What To Focus On After Fire 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.
  • How can I minimize the emotional toll on my family?
  • How large of an advance should I expect?
  • What is a “scope of loss?”
  • How can the adjuster represent both me and the insurance company?
  • Can my agent really help me with preparing my claim?
  • Why is a claim strategy so important?
  • Understand all of the stake players (board up contractor, contents remediation company, insurance agent, insurance adjuster, public adjuster) and their respective interests. Get educated.
  • Successful evaluation of damages hinges upon a well-coordinated effort between estimators, inventory specialists, and consultants. Do you have the right experts lined up? Should you only rely the insurance company’s cadre of experts?
  • Can smoke damage be cleaned completely from soft goods? Hard goods? Structural elements?
  • What if someone in my family has severe allergies or compromised health?
  • What about mold caused by the water damage? Is that damage covered?
  • What if I incur costs to dry everything out to prevent mold, are those costs covered?
  • What is pressurized smoke?
  • What is the difference between letting the cleaning company remove the contents to estimate the damage and hold them versus removing and cleaning them? Should I let the cleaning company take and clean everything?
  • Can the contract for emergency board up authorize the contractor to do more work than I need done immediately?
  • How long am I really going to be out of my house?
  • Do I have to use my advance to buy furniture for the rental home? Why can’t I just rent the stuff?
  • How much of my time will this take?

Homeowners Our Public Adjusters Have Helped

You and your staff were extremely sympathetic and very professional in the way our claim was handled. We know there is no way that we could have received anywhere near as much compensation from the insurance company as what you were able to get for us. You got us more than we ever expected. One of the best things you did for us was taking over and doing all the negotiations. As you know, we met the adjuster from the insurance company the day after the fire and never spoke to him again as you handled everything.

There is no doubt that your firm was instrumental in helping us receive a fair settlement with our insurance companies following the fire that devastated our home…. State Farm did not act fairly with us from the very beginning…Once your firm took over, things immediately began to happen…Every person or firm that you put us in touch with proved to be professional and invaluable to us. During our final negotiations, our adjuster from The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International forcefully pressed for a just settlement to our claims. The fire at our home was an unfortunate accident. Our hearts go out to others who experience damage or loss to their homes and possessions whatever the circumstances.
