Flood Damage >> Debris Removal

In case of a Debris Removal, contact your homeowner’s insurance company right away. If at all possible, have your flood insurance policy numbers ready when you call. Find out how they want to handle your claim. They might have special processes set up if there are many people that were involved by one natural disaster. If your home is unlivable, find out if your flood insurance company will pay for temporary living expenditures. If so, ask if this will minimize the sum you eventually receive for flood damages.

  1. Don’t wait for the Debris Removal insurance agent or claims adjuster, but do take many photos and keep flood damaged objects as proof of loss. Do it as soon as possible, as insurance claims are typically handled in the order they were received. File an insurance claim even if you are not exactly covered for this kind of natural disaster, as you might be protected for some secondary results, such as a fire and water damage that many times is the result from an earthquake. Make it easy for the flood insurance company people to find you and your personal property. Leave your phone numbers where the Debris Removal insurance claims adjusters could reach you.
  2. Give them a list of your items from the flood damage, and a note if the list isn’t all there. Take documents on all conversations with the claims adjuster, and be sure to write follow-up letters to the insurance company to confirm what was said. Find out what your neighbors’ claims adjusters are saying, but keep in mind that your policies might not be the same. Contemplate bringing in extra or impartial adjusters if you are not content with your insurance company’s Debris Removal damage proposals. But also remember that these dealings will prolong the settlement and might cost you extra money.
  3. Settle the insurance claim, but don’t be too fast to do so, and do not accept any settlement checks as being final. You might need to file another Debris Removal insurance claim later, for instance, if your house is robbed. You might be qualified for substantial tax deductions or refunds. The guidelines can be difficult, so it’s a good idea to take this up with your tax adviser or other qualified expert. Low-income people could get free legal advice from your local members of the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
  4. If you have to evacuate your home, let the local authorities know it will be uninhabited. You might want to lock up your home to avoid destruction or looting by emergency boarding up your windows and doors. Be sure that others know where you went if you have to evacuate your home. Let your family and friends, your Debris Removal insurance company, home mortgage company, your employer, the post office, the package delivery services, fire and police departments, utility companies, and your children’s schools know where you will be.
