Water and Flood Damage – Commercial Insurance Claims
Other than fire, flooding is the most common and widespread disaster. After the water recedes, the adjusting of commercial flood insurance claims can be a very difficult and trying process. The key to a successful recovery of your damages is a full understanding of your flood insurance coverage. Flood damage is not covered by most property insurance policies, but rather through separate endorsements or policies available through the National Flood Insurance Program, making the flood insurance claims process more complex than a standard property damage claim.
For decades, our team has been guiding clients through the complicated process of preparing commercial property insurance claims, and we have unparalleled experience in settling flood losses. With over 40 offices throughout North America and a staff of more than 300 personnel, including licensed adjusters, building estimators, inventory specialists, and accountants, we have the resources and experience to help you get everything you are owed from your flood insurance claim.

At the National Rehabilitation Hospital, the [flood] damage was particularly devastating… None of us had ever had to deal with property damage of such magnitude. Without your involvement we would have made many costly and unnecessary mistakes. By relying on your expertise, from the very beginning we were able to develop a strategy that positioned us well with our insurer and thus we were able to achieve a full and complete settlement of all claims.
