Major property damage and fire insurance claims are a common problem in Michigan. That is why it is critical to be prepared with a reputable licensed public adjuster who will have your back if the need arises.
What Type of Property Damage Is Common in Michigan?
Commercial Property Fires
From hotels to apartment complexes to office buildings, commercial property fires cost billions in damage a year nationwide. Common commercial property fire damage includes:
- Structural damage
- Contents damage
- Business interruption
For the manufacturing, hospitality, and multifamily housing industries, property damage claims are particularly complex. These claims require a licensed public adjusting team, including a forensic accountant to ensure a fair and just settlement that will cover the loss of revenue and extra expense during the disaster recovery process. Business interruption, when not handled properly can lead to an unstable financial future.
Burst Pipe Water Damage
Considering the frigid winter temperatures, frozen pipes are incredibly common. Just an eighth-inch crack in a pipe can dump up to 250 gallons of water on floors and furniture per day.
Michigan flooding is common and, historically, severe flooding has caused an enormous amount of damage to homes and businesses.
Why Do You Need a Michigan Public Adjuster?
Property damage happens. Considering the subzero winter temperatures, unpredictable severe weather events, and quickly rising water levels in recent years — to only name a few factors — more damage is sure to occur.
