House fires are the most common disaster nationwide and account for more deaths than all natural disasters combined. According to the American Red Cross website, on average there is a house fire death every two and a half hours in the United States. Although Texas residents are slightly less likely to die in a fire than the general population of the United States, fires still happen in our state.
According to the U.S. Fire Association, most fires in residential buildings, which result in multiple deaths, happen between 1 and 5 a.m. while people are generally sleeping. 91percent of the time, the damage extends beyond just one room. When there are multiple deaths, the damage is also generally more extensive, and the number of injuries tends to be higher than it is when there is only a single fatality, or there are no deaths caused by the fire. Because of this, it is especially important to consult a private insurance adjuster if you have been involved in a fire resulting in multiple deaths.
At Timmons Consulting Group, we understand fire damage can cause a financial burden to your family. We encourage you to contact us early on so we can get you the best final settlement. Many people are under the impression that they should wait to consult a private insurance adjuster until the investigation is complete. Consulting us early on, though, will help us to get you the maximum benefit. Your insurance company’s adjuster works for the company, so their goal is to walk away paying you the lowest amount possible.
We work for you, so we want you to walk away satisfied with the settlement. On average, we have helped customers get 30 to 40 percent more than the insurance company’s suggested settlement. No matter the reason behind your claim, be sure to consult us before settling for what your insurance company is offering you. Remember, an insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and works to protect their interest, not yours. We are noted for speeding up the slow pace of settlement claims, and while we may not work miracles, we will get you the payout you deserve from your insurance company. Knowing that, just might give you peace of mind to know that someone is looking out for you and your best interest.
