CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Due to recent hail and wind storms, many of us will be calling our insurance agents sooner rather than later to file a claim to get our cars repaired.

So this is a look at what you can expect.

According to carsdirect.com, after you get in touch with your insurance agent, you need to take pictures of the damage.

Fill out the insurance claim form, and then get estimates on what it will cost to fix the damage.

In some instances your insurance company may send out a risk assessor to view your cars damage.

Carsdirect.com says make sure you have your estimates to show the assessor.
