Unfortunately, there is no way to predict when a fire will strike. Nor can you estimate the amount of destruction or damage that is left behind. If you, or someone you know, has recently dealt with a fire, you may not know what your next steps should be and you may have some unanswered questions.
Filing a Fire Damage Claim
Your first step is to file a property damage claim. When filing a claim due to fire damage or even soot and smoke damage, your instinct may be to call your insurance company first. The problem is that the insurance company doesn’t work for you. Not only that, they may only have experience and training regarding insurance policies and may not know much about property appraisal. It’s important to have someone on your side who truly understands and has experience dealing with fire damage specifically. Before calling your insurance company to file a claim, you should contact a licensed public adjuster.
Public Insurance Adjusters Work for Policyholders
Compared to a regular insurance adjuster, a public insurance adjuster works on behalf of the policyholder. By working for the policy holder, public insurance adjusters focus on obtaining a settlement that is fair and equitable. Our public insurance adjusters can work with you from the very beginning so that the claim is handled right from the start and all throughout.
When it comes to filing a property damage claim, the process is time sensitive. It can also be confusing and frustrating. To earn a fair settlement, you need someone on your side.
