Claim Process and Assistance Information

Claim Process and assistance information

An insurance claim is filed with a local representative of the insurance company. This representative is responsible for investigating the specific details of the insurance claim and negotiating the payment from the main insurers. After the claim is filed, the insurance company sends out an investigator called an adjustor or appraiser. The insurance adjustor evaluates the insurance claim and determines if the repair estimates are even. Insurance companies tend to accept the adjustors evaluation as the final word on the insurance claim.

While the entire claims is handled and managed by the Insurers themselves, we at Carnation would definitely assist you in filing the claims and provide our services to you.

Here is the list of various partner insurance companies with addresses and applicable claim forms. For claim assistance find your insurer, download the form as applicable, fill it and send across to the mentioned address for claim. For assistance, contact the toll free numbers.
