There’s been an incident and you need to start the claims process. For many, this scenario can feel intimidating and bewildering. Whether the situation involves property damage, an auto accident, or an employee injury, to make the process faster, easier, and more manageable, follow this PIE recipe:
Photograph. Take photographs of the scene, damages, injuries, the location of the incident, and any other relevant images. If you’re unsure of whether you need a photo, take it and err on the side of too many instead of too few photos.
Inscribe. Take copious notes about the incident. Your memory will fade, and details that you take for granted as unimportant may actually be key to determining liability for the accident. Clear notes regarding the people involved, where and what time it happened, what the circumstances were, and any other relevant information are key. These notes may form the foundation of your future insurance claim.
Expedite. File your insurance claim as soon as possible, when the details are still fresh in your mind. The quicker you file with your insurance company, the quicker you will be on the path to ensuring your claim is processed.
Your partner in this process is your insurance company, which can help guide you through all the required steps so your claim can continue to advance.
