What to do after a tornado in 4 steps
- Call your insurance company: First and foremost, you need to contact your insurance provider. File a claim in a timely manner over the phone and in writing. The quicker you do so, the quicker an adjuster can respond and evaluate damages to your property.
- Review the terms of your policy: Read about the details before the adjuster arrives. You can’t change your policy now, but you can be educated on the extent of your coverage. Insurance companies only have to operate in good faith and conduct a “reasonable” investigation.
- List/itemize all damage: Make your own detailed and itemized list of all of the damage your property has sustained, including buildings, surrounding property, equipment and vehicles.
- Talk to an attorney: Don’t just accept a damage estimate handed down by an adjuster. We can negotiate to ensure full and fair payouts.
