WV flood victims: DOCUMENT your damage

It's hard to comprehend how people in the flood-ravaged areas of WV are getting their needs met. Legal matters are certainly not the highest priority right now while people are still mucking out.

But please pass it on to every flood victim you know, DOCUMENT your damage before you clean up. Document as you clean up. Take pictures, video, notes about your losses. It is the farthest thing from your mind as you are shoveling mud, but you may need evidence of your damages to support claims for benefits or insurance later.

Please spread the word of the need for documentation of damages, and help your fellow West Virginians get documentation they may need later.

Any West Virginian age 60 or over can contact WV Senior Legal Aid with legal questions or problems, whether flood-related or not. We will be here to help as claims issues arise, too. We wish every West Virginia flood victim safety and we will be here to help with your recovery.
