Although most strategies and methodologies in adjusting theft and vandalism damage claims are similar to those for other losses, there are unique aspects to theft and vandalism damage claims that require special attention and expertise. Not everyone can handle these types of claims easily, especially without prior experience.
With respect to the theft / vandalism incident, most questions asked by the insurance companies will be answered and supported by official police reports that document the actual event. These reports actually contain an account of everything that might have happened. Insurance companies use them to verify that the event happened and to help them determine whether or not the claim should be accepted. These reports can play a crucial role in the outcome of your theft / vandalism damage claim. It’s critical that a police report be filed in any claim involving theft or vandalism. You should ensure that the police report and the report of the items being claimed are both correct. Insurance companies will look into all of these details to make sure that the claim is accurate.
Every day, a homeowner in the United States must deal with theft and vandalism. Knowing that these incidents are so common, you should have a plan for what to do if something similar happens to you. Understanding your insurance contract when dealing with theft and vandalism claims is crucial. You and your insurance company should be on the same page. As the policyholder, you must understand the terms and conditions of the policy. If your property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of a criminal act, you must file an insurance claim as soon as possible. Such cases must be reported immediately.
Be Careful When Filing Theft Claims
Typically, insurance policies will list Theft and Vandalism as two separate perils. You must know whether your policy does, too. In many instances, a property owner will incur losses from both crimes, and there is a fine line between how they may be defined. If a theft or vandalism claim is not thoroughly investigated and presented by a policyholder, it’s possible that the insurance carrier may consider addressing the loss under two separate claims, and therefore apply two separate deductibles.
If this happens, you may end up losing more money. Therefore, it’s useful to have a helping hand when filing your claim. This is where ProFloridian Claims comes into play. We will help you in such a situation and ensure that your theft / vandalism claim is filed properly.
