Insurance Claim Services For Restaurateurs

When you’ve worked hard to make your restaurant a success, 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.

While Globe Midwest concentrates on the details of your property and business income claim, you are free to devote full-time attention to serving your customers and getting your business back up and running.
