Do You Have a Duty To Preserve Evidence in Your Insurance Coverage Case?

Within the insurance claims context, your duties are laid out in your insurance policy, but there's also a general legal requirement that parties should preserve evidence if
they can. If it's an item that you feel like you need to get rid of, the better practice is to let the insurance company know or let the other party know that you have this evidence
that, for whatever reason, you may not be able to preserve it. Perhaps it's going to cost too much money to preserve and you can't afford that. To give the other side notice
of that so that they can decide if they want to take on the obligation of preserving that evidence, but it's a better practice to preserve all important evidence in your case.
In fact, it may be in your best interest, also, because it may help you prove aspects of your claim by preserving that evidence, so I certainly wouldn't get rid of any evidence
without speaking to a legal professional about it.
