Before you can make a claim under your auto insurance policy, you will have to fill out a proof of loss form. This insurance claim form is used to gain information that your provider needs to know to determine you truly did lose the property you say you did. It requires you to declare that the damage being covered is not your own doing and there is no cost included in the claim for anything you did not lose or sustain damage. The following is a list of information you will have to include in a proof of loss form.
Car Identification Information
You will have to give your insurance provider information that can help them identify your car. This could include the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as its serial number and your license number.
Why You are Making the Claim
You will also have to include specific information on what happened to your car. You will have to specify the time and date of the event as well as other descriptive information that will help explain how the damage occurred.
If the police were involved in any way with whatever happened, they will have filed a report. This must also be included with the form.
You will have to include a damage estimate, or the amount of money you want to claim. The estimate will have to be done by a representative from the insurance provider, so you will have to get this done before hand.
