Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – Frozen pipes caused extensive flooding to a historic landmark house in the historical area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. United Public Adjusters & Appraisers, Inc. was immediately retained by the homeowner to ensure that the property, built in the 1800’s, was restored correctly. This beautiful home featured custom German cabinetry, which the homeowner was proud of, worth in excess of $100,000 dollars.
United experienced first-hand how the insurance company tried to artificially reduce the claim by intimidating the elderly policyholder with statements such as, “I see the water damages, but I can scrape it off with my fingers.” That’s when United stepped in to advocate on behalf of the homeowner by holding the insurance company accountable for complete replacement of the cabinetry at the right price. We negotiated back and forth four times and settled at a 138% increase from the original offer by the insurance company.
Our firm has extensive experience in interpreting policies and negotiating maximum settlement and we have handled numerous property damage claims for historic properties, high net wealth properties and estates.
While many residential and commercial property owners are not aware of what a Public Adjuster is, Education is key when negotiating and preparing a claim for damages with your respective insurance company. United Public Adjusters & Appraisers, Inc. ONLY Represents the Policyholder, NOT the insurance company! Don’t let the insurance company intimidate you out of a fair settlement.
