WHAT SHOULD I DO FIRST?

Dealing with a disaster is never easy.

Whether your home has been damaged by a fire, hurricane or leaks, it can be an extremely stressful situation. The best thing to do is to take immediate action. Here are some simple steps to always follow:

TAKE PHOTOS AND VIDEO

of any damage to your home or property. Visual evidence is crucial to recover the money needed to make repairs or recover lost property.

CREATE A COMPLETE INVENTORY

of all your damaged items and document them properly. If you have any stolen valuable items, such as a car, jewelry or weapons, save the receipts. Also, be sure to list the make, model and date of purchase for each valuable.

CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY

immediately and file a claim. Make sure all paperwork is completed thoroughly. If you have any stolen items, contact the police and file a police report.

A PUBLIC ADJUSTER

can help you assess your damage, prepare a written estimate and even file your insurance claim.

CONTACT AN INSURANCE LAWYER

if your insurance company has low balled or denied your claim.

Whether your property has been damaged or destroyed, it is crucial to receive a proper settlement to cover your losses. If you believe the insurance company has not provided fair compensation, contact a Miami insurance lawyer who will protect your rights and fight for the money you deserve.
