If your home suffered storm damage, hopefully, you’ve already taken the steps to file your claim in order to fix it. While we hope your experience of dealing with your insurer is a smooth and stress-free process., dealing with them can be a tremendous headache if you haven’t prepared properly. We’ve handled numerous insurance disputes, and these tips may help ease the process.
First off, don’t forget to keep documentation and records on everything. You may be surprised at how lengthy the claims process can be and the small details your insurer will ask you for. Have your claim number handy, make sure you have receipts for the money you’ve spent on damages related to the claim, and it wouldn’t hurt to make a log of your dealings with your insurance company. If your personal property was damaged, make sure you have an inventory of it as well as photographic evidence.
If your claim is denied or you feel you were not given a sufficient amount of money for your damages, you may wish to get a second opinion. It’s also a good idea to look over your policy with an insurance attorney to make sure you’re making the most informed decision regarding your insurance claim denial.
