Knowing When to Pursue a Homeowner’s Insurance Claim

When you’re in a situation that possibly warrants a homeowner’s insurance claim, it’s important to understand the appropriate course of action. This is especially true if you’ve been injured or are in a situation that may lead to challenges or an injury.

Many people are afraid to file homeowner’s insurance claims because they’re friends with the home the incident occurred. However, these plans are in place to compensate you when misfortune arises, or tragedy strikes.

In this article, we’ll discuss when you should pursue a homeowner’s insurance claim so you can receive compensation when you need it.

What Is Homeowner’s Insurance?

Homeowner’s insurance is coverage through an insurance provider that covers a homeowner in the event someone is injured on their property or their home incurs certain forms of damage. This form of insurance is available to protect the homeowners themselves and individuals who frequent the property.

If you experience some type of injury or misfortune on someone’s property, it’s important to file a claim with their homeowner’s insurance company. The following section explains when you should take action in a homeowner’s insurance situation.

When to Take Action

There are certain situations where you must take action and file an insurance claim against an individual’s provider. The following list provides an example of these situations:

Repair Issues

When someone’s home falls into a state of disrepair and you are injured, you should take action in the form of a homeowner’s insurance claim. This may include situations like broken stairs, cracked sidewalks, faulty floors, or other situations.

Ice

Ice or snow is another major issue when it comes to homeowner’s insurance. If you fall as a result of ice or snow on the homeowner’s property, you’re eligible for payment from the insurance company. When the homeowner doesn’t take measures to warn you about the ice or clean it up, you have the opportunity to receive compensation.

Spills

Whenever a homeowner or someone that lives on the property spills a substance, such as oil or another liquid, and you fall as a direct result of the liquid, you’re eligible for payment. If you are injured during the fall, homeowner’s insurance is responsible for covering your medical bills and other expenses.

When you incur any expenses because of an injury on a homeowner’s property, it’s your right to receive compensation for your ordeal. Contact Gremer Law to help you receive the help you deserve.
