Commercial Insurance Claims for Wildfire Damage

Property claims for wildfire damage can be managed when working together with our public adjusters. As your insurance company arrives with its team, it is important to have professionals on your side to develop a claim strategy to get your business back on its feet sooner.
Our experts move efficiently to evaluate and document the full scope of your damages and negotiate a maximum claim settlement to get you up and running.

If your commercial property is damaged in a wildfire, we understand your initial focus is on protecting your employees, operations, and customers. That alone can be a full-time job, as can be the next step of handling your commercial property insurance. When it is time to file a claim, your insurance company will provide its own adjuster to negotiate your property damage settlement. Who’s looking out for you?

Our team of public adjusters will work on your behalf in the insurance claim process. As your trusted advisors, we are fluent with insurance policy terms and conditions. We will evaluate and document your property’s wildfire damage in full detail to negotiate with your insurance company for a maximum claim amount so you can get back to business sooner.

Industries We Have Helped

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired Adjusters International to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts. ...Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from Adjusters International when we needed it most.

Certainly the tragedy of the World Trade Center explosion will remain etched in our memories forever. We can, however, take pride in the united response of hundreds of people which enabled the complex to be reopened in record time and reconstructed on an expedited schedule. At the same time, as you well know, we were involved in a long, sometimes agonizing process of pursuing settlement activities with insurers. Without your help, and the help of many others the settlement wouldn't have been concluded as successfully as it was. On behalf of The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, I would like to thank you for the expert advice you provided to me and my staff in our effort to bring the World Trade Center explosion insurance claim to closure. Your expertise and insight in this long and arduous negotiation were invaluable.
