SMOKE/FIRE DAMAGE

Fire is one of the most common causes of property damage, resulting in serious problems for homeowners, businesses and commercial property owners. In addition to damage from fire and smoke, there may also be problems related to the process of putting out the fire, such as water or chemicals inside the building, and potential damage to the building’s structure, electrical and heating-cooling systems.

Some of the important actions to do after a fire loss; get an incident report from the fire department, take pictures and do not throw “anything” away. Inspections and investigations are critical to ensure coverage is extended and proper payments are made to you.

We work with all insurance companies to get you the most for your smoke/fire damage insurance claim.

Daniel and team were awesome from start to finish. Daniel worked hard for me, kept me updated, followed through and gave great advice throughout. Would have been a disaster if I tried this claim without RIA. Would recommend 1000%.

I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking reliable and proactive support during their recovery journey. Thank you for your outstanding efforts Mr. Daniel!

I highly recommend Joe Connelly and Daniel Sifrar from Recovery Insurance Adjusters for all of your needs. From start to finish the team was engaged and worked with us to professionally navigate the insurance claim process. The results were incredible and their team managed every item that required attention to achieve the end result. There is no doubt we would not have been able to obtain the great results we have without their knowledge and guidance

Daniel and his team did a remarkable job getting my wife and I the correct coverage we had (per insurance contract) for hail damage to our roof. Initially the insurance company tried to only cover a small portion of the damage caused by the natural disaster until RIA and Daniel got involved! We ended up getting a fair shake and only had to pay for the deductible and associated fees on our roof replacement per RIA’s assistance. Definitely 5 stars for this team!!! Thanks a bunch!!!Shawn and Veronica Hardman

After getting almost burned by St. John’s, RIA stepped in and helped make it right all the way around. I recovered more money than I thought I would plus found something with the ceiling that I would have been second guessing until the next disaster.The work was fast, thorough and well worth any added expense. I’m very pleased with the quality of the work and if, God forbid, I needed their services again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call on them.

Priscilla is extremely knowledgeable and gives clear, actionable recommendations that have helped me with my insurance claim from Hurricane Ian. I'd strongly recommend her to anyone who has a claim with their homeowners policy, especially a complex one involving a hurricane, etc.

Irene Villa was our RIA adjuster for a slab leak that we had on our property. From the very beginning, she completely took over all of our worries and with her “can do” attitude, we knew we were in good hands. Irene grabbed the reins with all of the paperwork, language that I didn’t understand and notarized everything that the insurance company required. We literally gave everything to Irene, all emails and correspondence and we got a really wonderful recovery. We never would have done so well and put back together like we are now. Cannot recommend Irene Villa highly enough… you will not be disappointed!

If you are in need of a public adjuster ask for Irene at RIA. She is so easy to work with, and will fight for you to the end. She will make your terrible situation more bearable. Anytime I didn’t understand something she would personally come to my house to explain. She is such a hard worker, kind, caring and sympathetic to all your needs. Call Irene you won’t be sorry!!

After reaching out to Joe Connelly regarding our claim for Hurricane Ian damage, he would not even talk to me. I live in a Condominium and have been without my home for almost 5 months. You would think that he would have a heart! He stated that he would only speak with board members regarding questions about the claim. The communication with our new board has been scarce as to updated information. Joe's required "letter of representation" was untimely, according to the claims service representative, which consequently held things up. He gave out misleading information about material costs during our association meeting regarding the insurance claim. The information that Joe gave us, during the lengthy zoom meeting, was to recite the policy coverages which we had been given weeks before as if we couldn't read it ourselves. Nothing he said was positive just somewhat of a scare tactic. Obviously, Joe has proven to be unprofessional to me. Best advice is to look elsewhere for friendly, caring and informative service when hiring a public adjuster.

Working with Irene from Recovery Insurance Adjusters was an absolute pleasure. Not only did she advocate for me with kindness and expertise during my time of need when I was getting nowhere with my insurance company, but most importantly she secured the funds I needed to repair my home after the devastating hurricane damage impacted my roof and fence. Her knowledge and attention to detail are truly impressive - her diligence in researching what I was entitled to in reimbursements produced a much larger sum than I could have ever expected. Not only that, but she made sure I had the funds quickly, as if this emergency wasn't trying enough already! I have already recommended her services to many friends, and if you need help dealing with insurance companies or looking to maximize your reimbursements when it comes to damaged home repairs, Irene is who you want on your team.#recoveryinsuranceadjusters #homesecurity

Had water damage in my home. Called my insurance company and they led me to believe I was covered for the damage and sent a remediation team over. Later I received a large bill from the remediation company and my insurance company denied the claim. I contacted RIA (Priscilla) and she came immediately, took charge of things, contacted the insurance company and also a law firm and sent teams over to access and repair the damage, all the while documenting everything. I was out of the loop and Priscilla handled everything. The insurance company then made a reasonable offer for damages and we settled. I later had a leak from a faulty water heater and I called Priscilla immediately who took charge, contacting the insurance company, taking photos and getting the remediation done. I did not deal with the insurance company once and Priscilla settled the claim in a timely matter. I can't say enough about RIA and Priscilla and recommend them highly.

I was referred to RIA and Joe to get an accurate number for repairs to submit to my insurance company that had shorted us an unreasonable amount for hurricane damages. He was extremely professional and down to the detail in his documentation. It provided us really good footing when we eventually went to litigation with the insurance company.He helped represent us in our first meeting with the insurance company before we had to hire a lawyer to go further due to the insurance company's no-show and refusal to award money. Joe always made sure we were in the know of what was going on and what was going to happen.I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Cathleen. Cathleen always called to check up on us during this 2 year process and to update us on what was going on. Always friendly and always caring.Our whole experience with RIA was amazing, especially when you are feeling distraught about damages to your home. I would gladly use their services again should I incur storm damages I need to refute in the future.

Priscilla was our PA and she made every step.of the process simple and seamless. We only ever had to sign papers and return them to her, and we never once had to fight with or make.phone calls to our insurance. I don't know what we would have done without Priscilla handling our claim and being our advocate.10/10 would recommend working with Priscilla if you have an insurance claim that you need help handling!

I highly recommend Joe Connelly and his team. Without their help, we never would have gotten our new roof. Our Insurance Company acknowledged the storm damage and then tried to say the damage was less than our deductible. We called Joe, and with his expertise and help, we were able to get a complete new roof, including skylights and gutters. I always recommend RIA to everyone I know.

Joe Connelly from Recovery Insurance Adjusters and his assistant Cathleen Owen were extremely helpful and successful in obtaining monies from our insurance company to replace our roof after receiving damage from Hurricane Irma. It was a long process but that was because our Insurance Company was uncooperative. I would recommend this company and have already done so.

They took it from there and contacted our insurance company and negotiated with them on our behalf. The process was smooth and the recovery was smooth and the claim paid without any help from us. Thank you Joe Connelly and Recovery Insurance adjusters!

On NYE I found a leak in my kitchen that had been ongoing, I did some research and called RIA the next day. Irene came out 1/2 and did an assessment and took care of literally EVERYTHING. She called in a mold remediation company and dealt with our insurance company for our claim. We gave her receipts and kept in contact and she did as well. The entire process was made so easy because of RIA. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

In the end the insurance company paid the full loss and Recovery was consistent in emphasizing patience. Claim was from Hurricane Irma - so patience was key. Lesson learned that if you want to fight with the insurance company better to have someone like Recovery leading your change.

I would highly recommend Joe and RIA, who represented my Irma related insurance case very effectively. There is no way I could have represented myself and achieved anywhere close to the result that Joe and RIA were able to. Joe understands the details of insurance contracts, the state laws and the ins and outs of the whole adjustment process extremely well. I found communication to be clear and very straightforward, particularly when we reached points where I had a decision to make about which way to proceed. At the same time, I felt Joe was very honest and professional with the insurance carrier, adjusters and other representatives so that we could reach both a good and a fair outcome for both parties.

RIA has an incredibly detail oriented and professional staff. Joe and Irene handled our slab leak claim from the start to the very end, and were able to negotiate an amount above our expectations. Irene was always accessible and returned calls in hours, not days. Do not attempt to handle a claim on your own, use these experts to advocate for your best interests.

We asked Joe Connelly of Recovery Insurance Adjusters to help us out after Irma. We knew we had damage as a tree hit our home. Joe Connelly handled EVERYTHING. He inspected the damage done to our home himself spending hours doing so. He met with the insurance adjusters at our home pointing out damage that Irma had caused that the Insurance Company's adjuster never thought of addressing. Joe made all the phone calls to the insurance company. He was our representative to the insurance company and essentially lifted the chore of dealing with the insurance company off our shoulders. The bottom line is Joe was able to negotiate a fair settlement that was more than twice what the insurance company offered initially and well worth his small fee.I would strongly recommend Joe Connelly and Recovery Insurance Adjusters.
