  1. Call the police to report the incident/accident. Whether it is a burglary, theft, or car accident, the police will be there to make sure you and others are safe.

    If it is a homeowner’s claim, you will need to fill out a Proof of Loss Statement and list items that were stolen or damaged along with the replacement cost. Your claims professional will be able to supply this to you.

    If it is auto accident, the police will make sure that ambulances or emergency services are there to handle injuries and will also be instrumental in case other party (s) become difficult. Record the name and badge # of the officer that responded to the incident. Also, record the location, weather conditions, and time of day of the accident.

  2. Call your insurance agency as soon as possible to report the incident/accident. Gather as many facts, photos, reports, and any other information related to the event. The more information you have, the better the claims department will be able to help you and avoid delays.
