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.

Even worse, a tornado can leave your family without a home.

We 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.

Homeowners We Have Helped

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.
