Policyholders may be quick to file claims seeking settlements for replacements of faulty electronics or flickering lights, particularly after hurricanes, floods and windstorms. In reality, the problem may be within the electrical service panel.

Before settling for electronics that may not be damaged, adjusters should understand how the electrical service panel may be impacting policyholders and claims.
