Public Adjuster wins 630% insurance claim settlement increase for Key West hotel

South Street Hospitality LLC owns the Seashell Hotel, a quaint lodging for adults and young adults in Downtown Key West. This property, which consists of several buildings of differing construction and historic significance, was significantly damaged by Hurricane Irma. 

The property owners, having had prior experience with Tutwiler and Associates, immediately got in touch with us to handle their claim. Florida Public Adjuster Michael Platts, with over thirty years of property insurance claims experience immediately set forth to establish the available coverages, damages, and costs to restore the landmark to its former glory. 

After submitting a comprehensive and detailed package detailing the loss, and a subsequent protracted fight over policy language and actual damages to the property, Michael was able to effect a payment to the property owners by their insurance company of nearly 630% greater than the carriers initial and inadequate payment of $59,449.

After the resolution of the claim, one of the principals said to Mike, “If one of our properties is damaged again, we’re calling you once more, first thing!” Of course, we hope they never incur another loss, but should the worst happen, we’re glad to be there for our clients, helping them through difficult times and the challenges of insurance claims.
