Helping You Recover after Someone Steals from Your Louisiana Home or Office
Discovering that someone was in your home or on your property and took your belongings can be frightening. A thief may also have damaged property to enter your home. Since people tend to steal valuable items, it is common for theft-related losses to be extensive. Often, people file insurance claims to recover for stolen jewelry, cash, electronics, designer clothes or purses, appliances, and more. If you are a business owner, theft can disrupt your operations and cost you profits and even valuable customer or vendor relationships.
The first thing you should do after discovering any theft or missing items is to call the police. Providing the authorities with accurate information regarding the theft is critical to a future insurance theft claim. If you later discover that more items are missing, call the police and update the report. Your next step should be to contact an experienced New Orleans theft claims attorney who can help you through every step of the insurance process.
Filing a Claim
In order to seek compensation for stolen items, you must be able to show you owned and possessed each particular item. Having a detailed and regularly updated inventory of your possessions is always a good idea.

We can help you create detailed lists of stolen items, the value, and other necessary information.
