With offices located in New York, Maine, and Pennsylvania, the public adjusters at Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro are very familiar with snow and ice commercial damage claims. Winter storms can bring several feet of heavy wet snow, causing even the sturdiest roofs to collapse. As large commercial buildings often have flat roofs, they tend to be more susceptible to collapse than smaller structures with pitched roofs, thereby increasing their chances of suffering damage after a winter storm.

Depending on the terms of your insurance policy, after a winter storm your business may be eligible to file a claim under some or all of the following coverage provisions:

  • Property Damage (Buildings, contents, etc.)
  • Business Interruption and Extra Expense, directly resulting from the property damage
  • Business Interruption, caused by property damage at customers’ and/or suppliers’ locations.

Our public adjusters can help by:

  • Winter Storm Commercial Insurance Claim Adjusters International Basloe Levin & CuccaroFully reviewing your insurance coverage;
  • Determining policy compliance issues;
  • Developing a claim management strategy;
  • Completing detailed valuations of building, equipment and inventory losses;
  • Formulating business interruption models;
  • Assembling comprehensive claim presentations with expert reports; and
  • Expediting the insurance claims entire process.

Our public adjusters work exclusively for the policyholder—not the insurance company—enabling us to act in your best interest. As your advocate, we ensure that both you and your business’ winter storm damage claim are treated fairly by the insurance company.
