TROPICAL STORM SANDY FLOODED MANHATTAN causing a Condominium building on the lower west side to suffer damage. United Public Adjusters & Appraisers Inc. were retained after the building received a low offer from an out of state insurance adjuster. This is a typical situation because when tropical storms occur and the amount of claims drastically increases, many times insurance companies will bring on out of state adjusters to help with claim management. Out of state adjusters are just simply not familiar with the costs of NYC, thus putting your claim at risk of not being assessed properly.
Our team reviewed hundreds of repair contracts and change orders from electricians, plumbers, elevator mechanics, drywall installers, painters, water removal companies, and sprinkler companies. UPA filed and negotiated two supplements, which represented a 74% increase in insurance recovery for the client’s flood damages to the main level and basement.
Did you know that a public adjuster’s main job is to sort all of the chaos out on your behalf? Read on to learn about some of the challenges we help solve:
COMPLEX! We manage the complex aspects of the claim including submitting all the paperwork for the claim. When you suffer a fire, your property is burnt beyond recognition, and making a detailed list of all the damaged buildings and personal property is a job all to itself. We take this task on for you and ensure that every dollar is accounted for.
DELAYS! When the claim load increases, a decrease in insurance company response time can come into play. We make sure to expedite your claim and get answers quickly to settle your claim so that you can rebuild.
ALL THE QUESTIONS! Got another call or email from the insurance company requesting additional information? Are you losing track of all the information you owe? No worries, when you hire us, all the questions will be tackled by our team.
LACK OF RESOURCES! When you suffer a house fire or business fire, you will need all the correct resources, such as a public adjuster, and finding credible contractors such as restoration companies, board up companies, and engineers with everything else going on is the last thing on your mind. We help you find vendors to mitigate your damages and even arrange board up and hotel stay; should you become displaced.
TRIED, UNSUCCESSFULLY? Perhaps you submitted a claim and now you realize you’re in over your head or worse, your claim has been denied. No worries, we can still help even if your claim has been denied.
