the amount of loss and/or damages. Each party to the dispute chooses an appraiser, who is to independently set the amount of the loss. The appraisers choose an Umpire to rule between their differences in the event they are unable to agree on the amount of loss. The appraisal is concluded by virtue of an award form bearing two of the three panelist’ signatures. Generally, each party pays their own appraiser, and shares the costs of the Umpire equally.
We also offer mediation representation. Mediation gives you the opportunity to settle claim disputes with your insurance company by allowing you to meet with them in an informal setting (conference) with a certified, neutral mediator or (Sinkhole) Neutral Evaluator to assist in resolving your claim. Mediation is non-binding, which means none of the parties are required to accept the outcome. Residential property mediation allows you to settle disputes regarding all residential property claims resulting from damage to your house, dwelling, mobile home or condominium. Mediation is a pre-appraisal and pre-suit process that allows you to meet with your insurance company in an informal setting (conference) with a certified, neutral mediator to assist in resolving your claim. Mediation is non-binding. If a settlement is reached, you have three business days to rescind the agreement as long as you have not cashed the check and you inform the company of your decision.
According to the DFS, mediation may be requested only by the policyholder, or the insurer. The dispute must be a disagreement over what caused the damage or the cost of repair of the damage. Upon receipt of request for DFS mediation, the Department will notify the parties that they have 21 days to otherwise resolve the dispute. If the parties do not reach a resolution, then a mediator will be assigned to conduct the meeting. According to the DFS, all named policyholders/insured(s) listed must attend the conference, but they may be represented by someone who can assist in presenting the claim to the mediator, who is paid by the insurance company. It’s stressful to deal with an insurance claim, then experience resistance from an adverse party. Our mediation representation simplifies things and takes all the weight off your shoulders. We seek resolution that is fair and amicable to your client’s interests. We understand what you or your client may have went through with the hurricane and want to make it better.
Peer Review and Loss Consultancy
Our team offers objective review to assist you in taking the most efficient steps towards resolution. We want nothing more than to help get your claim resolved efficiently, amicably, and accurately.

We are available all hours of the day, prepared to do whatever it takes to make your client’s life better after this epic natural disaster.
Price & Scope Expert Witness Testimony
Given the passing of Senate Bill 2A, much is to be learned in the upcoming months in first party property Ian cases. We forecast many cases will involve damages resulting from both flood and wind generated forces. In these situations, it is imperative that the expert is able to testify on the applicability of valued policy law, if and/or how Post-Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) will be applied [or enforced] by local authorities.
