This may be your first and only time filing a major commercial property damage claim. It’s an unfamiliar process full of complex obligations and timelines — one misstep or delay can lead to a lesser claim settlement or outright claim rejection.
During this, the insurance company has its own adjusters and outside experts working on its behalf who specialize in property damage claims. That’s why our Public Adjusters are licensed by the state of Michigan to exclusively represent you, the policyholder.
We level the playing field, saving you time and sanity as we handle your claim and secure a fair and just settlement to help your business and livelihood.
Examples of Lansing, MI Property Damage Claims
Commercial Property Fires
Commercial fire damage includes damage to the physical structure — like smoke damage and roof collapse — business interruption, and loss of income.
Over 200 businesses are located in Lansing’s flood plain. Apart from possible flooding of the Grand River, Red Cedar River, or other waterways, melting snow and heavy rain can cause flood damage, too.
COVID-19 has contributed to a rise in vacant properties in 2020. Unattended properties and facilities in Lansing can fall victim to vandalism and theft. Our insurance claim experts help you properly document vandalism damage and file a claim.
Storm Damage and Flooding
Severe thunderstorms and derechos can cause significant damage to properties and infrastructure. Meanwhile, a Michigan winter storm can freeze pipes and cause burst pipe water damage and mold growth within your building or facility. A licensed public adjuster will know how to get insurance to pay for water damage or other damage through a fair settlement according to your coverage.
What Is a Public Adjuster and Why Should I Have One for My Claim?
A public adjuster — also known as a private adjuster — is a licensed property damage insurance claim expert who only represents you, the policyholder.
Most likely, you haven’t had to deal with the insurance claim process hundreds of times — if at all! But the insurance company has, and it will have an experienced claims division and outside experts who handle property insurance claims every day to protect the company’s interests.
Public adjusters have just as much experience (if not more) in property insurance claims. And reputable public adjusting firms will utilize their entire team of adjusters, forensic accountants, inventory specialists, and building estimators to level the playing field for you and help secure a fair and just settlement.
