How to Protect Your Rights and Your Property

Before you do anything, you should consult an attorney. At the Chopin Law Firm, we handle insurance claims for individuals and businesses and are available 24/7. The following is a checklist for immediate action you should take. It will best equip you for the road ahead.

  • Step 1: Photograph as much of your damaged property as possible. Include all of your contents: clothes, plates, memorabilia, toys, etc.
  • Step 2: “Mitigate your damages.” Meaning put a tarp on your roof, board up broken windows and doors and protect your property as best as you can.
  • Step 3: Get your hands on your insurance policy! Every policy is different. See what it covers and what is does not. If you do not have a copy, call your agent or go online.
  • Step 4: Contact FEMA. You may be eligible for any number of state and federal programs.
  • Step 5: Make a detailed list of items that are either missing, destroyed or damaged. Write down how much you paid or what it would cost to replace.
  • Step 6: If you have them, collect and organize all receipts and bills. This helps document the age and purchase price of your damaged items.
  • Step 7: Obtain a detailed estimate for all short term and long term repairs. Get your own estimate! Do not rely on what your insurance company tells you.
  • Step 8: Keep and organize all receipts of all hurricane-related expenses. Most policies will reimburse you for this. Also, keep a ledger of time and energy spent cleaning, mitigating, and repairing your home. This can sometimes go toward your deductible.
