Public Adjuster Helps Client with Storm Damage Claim

Storm Damage Claims are not always what they seem.  As Public Adjusters we will help by meticulously inspecting your property in search for ALL Storm Related Damages and help recover the proper settlement from your insurance company.

In late June of 2012 Tropical Storm Debby made landfall on the West Coast of Florida.  This was a heavy rain event with winds registering up near 65 mph and their peak that created many Tropical Storm Claims.  Not long after the storm had passed our firm received a phone call from Kimberly S. in Holiday Florida that had questions regarding a Tropical Storm Debby Insurance Claim problem.  During this call they indicated that they were only paid a bit over $4k and felt they were owed more and for a roof.  We set an appointment to visit the property the very next week.

Insurance claim for water damage to ceiling, as public adjusters we can help

Water damage to drywall ceiling in several rooms.

Upon our inspection we surprisingly had to agree with the insurance company when it came to the roof, it did not show any signs of wind damage in our opinion.  However, upon our detailed inspection of the property, we did feel that they were dramatically underpaid for the ensuing water loss which was admittedly covered under their policy.  We then reviewed the insurance company adjusters estimate and it was clear that the original claims adjuster had left out most of the damages.  We agreed to take on the claim and soon began our quest to recover the additional money that was due to the insureds.

Our first task was to prepare our estimate of the damages which was then submitted to the insurance carrier for their review.  Soon thereafter we heard from an adjuster looking to schedule a re-inspection, mind you this was the same adjuster that wrote the original estimate we did not have high expectations out of this meeting.  We met with this very same claims adjuster at the property and pointed out the items that he apparently missed, soon after this inspection with the SAME adjuster, we agreed to settle the claim for over $28,000.  The actual numbers were: $4,686 initial offer and final settlement of $28,795 and this was from the same adjuster!  That is an increase of 614%.

It made me wonder how many other claims are out there where the homeowner accepted their initial offer.  Being that the same adjuster was willing to revise his estimate this much, it leads me to believe that without anyone checking their work they will try to get away with what they can.

If you have or are thinking of filing a claim we highly recommend you speak with a qualified claims professional.  Hopefully your insurance company will do the right thing but it can’t hurt to keep them honest and have an experienced professional in your corner.

    When you find yourself with such a loss and are unsure of who to trust to help get you back on your feet, look no further than Claim Concepts. It was my first time ever needing to file a claim and knowing who to trust was the biggest concern. I searched numerous adjustors and landed on Claim Concepts. Eric ran the point for my case, but the team concept approach they use is fantastic. Very knowledgeable company and took care of us in a time of need. Honesty, integrity, trustworthy and caring. I would recommend them to anyone in need of such services - 4/02/2020

    Eric, Greg & Jesse were amazing! Very responsive, professional & freindly. My claim was not a simple cut & dry situation & entailed replacing the ceramic tile throughout my 2400 sq. ft. home. Claim Concepts handled everything from start to finish for me. They procured a great settlement and kept me up to date with all the progress as the claim moved forward.The settlement covered all my repairs plus! I'd highly recommend them to anyone!! Thank you guys for a great experience! - 4/02/2020

    Greg was super help in guiding me when I called with my frustration of not getting things done with my insurance company. Even though Greg does not practice in Virginia but he was super nice to guide me by spending 20-30 minutes and because of his guidance I was able to get things resolved and I am very happy now. Thank you so much, Greg! - 6/20/2020

    Definitely agree with others' comments here. Greg at Claim Concepts is an honest broker. He is not just friendly and reliable-- he is also knowledgeable and hard-working. Even after Greg recognized there was not a "big job" at our home, he spent a lot of time helping us get a complex issue sorted out with our insurance company. Claim Concepts are good people. - 10/16/2019
