Why Filing a Police Report Is Important
The reason that insurance companies are skeptical or careful with a theft and vandalism insurance claim is that they want to make sure that the policyholders are telling the truth. Anyone can call their insurance company and say they have been robbed, but there needs to be concrete proof that theft and vandalism took place. That is why calling the police and filing a police report is so crucial. The police are able to compile a list of items in your home or business that were stolen, so that they have a better chance of getting your stuff back, but that your insurance company has a record of the stolen items and belongings. This is the best way to help the police and ensure that you get a settlement that is able to help you replace your stolen items and belongings.
It’s important to note, however, that a list of items and belongings isn’t enough to convince your insurance company that these items were stolen. You will need more proof to provide to the insurance company so they are more likely to believe and help you. Some things that can help you prove that you owned said stolen belongings and items is having a record of the following:
- Credit card statements
- Security footage
- Tax returns
- Insurance policy endorsements
Having these types of records is going to help tremendously in getting the theft and vandalism insurance claim for your Indianapolis, IN home or business.
