5 Replies and 3490 Views New site ripping content from CADO    3490  5 Started by  AcceleratedAdjuster Site is www.stormadjuster.com I love free advertising, and since I have an ad here, it is there, along with every other ad on CADO, and that is all the site really consists of. That said, if someone created a site and used only info from my site, I would probably want someone to tell me so that I could decide how to handle it. So, you have been advised.

23 Replies and 5826 Views Portable Adjuster's Field Desk for Sale  5826  23 Started by  Leland
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
This desk is designed for an adjuster between 5'5 and 6'2. Quick, intuitive setup- no more fumbling around with wrenches or dangerous telescopic legs. Made from 100 recycled materials, so you can work knowing you are helping the environment. Experienced adjusters will recognize the desktop is made of water resistant material. Adjuster seat is priced separately. Sorry for putting an ad in the discussion forum, I just don't have any money left after all the motel bills etc.

18 Replies and 3522 Views Search and Rescue Damage  3522  18 Started by  Medulus When handling a fire, it is my experience that insurance carriers generally consider damage done to a structure by the firefighters to be part of the fire loss.  My question is similar, but much more complex.  I would be especially interested in hearing from those who have encountered scenarios like the one I am about to describe while working on Hurricanes Katrina or Sandy.  This is a hypothetical, though I have no doubt that there are many actual claims out there that would fit ...

I have recently gotten my all lines license and looking to get into the business.  My parents drive the mobile offices and my brother has worked a few of the big storms, which is what got me interested in starting myself.   Being that I have no prior experience I was  planning on applying for Allstate or State Farm as I meet all qualifications and like the idea of training, perks and certificates this avenue can bring, however, I have recently learned about RIDE ...

10 Replies and 3200 Views Adjusters copyrighting work  3200  10 Started by  stormy56 Situation: Some adjusters believe that copyrighting their work will ensure payment from the vendor (adjusting firm). Problem: Copyrighting your work discloses confidential claim information to the public.  Yes, the author/adjuster can claim copyright protection if they are the one who physically creates the work. But in the copyright process, you are disclosing information that the Insured and Carrier likely does not want publically disclosed: private photographs of their house; comments ...

12 Replies and 3225 Views Why are Flood Claims so different  3225  12 Started by  paulvon Let me start by saying that I know you have a hard job and I understand that. I am trying to understand why flood claims that have the same damage are treated so different. A row of five town houses are hit by 8 feet of water by Sandy.  The ceiling on the first floor is 8' 3' so it was missed.  The lowest level is slab on grade, it is garage and entrance. Two people who had the same flood coverage structure only are provided with documents showing damage of 6k at one place and 9k at...

35 Replies and 7222 Views NFIP as the underlying  7222  35 Started by  HuskerCat
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
This question is for you that handle flood losses.  I'm now in the boat of handling a couple of 'excess flood' coverage claims.  Having never handled an NFIP loss, I'm not 100 on what may or not be covered.  To explain further, this is a commercial loss.  I've been able to find the personal lines flood coverage form, but not the commercial. And, as an indy inside examiner, you come here or there for the expert answers (um, C Deaton, maybe (see if he's still up, no it's not ...

8 Replies and 3989 Views Adjuster Rights....  3989  8 Started by  AdhusterForAll Hello fellow adjusters, I have been adjusting for over 25 years and have seen a increase in workload without any increase in compensation. Not to mention the complete disregard for you as a person and adjuster. Your safety is being completely disregarded and it's all about profit to the claims company and carriers you are working for. I feel it is time to set some things straight in our industry and stop being taken advantage of by standing together. If you have been in this business for ...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 ... 4 )
So, here we are Sandy is here.  It is really funny how changing jobs from commission to salary changes the perception. When I was a salaried road warrior, I used to beam with joy while seeing those clowns on Weather Channel acting like it's the end of the world. Now, I am a salaried guy working for a large IA firm and I am frowning at the same TV clowns. And out of all possible places, I am  a staff guy in New York.  So, what is the real damages are going to be it is hard to say. ...

2 Replies and 3174 Views For Adjusters with a year or two under their belts  3174  2 Started by  mxr618 I finished my first calendar year with 380 daily claims and 33 flood claims with Pilot / Allstate. I'm home now and things are slow (at the moment) and I don't do 'slow' well. I signed up for AIC training. I've got the time before storm season starts and one can always learn more to be a better adjuster, right If you are a green adjuster like me, I'd say consider spending the $300 or whatever it is and take the AIC training. Here's why: if your adjusting path is similar to mine with simpl...
