Having to file a claim is never fun, but understanding how adjusters approach your loss can help you manage your expectations of the process. Every claim is unique, but there are some steps you can take to help make the process as efficient as possible:
- Stay in touch: Adjusters often handle several claims at once. If you get a phone call, voicemail, email or mailed letter from your adjuster, responding promptly can help your claim move faster.
- Ask questions: If you are unsure of something, always ask questions. Adjusters are generally ready and willing to answer your questions so that you feel comfortable with your claim and informed along the way.
- Keep records: Having receipts, photographs, quotes from contractors and other important paperwork handy to send to your adjuster can make things easier on everyone.
