Public Adjusters for Commercial Wildfire Damage

Property claims for wildfire damage can be managed when working together with our public adjusters. As your insurance company arrives with its team, it is important to have professionals on your side to develop a claim strategy to get your business back on its feet sooner.

Our experts move efficiently to evaluate and document the full scope of your damages and negotiate a maximum claim settlement to get you up and running.

If your commercial property is damaged in a wildfire, we understand your initial focus is on protecting your employees, operations, and customers. That alone can be a full-time job, as can be the next step of handling your commercial property insurance. When it is time to file a claim, your insurance company will provide its own adjuster to negotiate your property damage settlement. Who’s looking out for you?

Our team of public adjusters will work on your behalf in the insurance claim process. As your trusted advisors, we are fluent with insurance policy terms and conditions. We will evaluate and document your property’s wildfire damage in full detail to negotiate with your insurance company for a maximum claim amount so you can get back to business sooner.

    Testimonials

    From the onset of our claim it was very obvious the Insurance Company's adjusters were minimizing our recovery and not properly assessing the damage of our custom home, which was totally destroyed as a result of the forest fire. You and your team of experts properly assessed the damage and submitted the claim reflecting the proper costs and damages and successfully negotiated a fair and equitable settlement for us... had we not engaged your services, the Insurance Company would have most probably only paid less than half of what your firm recovered on our behalf.

    The insurance company tried to penalize us for doing everything in our power to mitigate our damages. The [insurance company’s adjuster] was pleasant at first, but was very schooled and experienced in doing his job as he is tasked to do: to minimize the claim throughout the process...Fortunately, your firm succeeded on negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement with experience and tools that we do not have at our disposal...We appreciate the policy knowledge, detailed analysis and information that you provided us with which allowed us to make important business decisions relating to which path we wanted to take with our claim. We certainly did not realize the finesse, skill, and strategy necessary in the claims process to lead to such a successful resolution...Most importantly, it does come down to dollars in the end...You were able to successfully negotiate a settlement that was hundreds of thousands of dollars more than the insurance company initially offered.

  • Case Studies

    For decades, L’Auberge Chez François has been one of the leading restaurants in the metro Washington, D.C., area. Known for its exceptional French cuisine and impressive service, the restaurant is a longtime favorite of Washingtonians celebrating anniversaries, birthdays or other special occasions.

    A magnitude 6.8 earthquake, called Nisqually in seismic circles, rocked Seattle, Washington, in 2001 and severely damaged the Starbucks corporate headquarters building.

    Super Typhoon Paka, as the storm came to be called, was a 12-hour session of destruction for the island of Guam. Stirring up winds in excess of 200 miles per hour, the tropical cyclone tossed buildings, planes and ships across the island like discarded toys. Among these was the headquarters of Continental Micronesia, a subsidiary of Continental Airlines. The main offices, the marketing buildings and the planes were damaged by the powerful typhoon.
