August 31, 2011 / TAMPA, Fla. / 

With Hurricane Irene setting up to be a policyholder nightmare because of the severe flooding and water damage, public adjusting firm Tutwiler & Associates has launched a website  and blog that will offer help to policyholders on maneuvering through the technicalities of National Flood Insurance and standard homeowner insurance policies. The site will provide claims insurance information and help, FAQ’s and the latest news updates about the storm. The site also links to a blog called Updates from the Field where the firm hopes to offer insight regarding key insurance claim issues that arise from the storm. For example a recent post warned policyholders not to sign their claim rights over to contractors and also to make sure they received specific scope of work information or risk not getting paid for by their insurance carrier. “It may seem simple, but we have worked every major storm since 1984 and we insured’s making the same mistakes over and over,” stated Charles “Dick” Tutwiler, President of the firm who helps homeowners and businesses manage their insurance claim.  Tutwiler public adjusters are licensed to handle Hurricane Irene claims in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia (no license required), West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York.
