Insurance Claims for Fire Damage
According to the National Fire Protection Association, business owners and organizations suffer $2.3 billion in commercial and industrial direct property loss each year.
Fire claims are common and complex because they spark different types of damages. The damage inflicted upon buildings, facilities, and infrastructure can interrupt lives and livelihoods immeasurably, striking a devastating blow to your organization or community. You will not only face the challenges to minimize the damage and secure everyone’s safety. You will now also have to secure the necessary funding for your recovery. Will it only come from your insurance policy? If so, will it be enough to fully recover?
Our public insurance adjusters have expertly managed insurance claims for every type of disaster at the regional, state, and national levels. With fire claims, we can efficiently organize our team of adjusters, estimators, and inventory specialists to evaluate and document your loss in its entirety. We are called upon by communities, non-profits, and government organizations for our unique ability to mobilize a top team of professionals who have the unmatched experience and comprehensive understanding of the laws, regulations, and policies involving disaster recovery. This enables us to consistently coordinate and obtain the maximum reimbursement for our clients so that they may recover. Our expertise and successful history in getting fair settlements has made us the public adjusters Colorado organizations and communities trust most for fire damage insurance claims. Our CO adjusters will help you prepare and file a claim to get you more, sooner.
What To Focus On After Fire Damage
Why should the county, city, town, or district optimize its claim?
Do we have a commitment to taxpayers to recover the most possible?
What if the insurance company engages a building consultant?
What is my agent/broker’s role?
Will my code upgrade coverage address all my code related issues? ADA, fire codes, etc.?
Is there coinsurance in my policy?
Do we need to issue an RFP in order to engage your services?
Who in our county, city, town, or district will be involved in making the decision to hire us?
Is your claim a result of an event that may be funded by FEMA? If so, it is your obligation to first maximize your insurance settlement to satisfy FEMA’s eligibility requirements.
Why can’t we do it ourselves?
What emergency facilities are necessary to continue operations?
Can temporary facilities still be used at the end of the claim and be considered permanent? If so, how?
How do existing plans for renovations or enhancements affect my claim?
What building codes and regulations must be considered in the reconstruction?
How do bond cycles affect the full replacement cost holdback provisions of a policy?

Super Typhoon Paka, as the storm came to be called, was a 12-hour session of destruction for the island of Guam. Stirring up winds in excess of 200 miles per hour, the tropical cyclone tossed buildings, planes and ships across the island like discarded toys. Among these was the headquarters of Continental Micronesia, a subsidiary of Continental Airlines. The main offices, the marketing buildings and the planes were damaged by the powerful typhoon.
