Getting The Most Out Of Your Disaster Claim

February 14th, 2020

When disaster strikes, most families aren’t as prepared as they should be. However, the reality of the matter is that you can really only be so prepared, as each disaster is unique along with the damages they cause. These situations are stressful, and they leave home or property owners feeling overwhelmed wondering what they should do next. Calling a restoration company is important to getting your property back up and running again, but what should you be doing in the meantime? 

Making a disaster claim with your home or property owner insurance policy should be one of the very first steps you take, and it’s from here that you’ll make your subsequent steps to get your property back up and running again. Insurance providers are businesses first, and while you may think that your case will be a simple one, this is rarely the case. It pays to know just how to get the most out of your disaster claim. 

How To Get What You Need Out Of Your Disaster Claim 

Getting what you need out of your disaster claim is important, and the steps you can take to ensure this happens are:

- Make that first call – Your first step should be making that first call to your insurance company. Delaying this first call can be a major mistake, as insurance providers can use this delay is “proof” that you don’t require the help you’re claiming to need. During this call, you’ll find out what you can be compensated for, you’ll learn more about your deductibles, and your insurance provider can assist you in making those next necessary steps.

- Going through your property – After calling your insurance company, you’ll want to go through your property to prevent further loss, salvage items that are salvageable, and photograph or videotape any evidence of disaster damage. The evidence collection process in this step is an important one, proving to your insurance company the extent of your damage and your need for compensation. 

- Arrange for new living arrangements – If your home is damaged to a point of being unlivable, you’ll need to arrange for new living arrangements until your restoration is complete. In most instances, this is covered by your insurance provider. 

- Find the right restoration – After disaster strikes, you’ll need to find the right restoration company to restore your property to a livable state once again. Finding the right restoration company is important, and you’ll want to only seek those with knowledge, experience, and a customer oriented way of doing business.
