Florida Theft & Vandalism Claims Lawyer

Dealing with Theft & Vandalism on Your Property

The possibility of theft and vandalism are some of the most frightening ordeals that property owners have to deal with. No matter how many locks we install on our doors, there is always a way for perpetrators to enter your property. When this happens, your property insurance claim can significantly help you recover the damages you sustained. The steps you take right after you discovered the theft and vandalism on your property can be especially crucial in your claim process.

Immediately following the discovery of theft and vandalism:

  • Call the police and file a police report
  • Inform your insurance company regarding the incident
  • Make a detailed list of everything stolen or vandalized
  • Gather documentation to support the stolen or vandalized items on your list
  • Take photos of the crime scene
  • Do not attempt to clean up your property to preserve evidence

It is also important that you contact Strems Law Firm, P.A. to make sure that you recover the full and reasonable amount of compensation from your insurance company.

Types of Vandalism

When vandalism occurs on your personal property, especially your home, it feels like a personal attack. Some examples of "smaller" acts of vandalism include a keyed or scratched car, getting "egged", or trashing the property. Larger acts of vandalism include graffiti, broken windows, or slashing car tires. Any act of vandalism should be taken seriously as these are considered intentional acts.

Proving Ownership of a Stolen Item

One of the most difficult parts of filing an insurance claim for a stolen item is proving that you owned the item in the first place. Keeping an updated inventory of your personal belongings is highly recommended for this reason. However, if you don't have that proof of purchase with receipts and/or bank statements could potentially help prove ownership.
