Post-Hurricane Matthew: Insurance Statutes and Regulations


Because Hurricane Matthew claims may be taking you and your colleagues to several different states, we thought it might be helpful to bear in mind the different claims adjusting standards and regulations in those states that were most affected. Below are links to the relevant statutes and regulations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Please note that the states may issue subsequent bulletins or advisories modifying these standards. Please let us know if you have any questions.
