Insurance Claims for Collapse Damage

If your organization or community suffers a structural collapse to any of its facilities, the full damage can be difficult to identify. Your recovery can depend on how you assess and report the damage. Our team of experts help you obtain the maximum claim recovery so you can get back on your feet sooner.
Coverage for collapse damage can be denied by your insurance company if you do not document and prove your loss properly.

If your organization or community’s infrastructure is interrupted by a collapse, you will not only face the challenges of securing everyone’s safety and protecting the rest of your property. You will now also have to secure the necessary funding for your recovery. Will it come from your insurance policy? If so, will it be enough to fully recover? The effect of any unrecoverable monies can be an immobilizing blow to your organization or community.

Our public adjusters have expertly managed claims for every type of disaster at the regional, state, and national levels. We are called upon by communities, non-profits, and government organizations for our unique ability to mobilize a top team of professionals who have the unmatched experience and comprehensive understanding of the laws, regulations, and policies involving disaster recovery. This enables us to consistently coordinate and obtain the maximum reimbursement for our clients, so that they may recover.

What To Focus On After Collapse Damage

Make sure you fully understand the meaning of each of the following before you move forward. Feel free to reach out to us for a no-cost discussion about your claim.
  • Why should the county, city, town, or district optimize its claim?
  • Do we have a commitment to taxpayers to recover the most possible?
  • What if the insurance company engages a building consultant?
  • What is my agent/broker’s role?
  • Will my code upgrade coverage address all my code related issues? ADA, fire codes, etc.?
  • Is there coinsurance in my policy?
  • Do we need to issue an RFP in order to engage your services?
  • Who in our county, city, town, or district will be involved in making the decision to hire us?
  • Is your claim a result of an event that may be funded by FEMA? If so, it is your obligation to first maximize your insurance settlement to satisfy FEMA’s eligibility requirements.
  • Why can’t we do it ourselves?
  • What emergency facilities are necessary to continue operations?
  • Can temporary facilities still be used at the end of the claim and be considered permanent? If so, how?
  • How do existing plans for renovations or enhancements affect my claim?
  • How do bond cycles affect the full replacement cost holdback provisions of a policy?
  • What building codes and regulations must be considered in the reconstruction?

Government & Non-Profits We Have Helped

You were there for me when I needed you…emotionally and professionally. You took the time to explain those things that needed explaining and you had the expertise to get the job done…quickly, efficiently and graciously. Your expertise resulted in a 100% increase in my settlement. The peace of mind you gave me as I observed your professionalism and competence in preparing the necessary information needed to resolve my claim had a calming effect and allowed me to go about my business without concern.

…Having never been through a major property claim, I was unprepared to stand up to the insurance company and their consultants. Gordon Scott initially promised a team approach with a well coordinated strategy and what I got was no less than hall of fame caliber…Your team educated me on the available coverage’s my policy provided. You were able to obtain maximum rental value while my home was untenable, correctly valued my personal belonging’s including my extensive wine collection, and ensured the mandated code upgrades were included in the final settlement. In the end I received over $3,500,000 when I was originally offered less than $500,000…Dealing with an insurance company takes a true professional who has the necessary experience and expertise. Greenspan filled that role and was truly an advocate on my behalf.
