Tips for Filing an Insurance Claim due to Property Damage
The property damage and insurance claims professionals at Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters offer policy holders advice when filing a property damage claim.
While many homeowners may not be familiar with the services of a licensed public adjuster, these professionals work solely for their customers to ensure that they are treated fairly and that no details are overlooked.
A person’s home is their castle so most homeowners maintain their property and have insurance to protect their investment. Unfortunately, weather related and man-made events that are out of a homeowner’s hands can cause damage or loss to a person’s home and belongings.
These events can range from theft and vandalism; faulty plumbing and electrical hazards; to natural disasters such as flooding, tornadoes and hurricanes. In the event damage does occur to an insured property, a policy holder that has never had to file a property damage claim may be unsure of what steps should be taken next.
The insurance claims and property damage experts at Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters provide the following advice:
- If a crime has taken place due to theft, arson or vandalism, report the incident to the police.
- Notify the insurance company.
- Make any temporary repairs if they will protect the property from further damage, but do not begin other types of repairs until they have been approved by the insurance company.
- Consider hiring the services of a licensed public adjuster to represent the claim on the policy holder’s behalf to ensure that all damages are properly valued for repair and/or replaced.
- Make a detailed list of known damages.
- Do not throw out damaged materials and belongings.
- If temporary housing is required, keep all receipts.
