Claims Evaluator…Got one?

» Posted by on Mar 12, 2015 in Blog, Featured, News | 0 comments

Is your insurance company’s offer less than you need to cover your losses? Maybe it’s time to get your own evaluation?

Did you know that there is someone out there that can help you with the confusing claims documentation and get you the money you deserve?  This is a niche specialty and there aren’t many people that can navigate the language and fight for you.  The job requires unique qualifications and an acute attention to detail…the itemized forms require a breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise and the price breakdown language is often overwhelming to not just the property owner but also to most contractors and professionals in the construction industry! Just take a look at this example below! It offers just one small piece of what this multi-page document looks like:

how to manage your insurance claims

When you begin making your insurance claim, the process seems simple enough. You call your insurance company and they send an adjuster out to take an inventory of the loss.  After that, you receive a detailed report from the insurance company outlining the work that needs to be done, and what they say it should cost.  This is the moment where you decide if you want to negotiate the amount offered to you or if you just want to move forward and sign it. It is at this time you should contact someone to look over the report.  This is where Craig DiPetrillo steps in. He can then assess whether or not you are potentially entitled to more than your insurance company is offering!

Craig, has experience in the industry and will understand your contract and the company’s responsibilities right down to the fine print.  He will work to get you the money you truly need, not just what the insurance company says you should get. To help make the decision to work with Craig even easier, it only costs you a small percentage of the EXTRA money he is able to negotiate on your behalf. If had can’t increase the claim (a very rare occurrence) they don’t pay at all!

As an example: A claim payout by your insurance company is OFFERED (not settled and agreed to by you at this point or signed off on in any way) in the amount of $50,000.00.  Craig is requested to review the claim by you. Craig finds that they can raise the your claim offer of settlement to $65,000.00; which could be by way of error by the adjuster or inaccurate data input. From there, Craig is paid 15{48370f4c7e8d05e54649e612d3c42fc7fd435ea0d0341dced4441d5061938337} of the raised portion (only 15{48370f4c7e8d05e54649e612d3c42fc7fd435ea0d0341dced4441d5061938337} of the $15,000.00). If he is not successful in finding an increased opportunity in the settlement offered to you by the insurance company, he is not paid at all.

Utilizing a private evaluator ensures that someone is working on your behalf versus someone working on behalf of the insurance company.
