Adjusters International Pacific Northwest Offers Insurance Claim Assistance following Alaska’s 7.0 Earthquake

December 4, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--Adjusters International, the largest public insurance adjusting company in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Hawaii, is prepared to offer its expert claims assistance to business and property owners offers following Friday’s earthquake. Adjusters International has extensive earthquake claim advocacy experience having handled claims as a result of the Nisqually, Loma Prieta, and Northridge Earthquakes. Public insurance adjusters are available to provide insurance policy reviews, and an outline for insurance claim recovery, 24-hours a day. Measured at 7.0 magnitude, with aftershocks of 5.8, this is the largest earthquake to hit Alaska in years, with extensive damage reported. Tsunami warnings are still in effect.

“Insurance companies require victims to prove the dollar amount of their damages and lost income, and this is a real challenge for people who do not regularly practice this complex project,” says Steve Severaid, SPPA, of Adjusters International Pacific Northwest. “We see the trend that proving a claim is becoming much more difficult for policyholders, as insurance companies continue to raise the requirements for proving a claim. And with large-scale disasters, debris removal limits, surge pricing, and delays in getting building permits, are just a few of the special challenges faced by those less experienced. With decades of proven results our insurance claim advocates are in demand.”

Public insurance adjusters from Adjusters International Pacific Northwest routinely achieve better insurance claim payments than policyholders could on their own. The company has helped homeowners and business owners since 1970.
