What To Do After An Insurance Claim

Claims can be a very stressful process. I’ve worked with my clients after car accidents, home fires, storm damage, and even a death in the family. Insurance claims are tied to the most stressful events in our lives. 

That’s why it’s extremely important that you work with an agent and a company that you trust. 

After an insurance claim, you will be assigned an adjustor to evaluate your loss. Depending on the type of claim, they will examine the property and gather more information. The adjustor will then determine the settlement and answer any questions that you may have. 

So what happens if things don’t go smoothly at first? 

Maybe you don’t agree on the amount or can’t get the right documentation? 

That’s where I come in. My job, as your agent, is to also be your advocate. My office goes to work to help you communicate with your adjustor if there is a problem. That means that when you need help, we’re there. 

Yes, sometimes you can get cheaper rates with unknown companies. And you might love being able to buy online without talking to an agent. 

But when it comes down to those stressful moments, it’s great to have someone you know on your side. Call my office today at 360-452-9200 and let us protect your family next. For more information and to read our customer reviews, please visit www.allstate.com/mattelwood
