In South Louisiana, severe storms are a way of life. When hurricanes, tropical storms or tornadoes hit our region, it can be a very stressful and overwhelming time. Many times the home is the main property that is damaged during these storms. However, there are times when you suffer storm damage to your vehicle in Baton Rouge and you must take the necessary steps to ensure that you have it repaired.
The most unsuspecting victim of a severe storm can be your vehicle. Sometimes, storm damage can take its toll on a vehicle. During the heavy storms of the Gulf Coast, the wind and rain can cause trees and other debris to fall and sometimes it will land on a parked vehicle. Oftentimes, this damage is not obvious to the naked eye but once a closer look takes place, you will discover the storm damage that has been inflicted on your car.
When it comes to insurance related issues, hurricane damage does not fall under your collision coverage. When you incur hurricane damage to your car due to non-collision issues like flooding, hail, and other natural occurrences, your insurance coverage will fall into the comprehensive category. Certainly every insurance policy is different. So, if you suspect your car has suffered damage from a hurricane or strong storm, then we encourage you to contact us at Medines Collision Center.
