Insurance Recovery Workshops

New Dates Added by Community's Demand

Are you getting frustrated with your insurance adjuster? Are you confused by what the insurance company has told you about your claim?

If you suffered property damage from the Camp Fire, we understand how challenging and overwhelming the last several months have been for you, your family, business, and community. As policyholder advocates, our public adjusting team believes it is crucial that you have the knowledge you need to understand the complex insurance claims process and the rights afforded to you under your insurance coverages.

Based on high demand for information on commercial insurance claims, we will be hosting a special community workshop on February 13th with an emphasis on commercial claims. Two additional workshops will be held February 20th and 27th for business owners and homeowners who have suffered wildfire property damage. Our public adjusting experts will provide disaster recovery tips and tools to help you maximize and expedite your insurance claim beyond the initial advance payments or promises made by your carrier so far.
