About one in 20 insured homes has a claim each year, with the average claim totaling $13,814 between 2014 and 2018, according to the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I).

Filing a claim for the loss or damage of property is one of the worst experiences for a homeowner. And if errors occur during the claims process, a homeowner could face serious financial consequences.

Some common snafus homeowners make that can impact a claim include not securing coverage in time, choosing a deductible they cannot afford, and not having the right coverages in place.
