If you notice cracks in your flooring, walls, stairs, or building foundation, you may be looking at the beginning signs of sinkhole damage in your property. The cracks and structural damages that occur in the visible areas of the property are often a result of sinkhole activity beneath the building. If the damage is indeed caused by a sinkhole, you can file for damages from your insurance company. Call LMR Public Adjusters, we can help!
Sinkhole Damage Public Adjusters
Although most insurance companies are required by law to cover sinkhole damage, many just flat-out refuse to pay. They may cite that the damage was caused by something other than a sinkhole in order to avoid paying. Even if the insurance company acknowledges the claim and agrees that the proximate cause of the damage was a sinkhole, it will probably try to get away with paying far less than what you need to compensate for the actual damage. Your insurance company may also recommend the cheapest – and consequently the least effective – repair.
In a situation like this, you need the help of a really excellent Public Adjuster. LMR Public Adjusters have a team of highly qualified claims adjusters who will investigate and identify the exact reason of damage to your property and assess the true extent of the damage caused. We make sure to estimate the actual damages by taking into consideration factors such as depreciation, actual cash value, replacement costs, etc., which may be overlooked – or conveniently neglected – by insurance companies.
