Insurance Carrier Offers Spot Repairs for Condominium: Premier Claims Settled at $2.3M
Legends of St. John Condos
Prior to our involvement, the insurance carrier was only willing to cover the bare minimum for patchwork repairs on the roof. We conducted a thorough inspection and presented a compelling case to the insurer, complete with evidence to support a more comprehensive settlement. This included code upgrades, material matching, overhead & profit, and residential supervision costs. Initially, the insurance carrier offered a more reasonable estimate of $1,820,000, but later withdrew it, attempting to reduce the settlement. Undeterred, we fortified our claim with exhaustive documentation and expert legal counsel, ultimately securing a final settlement of $2,275,000.
In the wake of Hurricane Ian, this five-building complex suffered from both roof damage and first-floor flooding. Despite the insurance carrier’s attempts to stall the process by repeatedly reassigning the claim, our team remained steadfast. We put together irrefutable estimates that clearly demonstrated that the policy limits had been met. Taking into account the widespread damage, we guided residents through their individual claims and managed the inspections and repairs for each unit. In the end, we achieved full coverage up to the policy limits for every building in the association and extended free consultation services to residents to aid in their recovery.
Premier Claims Secures $13.95M After Hurricane Ian

Our team stepped in when the policyholder faced challenges securing a fair settlement, largely due to an insurance policy that fell short in covering the asset. Despite the policy’s limitations and the insurance carrier’s attempts to underpay significant parts of the claim, we remained undeterred- even when the carrier employed delay tactics by bringing in three new adjusters and two engineers to reassess the damage from Hurricane Ian. Our expertise and persistence led to a 520% increase in the settlement, totaling $13,955,000. Beyond that, we offered invaluable advice to the policyholder on securing a more robust insurance policy for future protection.

To speed up the process, we transparently shared all our findings with the insurance carrier, who initially estimated the claim at $1,892,000 based on our information. Not satisfied, we swiftly countered with precise costs for materials and labor, successfully elevating the settlement to an impressive $2,058,000—all in under 4 months.

Our team carried out day and night inspections to accurately assess the full scope of damage to the various buildings on the property. During negotiations, we caught the insurance carrier using flawed measurements based on satellite imagery that failed to account for elevation changes. We didn’t stop there; we also presented a comprehensive plan outlining the necessary materials and procedures for proper insulation and repairs, backed by current market rates for materials and labor. The result? A successful settlement that covered full replacements for all metal roofs, and materials, and even included overhead and profit.
Thorough Investigation Turns $1.9M into a $5.9M Claim Settlement
Sanoh America Distribution Facility
Hail & Wind Damage | May 2022
The expansive 223,000 square-foot distribution facility experienced significant hail and wind damage, resulting in a small portion collapse. The insurance carrier enlisted an engineer to refute the more extensive hail damage, dismissing it as merely cosmetic and initially only approved repairs for the collapsed section. At this time, our team was brought on and we began to gather evidence from comprehensive on-site investigations, demonstrating the long-term repercussions of neglecting the full extent of the damage. Within six months, these efforts resulted in a reversal of decision to a full roof replacement. In addition, we were able to show historical storm activity that had impacted the building within the policy terms for more accurate dates of loss, as well as reimbursement for business interruption and loss of contents. Thanks to our diligent efforts, we successfully secured an additional $3.9 million in claim settlements.
Self-Storage Claim Initially Denied: Premier Claims $1.25M Settlement for Full Replacement

After the insurance company denied the initial claim, they were reluctant to conduct an on-site joint inspection, basing their decision on an incomplete assessment by an independent adjuster. Recognizing the oversight, we presented compelling evidence and our own detailed estimate to the insurance carrier. This led to an on-site joint inspection and a complete turnaround. We successfully negotiated full replacements for roofs and doors across all structures, and even secured private security to safeguard patrons’ belongings during the construction phase.
