For service and claim issues, we may send someone to inspect your property and verify information about its value and condition, or we may request you bring or send it to one of our authorized service centers. A photo of any property might be taken. We may review warranty claims information and other loss information reports to adjust some claims.
We may obtain the additional information we need from third parties, such as other insurance companies, government agencies, information clearinghouses, courts and other public records.
