Insurance 101 – Chapter 8 – Volume 55 – Starting the Limitation Period

Starting the Limitation Period

In the majority of the claims presented as continuing and progressive losses, insureds report to their insurer that their building is suffering cracks in the foundation, concrete flat work, walls, or ceilings. They further contend that the damage is continuing and progressive and may have been due to acts occurring as early as the date the building was originally constructed. On investigation it is usually found that these types of damage have existed for many years but were considered by the homeowner to be normal until they had the opportunity to speak to a lawyer or Public Adjuster who advised them that they should make a claim against their insurer.
