If your organization or community suffers a structural collapse to any of its facilities, the full damage can be difficult to identify. Your recovery can depend on how you assess and report the damage. Our team of experts help you obtain the maximum claim recovery so you can get back on your feet sooner.
Coverage for collapse damage can be denied by your insurance company if you do not document and prove your loss properly.
If your organization or community’s infrastructure is interrupted by a collapse, you will not only face the challenges of securing everyone’s safety and protecting the rest of your property. You will now also have to secure the necessary funding for your recovery. Will it come from your insurance policy? If so, will it be enough to fully recover? The effect of any unrecoverable monies can be an immobilizing blow to your organization or community.

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 grateful
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.
