Industry Specific Services Manufacturing

It has been almost a year since the fire which completely destroyed one of our processing plants. ...I had no idea that the documentation of our claim would become as extensive as it did. Your staff worked tirelessly to quantify the claim. I am convinced that every possible element of our loss was maximized to the extent provided for in our coverage. ...You and your staff are true professionals, and the quality and detail of your work is very impressive.

Insurance Claim Services For Manufacturers

When you’ve worked hard to grow your manufacturing business, suffering insured property damage shouldn’t threaten your future. Your commercial property insurance claim is supposed to make you whole — and our public insurance adjusters make sure no one stands in the way of your maximum financial recovery.

If you’ve suffered commercial property damage from fire, water, wind or another disastrous event, you do NOT have to deal with commercial insurance claim delays, denials, or low-ball offers.

Call in the public adjusters at Globe Midwest Adjusters International. We have a 94-year track record of successfully helping policyholders collect every dollar they’re entitled to under the terms of their commercial property insurance.

Trusting your insurance company to pay you everything you’re entitled to for your commercial property insurance claim is like trusting the IRS to do your taxes. It’s not a risk you have to take.

Much like you’d consult a CPA for complex tax matters, or an attorney for complex legal matters, our public insurance adjusters are licensed professionals who work exclusively for you when you need the highest payout for your insurance claim settlement.

If you’re being treated unfairly settling your commercial property insurance claim, Globe Midwest Adjusters International tips the scale back in your favor.

Your insurance company has its own claims adjuster, who represents the insurance company’s interest in your claim. When you need someone to represent your interests in a manufacturing-related property insurance claim, never settle for less than Globe Midwest.

Factors To Consider

Make sure you fully understand the meaning of each of the following before you move forward. Feel free to reach out to us for a no-cost discussion about your claim.
  • Insurance companies frequently use independent building and equipment consultants to prepare bids.
    • Who are these consultants?
    • Who are they working for?
    • Do they only work for insurance companies? Why should this be a red flag?
  • Temporary production in other owned or non-owned locations? What happens at the end of your claim?
  • Increased efficiency and productivity with new equipment. Does the insurance company get a “credit?”
  • How does the smoke and the water used to fight the fire affect your machinery? Your computers and other electronics?
  • Warranties and Protective Safeguard Requirements.
    • What do they mean?
    • What if you are not in full compliance?
    • Can you still collect?
  • What are extra expenses? What can be included?
  • Valuation of raw materials. Work in progress. Finished goods. Methodologies employed.
  • Can you continue to pay your employees?
    • “Ordinary” employees versus “key” employees. How do they get classified? What is covered?

  • Is there coinsurance in your policy?
    • If there is, what does it mean?
    • If there is, did your insurance company’s adjuster tell you? If not, why not?
    • How is coinsurance calculated on replacement cost? On actual cash value?
    • Properly managing coinsurance can prevent disaster. Not properly managing coinsurance can put you out of business!
  • Increased efficiency and productivity with new equipment. Does the insurance company get a “credit?”
  • Code Upgrade coverage is very important when rebuilding after a fire.
    • How does your coverage address codes?
    • If your coverage is limited, is there anything you can do about it?
  • What happens when the insurance company engages a forensic accountant?
    • What is his/her role?
    • Why can’t your accountant just prepare your claim?
    • What is the harm in sharing your financial statements?
    • Are you required to produce your tax returns?
    • Can you recast your financial statements? If so, why?
  • How do you project lost sales? What about new products? Sales declines?
