  • Answer any questions you may have pertaining to your claim

2. Evaluation

If an inspection of your property is needed, the claim professional will meet with you on location.They will:

  • Discuss your damages
  • Gather all the facts about your loss
  • Investigate the cause of loss
  • Take photos to document the damages
  • Evaluate your loss and/or complete an estimate
  • Possibly secure necessary samples for further evaluation

3. Settlement and Conclusion

The claim professional should contact you within the agreed time period established at the inspection or last contact.

If there is a full or partial disclaimer or denial of coverage, Velocity will provide you a letter setting forth the exact reason for such disclaimer, citing specific policy language to support that decision.
