What To Do About Hail Damage

Posted on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 9:43 AM
Home and Auto Insurance Erie PA

After the resent storm producing LARGE hail for many in the Erie Area, we have received many calls regarding how to approach a hail damage claim.

For CAR INSURANCE:

If you have comprehensive coverage on your auto insurance policy, filing a claim is an option.

  • The first step is to take pictures of the damage for documentation.
  • Next call your insurance company. Inform them that your car has suffered hail damage, and give them an idea of the extent of the damage.
  • After you decide to move forward with a claim, you can start looking to local body shops for estimates.
For HOME INSURANCE:
  • As with Car insurance, first document the damage. Take many pictures, and make a list of damage.
  • Second, call a contractor and obtain a quote to fix damage.
  • Next, determine if the repair costs are over your deductible.  Talk with your agent to determine if you should file a claim.
  • If you decide to file a claim, call your insurance company and convey the damage and the estimate to repair.

As always the HMM Team is here to help!  After all, we have been helping Erie area residents since 1872!
