Due to the tragic Northern and Southern California wildfires, our clients have recently asked us what they can do if their home is damaged or destroyed due to a wildfire. Here are some of the best tips to follow in case your home is damaged or destroyed due to a wildfire.

  • Notify your insurance carrier immediately of your loss

  • Create a list of all of your damaged or destroyed property

  • Ask your insurance carrier to provide you with a cash advance against your policy so that you can establish a temporary living arrangement if necessary

  • Keep a record of all of your expenses so that you can seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier at a later time

  • Make sure you gather all of the remaining property and secure it so that it does not get further damaged while you attempt to mitigate your damages

  • Obtain repair estimates on all of your damaged property

  • Obtain receipts for all of the items you are claiming

  • Make sure that you continue to pay your insurance premium

  • Make sure you do not allow insurance companies to push you around

  • Consider hiring an attorney to help you file your claim

If you or a loved one has been affected by a California fire, call us for a free consultation.
