Need Help With Your Water Damage Claim?

Water Damage can cause extensive damage to your home, business or complex. Making sure you collect for every item is critical, as you rely on this money to put your home, business, or complex back to pre-loss condition.

There are many causes of Water Damage:

  • A Pipe burst: Usually occurs in the wall or underground
  • A Pipe leak: Usually occurs under a sink
  • An A/C leak: Usually caused from overflowing drip pans or leaky hoses
  • A Hose leak: Usually occurs from a ruptured dishwasher hose, washing machine hose, or refrigerator line
  • A sewer line backup: Usually resulting in overflowing water and/or waste into the home or business
  • A Hot Water Heater leak: This is a common occurrence as old water heaters tend to rust and leak from the bottom of the unit
  • Roof Leak: Roof leaks are very common in South California, but many times the roof itself may not be covered. However, what may be covered is the damage that occurs inside the home or business once the water gets inside

How we will help:

  1. If you haven’t reported your claim, we will do so on your behalf. If you have reported your claim, we will notify your carrier that our adjusters have been assigned to your claim, and that they are to deal directly with us from this point forward.
  2. We will schedule a meeting with the Insurance Company’s adjuster to meet us at the property to review the loss. If the adjuster has already been there, we will create our own estimate of damages, and ask the adjuster to re-visit the property to discuss the loss with us.
  3. After meeting at the property and providing OUR estimate to the insurance adjuster, we will continue to negotiate until we have reached the best possible settlement. This may require several more visits, and possibly performing an appraisal using a neutral umpire. We will handle any additional meetings, and you are NOT required to be present.
  4. Once we negotiate the best possible settlement, we will review the settlement offer with you, for your approval.
  5. If you are displaced, or if have a loss of business revenue, we can even help you with the reimbursement (if you have the additional coverage).

It’s important to know that insurance companies are real businesses, with real profits and losses.

We represent YOU; the policyholder, and we may see it necessary to replace your items as opposed to cleaning or repairing. Let Shield Public Adjusters represent you. “We’re YOUR Insurance Adjuster”!
