When a fire hits, it can be devastating for you and your loved ones. Home is where the heart is and losing your home is a situation no one wants to deal with. When the fire dies down though and you’re left to pick up the charred pieces, what should you do afterward?
Checking in After the Incident
You will want to get in contact with a Pompano Beach public adjuster when you get the chance. Regardless of the condition your home is in whether it needs only a few repairs or is completely lost, you need to get in contact with us early on.
The reason for this is the estimate you’ll receive from an insurance adjuster will be less than satisfactory to help you start rebuilding your home.Filing an insurance claim can be a hassle and having a Pompano Beach public adjuster on your side can help to cut through issues you would experience.
The reason we encourage clients to contact us is because each day claims go underpaid and undervalued. Homeowners make a huge investment when purchasing a home and when they finally come to us didn’t realize they could pursue other options. We have clients come to us who have been referred by civil lawyers too to help homeowners to explore other options. We highly recommend talking with us first before even calling the insurance company. This helps us to get moving right away and we may even finish before the insurance company has had a chance to make a move.
Protecting the Site of the Incident
The shock of your house burning is enough to deal with, but there are precautions you’re going to want to take before leaving the premises. The first thing to do is to secure the premises which include making sure outside doors can be secured and locked. You can ask the Fire Brigade to help secure the premises if necessary, but if you plan on leaving the property there are other steps you will have to take.
In the event, you cannot stay at the site, be sure to remove any valuables from the building if possible. This will help to prevent theft in the event someone decides to take an opportunity to be an unwelcome guest in your home when you’re not around. The next step is to be sure to contact us, a Pompano Beach public adjuster before reporting your loss to your insurance agent.
Dealing with the Insurance Claims
