Sprinkler Pipe Break results in Multi Million Dollar Settlement in Brooklyn School Supply Store

United Public Adjusters was retained by ownership of an approximately 100k Square Foot, Five Story Commercial Building after a sprinkler pipe broke due to freezing temperatures. The sudden pipe burst caused water to leak all the way down to the lower retail floors. This large loss water damage claim had a lot of moving parts since the building owner also had interests in the damages to the lower retail business. Our main focus was to expedite claim valuations and negotiations in order to ensure max insurance recovery while limiting business interruption.

Throughout the claim documentation process, our professional public adjusters brought in various subject matter experts to ensure all damages were properly valued. These experts included elevator repair consultants as water damaged the elevator cab and associated controls. Other experts included licensed NYC electricians and construction estimators as this claim required various areas of knowledge.

The retail tenant who suffered extensive water damages is also one of the oldest and largest vendors of educational and classroom materials in the country so it was critical to get them back to normal operations. United Public Adjusters managed the business personal property damage claim on behalf of the school supply store. We conducted and presented a thorough inventory of water damaged business personal property such as children’s learning books, children furniture, cash registers, display shelves, calendars, and pens to the insurance adjuster and salvage company. Shortly after our claim presentation, we achieved a fair and expedited settlement.

United’s expertise contributed to a combined settlement of over $2,000,000.
