Your Insurance Carrier's Adjuster that comes to see you after the claim will often tell you to be patient. It's important understand that when you are in the middle of of an insurance loss some time will transpire while getting everything in order to get you back in your property. At the same time it is important understand that many of the delays that your insurance carrier may put you through are not necessarily are proper.

Maximizing the Size of Your Insurance Claim -

Maximizing the size of your insurance claim may mean properly valuing  or discovering the depth of the actual damage.

"Maximizing the size of your insurance claim is more of a science project than anything else.  We prove facts, and present them in a way the Insurance company will understand." - Marc Lancaric - Public Adjuster, President of Global Patriot Adjusters, LLC

Yesterday we met with an insurance adjuster for a claim in Nashua, NH. The adjuster sized the claim at $23,500.  We validated our estimate at $41,000 and settled the claim. That defines Maximizing the Size of Your Insurance Claim.

Earlier in the week were working on a Pipe Break claim in Hartford, CT. The Owner thought the claim was going to cost about $43,000 to repair due to a contractor visiting the property who "eye-balled" the estimated cost.    We produced a line by line estimate of the damage to the property to justify the entire claim. The actual claim value was $91,5000.

Insurance Policy Review -New Years Resolution

We encourage owners to have an insurance policy review bi-annually to assure conditions do not change that could cost at the time of insurance covered damage.

Talk to your insurance broker and ask for an insurance policy review to include: 

  • Do I have enough coverage on my building for all potential perils?
  • Do I have enough coverage for my contents?
  • Do I have enough coverage for loss of use or additional living expenses if I must be away from the property?
  • Can I get a reduction in my cost of insurance by doing something with my home, windows, structural, or security system?
  • How much does the maximum for sewer backup coverage?
  • Check your deductibles, make certain they are not so high you cannot afford them.
  • Make certain all the buildings on your property are covered.
  • Make certain you are covered for specific high value items in your home; Antiques, Fine Art, Jewelry, etc.

This entire process will not take long, and will assure you that a loss at your home or business does not become a loss to you personally. Insurance carriers deny claims, Global Patriot Adjusters, as your Public Adjuster fights these denials with great success. Our ability to settle insurance claims is enhanced when overages are appropriate for the eventual loss situation.

Ice Dam Insurance Claims - Public Adjuster

Global Patriot Adjusters, LLC handles hundreds of Ice Dam Insurance Claims every year. These are some of the most tedious claims to prove out because the damage is often layers deep in the roofing then building structure. We have handle most of these claims in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, and New York

Marc Lancaric - Public Adjuster says "Insurance Companies Deny Ice Dam Claims with a bunch of excuses we have learned to overcome!"

Ice dams on roofs form when accumulated snow on a sloping roof melts and flows down the roof, under the insulating blanket of snow, until it reaches below freezing temperature air, typically at the eaves. When the melt water reaches the freezing air, ice accumulates, forming a dam, and snow that melts later cannot drain properly through the dam.

Smoke Damage Insurance Claims

Smoke Damage Insurance Claims Why You May Need a Public Adjuster

Marc Lancaric, public adjuster, was at a New Hampshire apartment building where a fire had occurred recently. The owner explained that the insurance carrier had said, “We won't be covering smoke damage beyond the neighboring apartment, this just wasn't much more than a kitchen fire.”

Marc Lancaric, now the owner's Public Adjuster responded “This is a smoke damage insurance claim as much as a fire claim, as per the policy, the insurance carrier is responsible to properly investigate and pay for actual damages, including smoke contamination throughout a property.”

Insurance carriers will commonly quickly dismiss the smoke damage caused by even a small fire in homes and businesses. Smoke is one of the strongest and penetrating in insurance losses. Smoke smell can overtake neighboring rooms, attics, basements, and wall cavities which span a building.

Interview: Marc Lancaric, Public Adjuster & President of Global Patriot Adjusters

What States do you operate in?

I work in New HampshireMassachusettsRhode IslandVermontMaineConnecticutNew YorkLouisianaGeorgiaFlorida.

What prompted me to be a public adjuster?

In 2009 we had a claim at our house and I could not believe how we were handled by our insurance company. That is when I started looking for help and found a public adjuster to help us through the process. After taking with our public adjuster She explained to me that through the experience of my background in construction this would be a perfect fit for me.

Why do Residential and Commercial property owners contact you for public adjusting services?

We are contacted by those clients as they find out fast that an insurance claim is a full-time job. The complexity of a claim is a process that you don’t want to undertake on your own. We make the life of the Insured a lots less stressful through our approach.

We get the client back to pre-loss condition faster.

How long does the process usually take?

That is a great question. There is no true answer to that question as it depends on the complexity of the loss. It can take a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
