TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - As people pick up the pieces of their homes, cars, and other belongings, insurance companies are reminding them to file claims. 

While your insurance might not cover all of the damage, filing an insurance claim can recover some of what you might have lost.

Paige Lunger, Associate Director of Nationwide Insurance, says to get your claim in as fast as you can, so that an agent can start assessing the damage. 

"As soon as they can report it the better. We do try and triage the claims and get those out in the effected areas as soon as possible," said Lunger. "We do try and classify claims in their severity and that also helps us in knowing who we need to be sending out to those locations."
