Homeowners Insurance Claims for Tornado and Windstorm Damage

In the aftermath of a tornado, amidst a flurry of outside influence on the best way to file a claim for property damage to your home, know that we are here as your true advocates. We utilize our extensive experience in the insurance claim process and align our interests with yours, serving no other party.
Before the dust settles, we can be at your side dealing with the insurance company on your behalf so that you receive the optimum amount to recover from tornado property damage.

A tornado can wreak havoc on your home, puncturing roofs and walls, breaking windows, and tearing gas and water lines. Fires can erupt from damaged gas and electrical lines, while your home can also sustain significant water damage from an accompanying storm. Even worse, a tornado can leave your family without a home.

You may have many questions after such devastation, such as “Is wind damage covered by homeowners insurance?” or “What does windstorm damage cover?” Our public adjusters are here to advocate on your behalf as we lift the burden of managing your tornado insurance claim. We provide expert wind damage insurance claim management services to homeowners throughout California, including San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, Pleasanton, San Jose, Santa Clara, Fresno, Bakersfield, Santa Barabara, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, and San Diego  — as well as in and around Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada. Our public adjusters assist with a thorough inventory of your valuable contents and negotiate with your insurance company to get you the maximum amount for your recovery and the future of your family.

As a lawyer, a career labor negotiator and an author of a text on that subject, I thought I was up to the task of working out a settlement with the insurance company that would provide me enough money to do the job. Wow, was I wrong!...I soon realized that the complexity of ascertaining the true cost of construction, putting it in the form that insurance companies were used to looking at (Xactimate), and cajoling the insurance company to open the purse was well beyond my competency and experience… The Greenspan Co. / Adjusters International was able to achieve a settlement with the insurance company that was approximately 75% more than we would have received had we accepted what the insurer originally was willing to pay. We were happy to pay the commission…I learned, after the fact, that the process would have gone even better had we brought The Greenspan Co. / Adjusters International on board from the very beginning rather than after the insurer had made its initial determination of the amount it would pay…When a homeowner or a business owner has to face off with an insurance company without the help of experts, it’s not a fair fight. One needs to have an expert speaking for him or her. These folks are pros. What was particularly interesting to me was that Ken and his team didn’t approach the insurance company in an adversarial way. It was always in a conciliatory and cooperative manner, and it was clear to me that such an approach yielded much better results than a combative or adversarial posture. Moreover, they spoke the same language and understood the same rules as the insurer’s adjuster…We couldn’t have done this without them.
