This week marked the start of Spring; but Winter weather is still in effect! Make sure you're protected if you have to make a winter weather insurance claim.

After a harsh winter, property damage and loss can be very real problems for any home or business owner. Then, to add insult to injury, your insurance company may decline your claims for reimbursement. To ensure you're prepared for this, here are some steps you should take to ensure your insurance claims are strong.

Take Inventory of Damaged Property

Your first step should be taking inventory of everything that was damaged over the course of the winter. Do an inspection of your house and surrounding property to make sure you don't miss anything.

Get Lost And Damaged Items Appraised

After you have a list of everything that was damaged, the next step is estimating the cost. Having verified, accurate numbers is an important part of making sure your claim is strong, so find a reputable company or professional to perform the appraisal.

Keep Records of Every Correspondence

If you have followed the 1st two steps but your claim is still denied, you may need legal help, so making sure you've kept records of every communication between you and your insurance company is important. Save every email and letter, make note of every call, and keep track of any face to face communication.

Conclusion

Dealing with your insurance company can be a hassle, but if you're prepared and have put in the effort to make sure you have evidence to back up your claim, you can easily argue against their decisions with the assistance of a lawyer.
