Matt Monahan of The Hartford Insurance catastrophe claims operation explains steps you must know and do if you need to file a claim.
1. Contact the insurance carrier or your agent as soon as safely possible
2. Begin to document the damage through photos and writing down objects that will need to be replaced, do this only when it is safely possible. Keep receipts from repairing damage to your home and having to find other lodging as these might be covered under policy.
3. If you can safely prevent further damage to your home or property do so.
Storms happen and should your home be caught in the storm and damaged it is comforting to know there are the Hartford Home Insurance professionals ready to help.
