Caution After the Storm: Avoiding Storm Chasers
When widespread damage occurs, insurance adjusters are under pressure to serve many clients all at once. Knowing this, “storm chasers,” people pretending to be adjusters, contractors, or restoration experts, move in quickly and begin knocking on doors. Be skeptical of anyone who shows up at your business who you haven’t contacted first.

  • Professional insurance adjusters will have identification. Ask for it. If someone claiming to be an adjuster doesn’t have ID, ask the person to leave your property immediately. If the adjuster does provide identification, call the insurance provider and verify that the adjuster is who he/she claims to be.
  • Contractors and roofers almost never can act as insurance adjusters. If a contractor, roofer or anyone else claims they are also adjusters, do not let them perform an inspection or do any work until you have verified with your insurance provider that they are who they claim to be and are authorized. Not doing so could result in your claim being delayed or denied.
  • Work only with qualified contractors and restoration companies.
