The following tips provided by the Florida Insurance Council may be helpful when settling an insurance claim following a disaster.
Insurance Claim Tips
- The more information you have about your possessions, the faster your claim can be settled. You should already have a complete inventory of the items in your home that includes a description of the item, model and serial numbers (if applicable) and its original cost.
- Make a list of damaged items and take photographs of the damage for records of each item, including old receipts or bills.
- Do not discard items - the adjuster will need to see everything to properly assess the damages.
