Public Adjusters for Homeowners Collapse Damage
As your policyholder advocate, we break down walls with your insurance company to get you the money you are entitled to from your claim.
A collapse can happen from sudden natural disasters like a mudslide or hidden causes that over time compromised the structural integrity of your home, such as insufficient construction methods and draining systems, decay, and infestation. Even heavy collection of rainwater on your rooftop could lead to roof damage and be considered a cause.
Still, your homeowners insurance policy may state exclusions or limitations related to these causes that could limit your coverage if you suffer collapse property damage. It can leave you vulnerable to an unreasonable damage assessment by your insurance company and its adjusters that will not get you what you deserve. That is why our team of public adjusters works on your behalf, bringing to the situation unmatched professional experience in claim management. We are fluent in your policy coverage, properly evaluate and document the extent of property damage, and negotiate your claim for the maximum amount so and your family can recover sooner.
What To Focus On After Collapse Damage
How much do I really need to know?
How can I minimize the emotional toll on my family?
How can I minimize the effect on my work/career?
How large an advance should I expect?
Is there anyone on my side?
How much time over the next several months will you need to put aside to handle your claim properly? How will all those hours affect your family? Your job?
What is the emotional investment that you will need to commit to the process?
Can you get paid for your time?
Are you entitled to an advance from the insurance company? What is reasonable?
What is your broker or agent’s role? Will his/her role be active or passive? When faced with supporting your position or the insurance company’s, where will he/she stand?
Are you familiar with the forms/practices below and what their request/issuance is telescoping? Request for a Proof of Loss. Reservation of Rights letter. Request for an Examination Under Oath.
What does it mean when the insurance company recommends a preferred vendor? Who is this vendor working for, really?
Contractors may tell you they can do what public adjusters can do. Can they really? What is their background and education in insurance? Are they bonded? In many states, like California, it’s even against the law!
What is the insurance company’s motivation in preparing a reconstruction estimate for you? The policy says it is your responsibility. Why are they willing to do it? How do they benefit?
What is the difference between functional replacement and true replacement? Should you care? Why?
How is actual cash value determined?
Can you do the repairs yourself? Are you entitled to the profit that a contractor would typically charge? Are you entitled to the overhead that a contractor would typically charge?
What are the benefits and the pitfalls of replacing your home vs. selling?
Do you have to replace on the same site? Can you buy or build elsewhere?
Can you collect code coverage allowances if you build elsewhere?
How quickly can you get started rebuilding?

Don't Worry,' he said, 'you do not need any professional adjuster working with you. I will handle everything at no cost to you.' Like a babe in the woods I went along with him and quickly learned that the only people tougher to collect from than an insurance company is a bankrupt restaurant. Insurance companies like to collect premiums but do not graciously pay the insured what is rightfully his. Their adjusters before being hired are evidently screened for their ability to be unfair and insensitive to the plight of the poor homeowner. I, a seasoned businessman, quickly learned that I was no match for all the roadblocks the insurer set up in order to reduce their exposure…Once you came on the scene the ball game changed and the playing field was leveled…as a matter of fact I felt that I now had the edge. The professionalism and expertise you brought to the scene enabled my wife and me to finally relax and to finally believe that the matter would be concluded fairly and that we would receive the settlement that was due us. And that's what happened.

Super Typhoon Paka, as the storm came to be called, was a 12-hour session of destruction for the island of Guam. Stirring up winds in excess of 200 miles per hour, the tropical cyclone tossed buildings, planes and ships across the island like discarded toys. Among these was the headquarters of Continental Micronesia, a subsidiary of Continental Airlines. The main offices, the marketing buildings and the planes were damaged by the powerful typhoon.
