A prompt investigation to augment police and fire marshal investigations is necessary if you are to obtain the appropriate and just compensation from the insurance company in a civil case. Police and fire authorities typically are concerned with whether or not there has been a crime such as arson. In a civil case, however, you are dealing with an insurance company and the policy will normally contain a strict notice, documentation, and other proof requirements that need to be understood and put together in a timely and appropriate manner.
Police and fire authorities may concentrate on where they believe the origin of the fire occurred. They are typically not concerned about a comprehensive photographic inventory of the personal valuables or contents. Such a photographic inventory is necessary in order to provide as much evidence as possible as to the extent and nature of damage to real property and damage to personal property located within the structure.
