What to Do Immediately After a Loss

When you suffer a property loss, the burden of proof falls on you to fully document your claim. Otherwise, your insurance company has every right to deny what you need. If you suffer from a property loss, here are the steps you want to take for your own protection.

1. Protect Yourself and Others

Your safety is the main priority. If you must enter a damaged building, please be careful. If you have any doubts about your safety, do not go in. Instead, contact local officials to determine the status of the structure first. Additionally, you want to report any downed power lines or gas leaks to the appropriate authority.

2. Prevent Further Damage

If there’s a way to prevent any more damage from occurring, do it. For example, you should have the electricity shut off if there is water in the house. You can also put a tarp over a hole in your home’s roof to prevent further flooding. Your insurance company will want to know that you did everything you could to avoid further damage.
