How soon should I file a claim?
The best time to file an insurance claim for wildfire damage is right after you have fully assessed the damage that was caused. Just guessing the amount of damage is not a good strategy because your estimates could be drastically wrong, causing an insurance company to immediately deny your claim.
There are several steps a family should take immediately following a wildfire that has damaged their home. These steps include:
- Evaluating exact property damage
- Evaluating exact asset damage
- Consulting with an experienced wildfire insurance claims attorney
- Filing appropriate insurance paperwork
Taking these steps as soon as possible can help ensure that your insurance company takes your claim seriously, which can increase your chances of an approved claim.
