Public Adjuster Recovers $310K after Initial Insurer Offer of $26K for Water Supply Break

Florida is the poster child for winter vacation homes with many homeowners splitting their time between their northern and southern home. But that means a home may be left unattended for 6 months or more. In this claim, the homeowners split their time between New York and Boynton Beach, Florida. They initiated a homeowner’s claim in late July 2017 after receiving notice from a neighbor that water had been pouring out of their house due to a failed refrigerator supply line.  Several days after filing the claim they contacted Tutwiler & Associates for assistance as they were unfamiliar with the property insurance claim process, were worried about receiving a fair settlement and were unable to stay in Florida for the entirety of the claim.
