Pittsburgh Claim Adjuster’s Technology and Perseverance Wins the Day in Settling an Apartment Fire Insurance Claim

Here’s an enlightening insurance claim success story from our valued Pittsburgh Adjuster, Mr. Zach Flora. Statistics show that 5% of structural fires or one in twenty are caused by cigarettes. On the late morning of May 21, 2020, an apartment landlord in the Pittsburgh area found out what it was like to become part of that statistic.

Pittsburgh Apartment Owner Receives Low-Ball Repair Estimate for Fire Damage
