Building Damage Claims
Seeing your home, business or investment property seriously damaged by fire, flood, storm, or even vehicle collision is traumatic. Not only is your biggest asset at risk but your life is turned upside down and dealing with your insurance company or contractor can seems like a second disaster. Unlike you, they deal with unexpected property damage claims all the time and can forget how hard it is on the victim.
Under the law and insurance policies, the burden is on you to minimize your damages and prove your claim - but the deck is stacked against the average claimant. The insurance damage repair industry has its own vocabulary, processes, and laws, and most homeowners and even many businesses can quickly get overwhelmed. Whether a claim is paid fairly often means the difference between rebuilding your life or business - or suffering financial disaster. Unless you have experience in both restoration construction and property damage insurance policies you are at a serious disadvantage. How will you know if you're being treated fairly?
I can help you even the playing field. With 26 years of direct experience in commercial and insurance claims litigation, including the last 20 as chief legal counsel for a large and busy restoration contractor, I know the law and the industry. I understand insurance property damage coverage, have personally run or managed hundreds of repair projects, and have negotiated claims ranging in size from several hundred dollars to several million. I hold a City of Toledo remodeling contractor’s license and even taught Construction Law and Management in Bowling Green State University’s Construction Management program. I understand how adjusters handle claims and the pressure points to get them to pay fairly.
Don't go it alone on a significant building damage claim. Whether you need full claims representation, or just advice and guidance behind the scenes, let me put my experience to work for you.
