Public Adjusters for Builder’s Risk

Our public adjusters are highly experienced in claims involving builder's risk. We guide you through the entire claims recovery process, working to get you the maximum amount for your claim.

When a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. How are you covered?

It may be the largest development project in your company’s history, years in the making. A project that you may have to bet your future on. Then, when a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. When your project is under construction, it is vulnerable to a range of natural and man-made disasters that can threaten your investment within moments. How are you covered by a builder’s risk insurance policy?

After a disaster, it isn’t just about the hard costs of repairing and rebuilding what was damaged or lost. It’s about the soft costs, too. Because a disaster has delayed your completion date, the additional expenses and potential business income loss you now have to bear can be extraordinary. Rather than leaving it up to your insurance company to decide what can be covered, our public adjusters have the expertise and proven results to evaluate, document, and present a detailed and comprehensive claim of all losses to prove what you are entitled to under your policy. We work only for you, negotiating and expediting a maximum claim amount so you can recover and get the job done.

    You and your team worked closely with my team of professionals that included the contractors, the engineers, the industrial hygienist, the remediation crews and most importantly, the insured (me) and guided us through this complex and at times, frustrating process. You are able to accurately assess the building loss as well as the loss from business interruption...You have efficiently and effectively negotiate on my behalf with the insurance company...The final insurance settlement was more than three times of the initial settlement offer of $500,000. I could not have accomplished this without your help. The best part is that all the insurance benefits were paid up front. Now the construction is completed, I am happy to say that I got almost a new office building, with more than 65% of the interiors and exteriors being re-done.

    As you know, I started negotiating with their adjuster on my own after the loss occurred. That was perhaps the worst business decision I have ever made. I finally realized that I needed representation by someone who was an expert in insurance losses. By the time I engaged your services MSI had already had their own consulting engineer look at the building and had recommended a repair plan that was totally unacceptable. It took Adjusters International to undo that plan and negotiate the settlement to which we agreed. Based upon the offer to settle made by MSI before Adjusters International intervened and the one we finally accepted, the final settlement was nearly three times the original offer. Or to put it another way, I received an additional sum of money that was twelve times more than the fees Adjusters International charged me. That was a good investment!
