Analyze Your Coverage
Reviewing coverage available from a claims perspective is often different that an analysis performed in order to underwrite coverage. It is our duty to review the coverage available and to assist clients in preparing a claim that provides entitlement under the policy or assists in resolution of contested claims. Items such as costs of mitigation, sue and labor, extra debris removal costs, or many other legitimate sources of recovery are frequently overlooked.
Review the Claim
We inspect the property and/or analyze all claim-related documentation to verify the cause of damages and to prepare proper estimates for recovery of entitlement. The initial claim prepared is frequently deficient, then time constraints, a lack of a vested interest to ensure indemnity, or carelessness can result in minimized recovery. Professional review by an experienced expert consultant protects all parties and ensures comprehensive and fair presentation of the claim.
