Everyone has insurance, but very few people know how to use it when they need it. The insurance claims process can seem like a foreign language and learning how to file a claim after a disaster happens to your home, building, condominium, or investment property isn’t going to make understanding it any easier.
The buzz of the holidays has died down, but the winter weather is ramping up. With the promise of snow and strong winds, if your building isn’t properly prepared you could face a major disaster.
Filing a claim for major loss is no easy feat. You have to document every part of the loss and negotiate a fair settlement from your insurance company, with little to no insurance knowledge. On the other hand, your insurance company is an expert in loss, and will oftentimes try to pay out as quickly as possible and for as little money as possible.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But disaster can happen when you least want it to. Before you rush into decorating, follow our tips to avoid any holiday décor mishaps:
