When a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. How are you covered?
It may be the largest development project in your company’s history, years in the making. A project that you may have to bet your future on. Then, when a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. When your project is under construction, it is vulnerable to a range of natural and man-made disasters that can threaten your investment within moments. How are you covered by a builder’s risk insurance policy?
After a disaster, it isn’t just about the hard costs of repairing and rebuilding what was damaged or lost. It’s about the soft costs, too. Because a disaster has delayed your completion date, the additional expenses and potential business income loss you now have to bear can be extraordinary. Rather than leaving it up to your insurance company to decide what can be covered, our public adjusters have the expertise and proven results to evaluate, document, and present a detailed and comprehensive claim of all losses to prove what you are entitled to under your policy. We work only for you, negotiating and expediting a maximum claim amount so you can recover and get the job done.

Prior to [your] involvement, my insurance company omitted over half the damage in their estimate. During the whole process, from evaluating the damage to getting the fair market costs of labor and materials, to the final settlement, [your representative] displayed a real understanding, knowledge and professionalism. He truly represented the client against a difficult insurance representative for which I am gratefulAkbar KhanHomeowner
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.Alan K.

In the spring of 2013, the Village of Watkins Glen and Schuyler County suffered a devastating fire to its new, 15,000-square-foot Shared Services Building. This services facility was the headquarters or central location of key departments for the county’s and village’s operations. The Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro public adjusting team was chosen to manage the county’s and village’s property damage insurance claims while ensuring that public services continued unhindered. After initial offers from both insurance carriers at much lower levels, AI/BLC was able to negotiate and secure a total recovery amount of $3.2 million dollars.
Wilbert’s, a prominent three-location automotive recycling operation across Western and Central New York, suffered a devastating fire to a new 10,000-square-foot building at its Williamson location. As this building was the center of business for that location, Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro (AI/BLC) immediately established temporary solutions to mitigate the losses and also developed strategies and objectives to make sure Wilbert’s received an optimal insurance settlement.
New Energy Works, a leading timber company in America, suffered winter-related roof collapse to one of its main 15,000-square-foot buildings.
