Insurance Claims for Winter Storm Damage
Because winter storms can cause a variety of damage, if you do not document and prove your loss properly, you may not receive the claim proceeds you need to fully recover.
If your organization or community’s infrastructure is damaged by a winter storm, 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. There may be a roof collapse, a pipe bursting and causing water damage and possibly mold, or even sudden fire damage. Do you know if you are covered in your insurance policy? The effect of any unrecoverable disaster costs 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. With offices in Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Boise, ID, Provo, UT, and Anchorage, AK, our public adjusters are ready to help your organization or community with your winter damage insurance claim.
What To Focus On After Winter Storm Damage
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's or 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?
