What To Do After A Loss

Property Damage

  • Protect yourself and others. Always be careful before entering a damaged building. If your property has sustained serious structural damage or if there are any doubts about its safety, contact local government officials to determine the status of your home before entering.
  • Do not alter the condition of your house before it is inspected by the adjuster. However, you should make emergency repairs to prevent further damage.
  • Prepare an inventory of damaged property. Include descriptions of each item, their age, and their replacement value.
  • Preserve all items being claimed in as good a condition as possible.
