Policyholder Asks Public Adjuster to Take a Closer Look at Their Pittsburgh Water Damage Claim

On August 25th a Pittsburgh family of 3 were away enjoying a fun filled family vacation when they received a call from a neighbor that quickly turned their sunshine to clouds. The neighbor called with the horrible news that their garage door was mysteriously open and water was pouring out onto the driveway. At this point panic had sunk in as they had no idea what they were going find when they returned home. The family decided it would be best to call their insurance agent, report the claim and ask for advice to see if they were covered. The agent quickly assured them that they were going to be OK, reported the claim for them and had an insurance company preferred restoration contractor scheduled to mitigate the water damage. Following the phone call with their agent they packed their belongings and knew that it was time to head home to deal with the unfortunate accident. What transpired is a lesson that can benefit all policyholders. Sometimes it pays to have an independent professional look at your claim.

Claims Adjuster Mike Stabile Negotiates 429% Insurance Claim Settlement Increase on Hurricane Matthew Claim

Claims Adjuster Mike Stabile Negotiates 429% Insurance Claim Settlement Increase on Hurricane Matthew Claim

When Hurricane Matthew worked its way north in the Atlantic barely off of the east coast of Florida in September of 2016, many homes and businesses were damaged by wind, rain and flood waters. In a catastrophic event, many homeowners are not provided with an in-depth investigation by their insurance company claims adjuster. Instead, the insurance company adjusters jump from home to home missing many critical and costly damages. As such, the actual scope of loss and damages is not effectively addressed leaving homeowners with nowhere near the funds they will need to pay for the repairs necessary to restore their home to its former beauty. In fact, there are frequently times that major structural damages and costly items such as building code upgrades go unaddressed. Such is the case with this homeowner in the Daytona area. After realizing they would not have enough money to repair their home and more importantly that their home was unsafe to live in due to structural damages to the roof, the homeowner retained the services of public adjuster Mike Stabile. He quickly identified damages supposedly missed by the insurance company adjuster and resubmitted the claim.  Through Mike’s diligence, attention to detail and negotiation skills, he was able to recover all the funds necessary for the homeowner to fully restore their home.

Pittsburgh Apartment Owner Receives Low-Ball Repair Estimate For Fire Damage

Pittsburgh Apartment Owner Receives Low-Ball Repair Estimate For Fire Damage

A real estate owner of multiple properties experienced a 3 alarm fire at one of their apartment buildings located in the Hill District area of Pittsburgh on November 2016.  The building suffered significant fire, water and smoke damage. Upon reporting the loss to its insurance carrier, multiple adjusters were sent out to inspect the loss and the insurance company immediately assigned an outside company specializing in large losses to handle the claim.  This adjuster prepared a repair estimate that (in the opinion of the apartment owner) did not cover the cost to cover the value of the building and the hidden structural damages that were apparent. It became obvious that the repair estimate ignored parts of the building not directly affected by the fire, but were still subjected to massive amounts of smoke and water damage.
