Recycling Insurance Claims Help
It became clear that I was out of my league. The experience taught me “a wise man knows when another man knows better”. We collected for things that I could not have thought up in my wildest dreams. All of them perfectly appropriate under the terms of my insurance policy, but not things the insurance company adjuster or my broker would have suggested…The best decision I made was to hire a public adjuster. If there is one point that this letter should serve, it is to implore those reading it to put aside their preconceived notions of insurance companies as being their friends and to sit down with a qualified public adjuster and listen… then decide.

You’ve moved from the asset side of your insurance company’s ledger (paying premiums) to the liability side of their ledger (you get paid by them for your damages). Know everything you possibly can about the fine print of your insurance policy before you have any substantive dialogue with them. Know what you are covered for and how. It’s not simple. What you say to your insurance company’s adjuster and how you say it can make a dramatic difference in how much you get paid. The more you know, the better the results you’ll get.
Factors to Consider
When preparing a claim to a recycling facility, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration. To help you navigate the process, we have put together several talking points for you to review. Having a full understanding of each of the below bullet points is crucial to documenting, filing, and successfully settling your insurance claim. If any of these questions give you pause, please feel free to reach out to us for a no-cost discussion about your claim.
- How can you continue to intake new material? Can it be staged elsewhere pending resumption of partial or total operations?
- Hazardous materials recycling. Can anyone else process the material so you can keep your customers? If not, can they be stored pending partial or total resumption of operations?
- Precious metals. How to quantify quantities in the debris.
- What is your broker/agent’s role?
- Will he/she be adjusting the claim?
- How many claims has he/she handled?
- Will his/her role be active or passive?
- When faced with supporting your position or the insurance company’s, where will he/she stand?
