Types of Vandalism 

​The most common type of property vandalism can occur when tenants are evicted from a commercial or residential property. Property owners enforce their rights to evict, thus upsetting their tenants and leading them to wreak havoc with no regard or respect for the owner or property.

In some cases the tenants completely trash the premises, making holes in the walls, graffiti, smashing appliances and fixtures, and many other damaging things.

This is where a public adjusting team comes in.

We will make sure you have the appropriate coverage and then begin outlining the loss to proceed with an insurance claim.

What Are Vandalism and Theft? 

The intentional destruction of property is popularly referred to as vandalism. Some examples include:

  • Breaking windows
  • Slashing tires
  • Spray painting a wall with graffiti
  • Destroying a computer system through the use of a computer virus

Vandalism is a malicious act and may reflect personal ill will, although the perpetrators need not know their victim to commit vandalism. The recklessness of the act imputes both intent and malice.

Because the destruction of public and private property poses a threat to society, modern statutes make vandalism a crime. The penalties upon conviction depend on the extent of the damage but include:

  • A fine
  • Jail sentence
  • An order to pay for repairs or replacement

In addition, a person who commits vandalism may be sued in a civil tort action for damages so that the damaged property can be repaired or replaced.

In law, the crime of taking the property or services of another without consent is called theft. Under most statutes, theft encompasses the crimes of larceny, robbery, and burglary. Larceny is the crime of taking and carrying away the goods of another with intent to steal.

The Stellar Public Adjusting team will approach a vandalism and theft situation clearly with the knowledge and expertise to be able to successfully recover what you deserve.

How to Get Started on a Vandalism Insurance Claim

​If you believe you are the victim of a malicious attack on your home, including damaged assets in your home, car, or business, the first step is to document everything.

Take photos of valuables, appliances, fixtures, computers, and other items. Remember to check with your insurance company regarding specific items and if a specific rider needs to be purchased to maintain coverage.

A vandalism damage public insurance adjuster advocates for the policyholder in appraising and negotiating an insurance claim. They are the only type of claims adjuster that can legally represent the rights of an insured during an insurance claim process.

Once hired, Stellar Public Adjusting does the following:

  • We will inspect the property and accurately assess the damage.
  • We will help you file an insurance claim to get the maximum amount.
  • We investigate your home’s past to get a full picture of the damage history. A public adjuster can open up insurance claims from years ago to explore if a homeowner received a fair and equitable recovery for the vandalism damage.
  • Our team of skilled negotiators will meticulously go through all the evidence and document everything to make sure you get the most out of your settlement.
  • A demand sum is then presented to the insurer for the assessed cost of damages.
  • The cost is negotiated and a settlement is made.

We’ll even help coordinate the vendor to help you restore your home, car, and/or assets back to top form!
