Deadly tornado outbreak impacts Ohio and Indiana

A series of deadly tornadoes caused damage in parts of Ohio and Indiana Thursday night. The storms knocked out power for thousands and damaged numerous properties. Sadly, local news outlets are reporting numerous deaths, calling it a "mass casualty" event.

One area hardest hit by the storm is near Indian Lake, about 60 miles north of Dayton. Our thoughts are with those affected by the storms, and our disaster response team is there to help with recovery efforts.

The hours after such a devastating storm can be especially difficult for anyone who may have lost a loved one or have had their home or business damaged.

Our team of experts can help property owners who will need to file an insurance claim. The first few hours after a tornado are emotional, but there are critical deadlines property owners must meet to protect their property from further damage.

A public adjuster can handle the burden of starting your claim immediately so you can focus on your family or co-workers.

A public adjuster represents the property owner and their best interest throughout a property damage claim; they do not work for your insurance company.

Sill works for property owners throughout an insurance claim. Our team will review every aspect of your claim and existing policy to ensure you get the settlement you deserve.

Sill can uncover issues and coverage limitations that may go unnoticed or not be disclosed by your insurance company's adjuster.

When Sill works for you, we prepare, present, and defend your claim by generating a complete report about the damage, your insurance terms, and the value of your settlement.

Insurance Claim Process

After assessing the damage, starting the insurance claim process as soon as possible is essential. Contact your insurance company and provide them with the information and documentation you have collected.

The insurance company will likely send an adjuster to assess the damage and determine the value of the claim. If the damage is severe, they may also send a team of adjusters and specialists.
