Unfortunately, not only do these victims need to worry about what was stolen from their vehicle, they also need to address the broken windows or windshields due to such thefts. It’s a double whammy of sorts. One that seems to happen at the least opportune time.
The first thing you should do is document the damage and file a police report. Once you have that sorted out, call your insurance company to see what options you have. If you have comprehensive coverage, there’s a good chance you have some financial help when it’s theft or vandalism related.
