Fire claim? How to start an insurance claim

Fire claims increase dramatically during the winter months. The number of insurance claims to homes and businesses goes up as people turn to alternative sources for heat or begin to use the fireplace or furnace.

Sill public adjusters can help property owners who find themselves dealing with property damage caused by fire.

An insurance claim can turn into a long and stressful ordeal unless you have an expert on your side. A public adjuster does not work for the insurance company; they represent the property owner and their best interest throughout an insurance claim.

Fire damage can be devastating, leaving victims homeless, and in some cases, they may even lose valuable personal items. Sill is the leading public adjusting firm in North America, and our team specializes in fire claims.

If your home or business is damaged by fire, you will need to work quickly to begin the recovery process. Most people will call their insurance company, but it is good to contact a public adjuster to get professional help to handle the claim.

A fire claim is demanding on property owners who may need to find temporary housing, work to mitigate further damage, and assess the level of damage to create a proof of loss report.
