If you have insurance, then there are some things that you can do that will help when the adjuster comes out to your house to inspect the damage to your house.

If the adjuster can't get out to your house immediately, then the various pictures you take will be the best record you can have. You may be able to send the pictures to your insurance agent or the adjuster so that they can get started on filing your claim earlier than they might otherwise be able to. Even if they can't start processing it, when they do process your claim, you can make sure that the pictures are included so that there is documentation as to the damage.
Another thing that you can do is to make sure that you are available to the adjuster. That not only means that you need to be there when they come out to your house, but you also need to make sure that they can reach you regarding any questions they have about your claim.

The longer it takes for your insurance claim to go through, the longer it's going to take for your life to get anywhere back to normal. So, make sure that the adjuster has every possible way to contact you. That can include work phone numbers, as well as your cell number, home number, and an email address.
