Tips For Submitting Fire- or Smoke-Damage Insurance Claims
Did you know that insurance companies sometimes use tactics to delay your settlement or push for additional investigation in order to justify denial or a lower settlement for your claim? follow these tips to keep your claim on-track even if you’re not quite ready to hire a public adjuster to help with your claim:
- Ask for a digital or physical copy of your insurance policy from your agent - make sure it’s a certified copy!
- Request a fire report from the local Fire Marshal.
- Compile a list of all your damaged personal property, including the age of each item, as well as cost, color, brand, quantity, etc.
- Do not allow a restoration or removal company dispose of your property until you have met with your insurance provider’s adjuster.
- Obtain quote estimates from third-party vendors and companies to check against your insurance company.
- Keep a list of all times/dates you communicated with your insurance company and by what means (email, telephone call, formal mail correspondence, etc.).
- Demand a written explanation from your insurance provider if your hurricane claim is not settled within 60 days.
- Read over your policy for additional hidden benefits. Ex: in many total-loss scenarios, a potential 35% extra coverage above the policy limit may be available.
- Take it slow. Insurance providers and “restoration” companies will pressure you to make decisions quickly. Never jump into a decision before acquiring all the information.
What Happens When You Submit A Fire- or Smoke-Damage Insurance Claim
It is an unfortunate reality that victims of fire are often taken advantage of by insurance companies because they are aware of your desperation. There is often a large difference between what the insurance company’s claim adjuster offers you as a settlement and what you are entitled to contractually per your policy’s provisions and a comprehensive estimation of damages. Aaraya’s adjusters ensure that the decisions about your home and possessions are made by you, not your insurance company’s adjuster.
Our trusted and experienced public adjusters understand insurance policies and are dedicated to negotiating the largest possible fire claim settlement. Do not allow yourself to get caught up with common mistakes that result in major complications and delays that can result in claim denials or smaller settlements that you are entitled to. Focus on rebuilding your life and leave the rest to us.
Both our expertise and aggressive approach enable us to speed up the insurance claim process and show your insurance company the true value of your claim.
