It’s National Fire Prevention Week, so I just want to remind you about documenting damage as a best practice if you have a claim. Sometimes homeowners call after damage to their home has already been fixed, and then they want to file a claim. It might not be covered unless you have pictures.
Whether it is your home, auto, boat or RV, if you have damage from an accident or other type of negative impact event, take pictures of your damage AND the other party’s damage. Customers will often call me after an accident because the other party involved is claiming more damage than initially expected. If you have pictures, we have proof.
If there is an accident involving a vehicle, don’t forget to take pictures of the license plate, registration, and even the driver’s license if possible. All of that information might be useful. Get information from a witness. Ask them for their contact information so the adjuster could reach out if needed.
