Before you tackle the daunting task of handling your insurance claim on your own, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do you have the time and energy to inventory and document every item in your home, down
    to the last sock?
  2. Do you remember how much you paid for every lamp, chair, and appliance you’ve bought
    through the years?
  3. Will you be able to research the current replacement value for every item you lost easily and
    in a timely manner?
  4. Are you sure that the insurance company’s contractors are working on your behalf, or are
    they simply looking out for their interests?
  5. Are you confident that the insurance company will offer you all that you are entitled to?
  6. Do you fully understand your insurance policy, including the fine print, and how it will affect
    your claim?
  7. If you answered YES to these questions, do you really want to handle your insurance claim on your own?
