Step 1: Speed Dial your Insurance Company

First things first, inform the Insurance Company about the all damages that has occurred due to the fire explosion. You do not have to be precise; an estimated damage report works here. While estimating damage make sure that you preserve all burnt materials as an evidence. The company will then send a competent surveyor to establish the total damage. Also ensure that during this time, you do not renovate or repair any damage caused to the property as it can hinder the process of the reimbursement.

Step 2: Papers, Papers, Papers!

Upon informing the Insurance Company, you will be asked to file a claim. This is where you require precision! Ensure that you mention each detail on the claim request form correctly.

The claim request form will require the following items to be precisely documented:

  1. Date of Fire explosion
  2. Type of Damage
  3. Any related injuries
  4. Condition of property
  5. Description of damaged items
  6. Location of the property
