Commercial Insurance Claims for Builder’s Risk

Our public adjusters are highly experienced in claims involving builder's risk. We guide you through the entire claims recovery process, working to get you the maximum amount for your claim.
When a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. How are you covered?

It may be the largest development project in your company’s history, years in the making. A project that you may have to bet your future on. Then, when a disaster devastates your property and halts construction, the mounting costs from delay can become immeasurable. When your project is under construction, it is vulnerable to a range of natural and man-made disasters that can threaten your investment within moments. How are you covered by a builder’s risk insurance policy?

After a disaster, it isn’t just about the hard costs of repairing and rebuilding what was damaged or lost. It’s about the soft costs, too. Because a disaster has delayed your completion date, the additional expenses and potential business income loss you now have to bear can be extraordinary. Rather than leaving it up to your insurance company to decide what can be covered, our public adjusters have the expertise and proven results to evaluate, document, and present a detailed and comprehensive claim of all losses to prove what you are entitled to under your policy. We work only for you, negotiating and expediting a maximum claim amount so you can recover and get the job done.

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired Adjusters International to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts. ...Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from Adjusters International when we needed it most.

Certainly the tragedy of the World Trade Center explosion will remain etched in our memories forever. We can, however, take pride in the united response of hundreds of people which enabled the complex to be reopened in record time and reconstructed on an expedited schedule. At the same time, as you well know, we were involved in a long, sometimes agonizing process of pursuing settlement activities with insurers. Without your help, and the help of many others the settlement wouldn't have been concluded as successfully as it was. On behalf of The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, I would like to thank you for the expert advice you provided to me and my staff in our effort to bring the World Trade Center explosion insurance claim to closure. Your expertise and insight in this long and arduous negotiation were invaluable.
