Water Damage – Residential Insurance Claims
Most commonly caused by broken pipes, faulty plumbing, ice dams, or leaky roofs, water damage can strike your home without warning. Water flow from an undetected leak can quickly cause considerable damage to your possessions and the building’s structural elements.
The hours immediately following the discovery of water damage are critical to both the recovery of your property and to your insurance claim. To file your claim, you need to make certain that all of the damage is properly documented and identified before you can start clearing out the affected property. Since mold and mildew can begin to form within 24-48 hours, starting the cleanup efforts should also be a top priority.
When time is of the essence, it is important to have professionals on your side to ensure that you get what you are due from your insurance settlement. The experts at Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro will be there from the very beginning of the process to help you with both your recovery efforts and with your insurance claim. Our team is well versed in estimating damages, helping you find reputable contractors, and negotiating with insurance companies.
Our public adjusters help you get what you’re entitled to by:
- evaluating your insurance policy to establish the best possible strategy for presenting your claim to the carrier;
- valuing, documenting and substantiating every detail;
- negotiating on your behalf with your insurance company;
- keeping you informed every step of the way; and
- ultimately settling the claim for the maximum amount and with less hassle for you.
Public adjusters work exclusively for you – the policyholder – never for the insurance company.
Who have we helped?
…[Your adjuster] was courteous and helpful in getting us the fair amount that we needed to restore our home to its condition prior to our pipes bursting. We had a very bad experience with our insurance company when they sent their own adjuster out to survey the damage and to tell us how they were unwilling to restore our home to its previous condition. We were appalled that the insurance company really seemed to only want to fix half of the damage. …[Your adjuster] took all of the worry off our shoulders and the stress of trying to make an insurance company agree to do what they should have been willing to do in the first place. …..
Ed and Peggy Czarnecki
The entire team was professional, courteous and efficient. They answered all of our questions and it felt like we were treated ‘like family’, in a time of great need. It was comforting to know that they all were advocating for us to ensure that we were treated fairly and justly by our insurance company.
