As the pandemic caused notable delay in claim process because the carrier’s adjuster and staff worked remotely, it became clear that we as a Public Adjuster Firm had to be more diligent then ever to get the claim paid accordingly to the time frame in the Policy and State Statue.

The pandemic had caused business income loss more challenging with a Insured covered peril the normal practice for BI documentation is the P&L for the last 6 to 12 months and with Business slow down because of the pandemic we had to get the carrier to review 12 to 24 months of P&L statement to get a true indication of the true Business loss.

For instance, a manufacturing facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth area received its initial claim payment to repair the roof of its facility. The CEO of the company reached out to Mr. Hogan to see how he would be able to help. The D.C Hogan & Associates team thoroughly investigated the site using thermal imaging, collected core samples of the roof system and sent the collected samples for lab tests. Due to this intervention, the client got a complete replacement of the roof system.

With the wealth of knowledge as a claim adjusting firm, D.C Hogan & Associates, Inc has an eye for detail, noticing damage otherwise overlooked by the carrier. A prominent example is a church in Florida that was damaged due to hurricane Michael. The insurance company only paid for a minor repair on the roof. As the pastor and parishioners were doubtful about their insurance claim, they retained D.C Hogan & Associates, Inc services. When the company inspected the loss, they discovered that the unavailability of clay tiles was the primary hindrance to the roof’s repair. D.C Hogan & Associates negotiated with the insurance company and received a complete replacement for the church and the cover of the interior. The original claim payment was $38,275.00, and the firm secured a total settlement of $428,598.00 for the insured.
