Insurance. Sure, we hope we never need to use it, but when disasters big or small strike, it may be time to file a claim. Filing a claim can help you get money to pay for repairs and other costs associated with fire damage, mold damage, or other issues covered by your policy. Here’s what to do when it’s time to file insurance claims in Orlando.
- Get a police report if necessary before filing insurance claims in Orlando.
Police need not be called in for every potential claim, but police documentation can be helpful. If you think it may help your claim, file a report after a loss.
- Take pictures and plenty of notes.
Documenting the damage through photos and taking detailed notes throughout the process is key! If theft is involved, make a list of the items stolen. Make a copy of your items, so you can turn the copies in to the insurance company and keep the originals for yourself.
- Contact your insurance company or agent
Your insurance agent should be contacted as soon as possible and should you decide to file a claim, you can file with the agent. Oftentimes, you have the option to file through their website or mobile app.
- Hire a public adjuster.
As part of the claim process, your insurance company will probably send an adjuster to investigate, report back on the damages, and make recommendations on how much money you should receive for your claim. You have the right to hire a public adjuster to work on your behalf. A public adjuster will handle your case and represent your interests when dealing with the insurance adjuster.
