Your Insurance Settlement Is First
To prevent delay, an accurate understanding of your anticipated insurance settlement is necessary to help move your FEMA grant forward. The two processes take different perspectives on everything from what’s eligible to how it’s quantified. Our disaster recovery experts understand both the FEMA and insurance recovery processes and help you establish a well-documented insurance claim as the basis for your recovery.

When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
