Mesa, AZ, February 2nd, 2015 -- Recently, a homeowner in the Phoenix metropolitan area discovered that water from a broken pipe had damaged their wood floor. The property owner immediately called their homeowner’s insurance company and reported the incident. A short time later, a representative of the insurance provider paid them a visit and determined that there was $2,354 worth of damage and that after the homeowner’s insurance deductible was met, the homeowner would receive a check for $1,354.
The homeowner knew that this small amount would not fix the damaged floor and that the settlement amount could not be accurate. Feeling unsure of how to challenge the large insurance company’s offer, they called a public adjuster.
A representative from Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters met with the homeowner and reviewed the scope of repairs offered by the insurance company. The flooring that was used to determine the replacement value was found to be inaccurate and the full scope of repairs was far from sufficient. Hudson Douglas presented their findings to the insurance company who changed their initial $2,354 settlement offer to over $32,897.
