Public Adjusters for Water Damage

Throughout the year, frozen pipes or broken pipes can cause immediate and long-term water damage to your home and the health of your family. Globe Midwest public adjusters are here as your policyholder advocates to handle every part of the claim process in dealing with your insurance company to get you the optimum amount from your claim.

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

Within moments of a pipe bursting, the ceilings, walls, and floors of your home, along with expensive electrical systems, can be significantly damaged. Also, the moisture from this water damage can lead to mold growth, making your home unsafe. The immediate need to clean up and control as much damage as possible may delay you in the beginning, but you still need to organize a plan for handling your water damage claim quickly, since it will be vital to your recovery.

It’s hard to know who to trust when you’re thrown into the chaos of a broken pipe and a water damage insurance claim. Also, you may have a bad feeling from your insurance company’s inquiry into exactly how and when your damage occurred.

Globe Midwest public adjusters specialize in identifying even the most hidden damage caused by broken or burst pipes — and in getting you 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. Our team knows the process, the policies, the players, the language, and how to interpret and apply your homeowners insurance coverages to your greatest advantage.
