National Lloyds Insurance Co and Compass Adjusting Services

According to the charge of the court, filed Wednesday, jurors answered “no” when asked if National Lloyds failed to comply with the terms of the insurance policy issued to Thibodeaux.

The jury further found that both National Lloyds and Compass Adjusting Services, the company that adjusted Thibodeaux’s claim, did not:

– Misrepresent the coverage of the policy;

– Fail to attempt in good faith to effectuate a prompt and fair settlement;

– Fail to provide Thibodeaux a reasonable explanation of the legal basis in the policy for the insurer’s denial of the claim;

– Fail to affirm or deny coverage within a reasonable time; and

– Refuse to pay a claim without conducting a reasonable investigation.

Another Blow to Professional Adjusting

Xactware and ServiceMaster have teamed up to offer insurance carriers a contents estimating service.  Now the carriers are using restoration contractors to handle contents claims.  Pretty soon there will be nothing for property adjusters to do except review and pay contractor invoices.

Stress and Mental Health of Adjusters

Does anyone know of mental health services needed by or provided to claims adjusters suffering from stress related symptoms after a severe cat? I am completing my grad degree, and this is the topic for my reserach paper. I am also an adjuster who has been there and done that.

Does it appear to be a lot of work from this storm? Before the storm my email and phone were busy. It seems to have gotten pretty quiet.
