Dealing with the aftermath of property damage can be a stressful and exhausting ordeal. If this is your first time handling this type of situation, you are likely scrambling to figure out how to proceed in a way that restores your home or business as quickly as possible. A Public Adjuster can help you through this process, preparing all the necessary documentation and negotiating with your insurance company on your behalf. There are a few steps you can take immediately following the damage occurrence which will help expedite the preparation of your claim.
First, you should take photographs of the damage sustained by your property. Make sure to take both wide shots and close ups that clearly display all aspects of the damage. It is better to have too many photos than not enough, and with cell phone cameras and cloud storage it is easy to take a plethora of pictures to support your insurance claim. If you have any photos which show your property before the damage occurred, you should gather these together along with the photos you’ve just taken of the damage in order to clearly illustrate your property’s present condition as opposed to its normal condition.
If your claim includes damaged or lost personal property, you should prepare a complete inventory of all items missing or destroyed as a result of the incident. Do a complete walkthrough of your property to ensure any and all missing or damaged items are accounted for in your submitted claim. If you have any receipts or proofs of purchase, especially for more expensive items like televisions, furniture, or computers, you should gather those as well so copies can be made to include in your claim documentation.
