WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF AN INSURANCE CLAIM?
Insurance is unlike any other product out there because you pay for it and hope you never have to actually use it. After an accident or tragedy, insurance claims protect people from financial devastation. An insurance claim is defined as “a formal request for money after a major loss” at its most basic level.
When an insured item is damaged, stolen, or rendered unusable, insurance claims allow people to recover the value of the item without incurring a significant financial loss. Keep reading to find out how to file an insurance claim.
WHY FILE AN INSURANCE CLAIM?
For most people, the most valuable things in their lives, such as vehicles, homes, and health, are too expensive to replace out of pocket. Insurance claims are a tool for people to reduce the risk of disasters or accidents occurring in their lives. When life takes a turn for the worst, filing an insurance claim can empower average people to secure their livelihood.
