Public Adjuster Negotiates $107,200 Increased Settlement for Storm Claim in New Jersey
+ $107,200 INCREASE
A home on New Jersey’s South Shore suffered extensive storm damage from Superstorm Sandy. The homeowner immediately filed an insurance claim, but had to wait 22 days for an adjuster from the insurance company to inspect the damage. A low settlement offer quickly followed.
According to the insured, the adjuster spent a short time assessing the damage to the home. The adjuster’s settlement offer was $84,700, which the insured knew was not nearly enough to rebuild the home. There was no settlement offer made for the damaged contents.
Upon being hired, our claim team, comprised of a public adjuster and contents specialist, immediately got to work. They revalued every item of damaged personal property, many of which were undervalued and overlooked by the insurance adjuster. A thorough investigation conducted by our public adjuster into the damaged dwelling structure uncovered scope errors and omissions with the insurance adjuster’s estimate.
Our public adjuster negotiated a final and total settlement in the amount of $191,900. This settlement included a $48,000 increase for the dwelling and an additional $57,900 for the damaged contents coverage,which had been neglected by the insurance company’s adjuster.
Often times, insurance companies do not perform thorough assessments of the personal property inventory and damages to a building’s roof, frame and interior. This is a common mistake with home and business claims. It’s your right to receive an accurate and timely settlement that reflects the value of your claim. We can help.
