Hail storms happen when they are least expected, especially during the spring or summer months. If the worst happens to your car and you get caught in a hail storm, do not forget to submit an auto claim to your insurance to see if they can help pay for the damage.
To start, make sure you call your agent about the incident to see what can be done. Your agent can give you guidance on how to submit your claim, what your likely solutions are and how to move forward best.
After calling your agent and getting their advice, follow all the instructions they gave you to make sure you are doing all you can to get the results you are looking for.
Your agent will most likely ask for documentation of the incident, which you can provide through photos of the hail damage on your car. Make sure to get photos of the areas that were damaged the most and get them from different angles so all of the damage can be seen, and you will be able to get the most accurate results.
Make sure you keep copies of the photos of the hail damage in case you need them later on in the future.
You will also want to keep copies of bills from the incident to show your insurance agent and company.
Your agent can then figure out all the details for you, including how much you will be expected to pay and how much your insurance company will cover.
Make sure to have constant communication with your insurance agent and company because they will be able to provide you with the best advice and make sure you’re paying the least amount of money.
