Public Adjusters for Tornado and Windstorm Damage

In the aftermath of a tornado, amidst a flurry of outside influence on the best way to file a homeowners insurance claim, our Globe Midwest public adjusters can be there to advocate on your behalf as we lift the burden of managing your claim so you can recover sooner.

By trusting our proven tornado damage claim capabilities to protect your interests, you can focus on the recovery of your home.

A tornado can wreak havoc on your home, puncturing roofs and walls, breaking windows, and tearing gas and water lines. Fires can erupt from damaged gas and electrical lines, while your home can also sustain significant water damage from an accompanying storm. Even worse, a tornado can leave your family without a home. Does your homeowners insurance policy fully cover such devastation?

It’s hard to know who to trust when you’re thrown into the chaos of a tornado damage insurance claim. People may stream in from every direction, all pushing to sell you something — restoration firms, board-up companies, building estimators, contractors, landscapers, carpet salesmen — the push goes on. Globe Midwest public adjusters push to actually get you something: every dollar you’re entitled to under the terms of your homeowners insurance policy. We have nearly a century-long reputation as property insurance claims experts throughout Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the greater Midwest. We assist with a thorough inventory of your valuable contents and negotiate with your insurance company to get you the maximum amount for your recovery and the future of your family.
