FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Each year, as temperatures start to rise across the country, the number of insurance claims related to damaging hail storms also increases. Even though it’s just the start of the 2017 hail season, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hail causes about $1 billion dollars in damage each year. That’s why Property Damage Appraisers (PDA) is positioned to offer additional support to assist insurance companies during this busy season.
“We understand that insurance companies are bogged down by the high volume of claims that hail storms bring,” said Tom Dolfay, CEO of PDA. “The influx of work can take away from focusing on everyday claims. We want these companies to know that we’re here to help them when they need it.”
PDA can support staff by:
- Assisting with or handling additional estimates that a catastrophic event like hail produces.
- Handling non-hail estimates to free up time for adjusters to focus on claims from storms.
With PDA’s national network of appraisers, the company has the ability to pull in appraisers from other parts of the country to assist with catastrophic events, thus, increasing productivity and reducing cycle time for the additional claims volume.
PDA’s expertise goes beyond cars and extends to RVs, boats, motorcycles, ATVs and heavy equipment including large vehicles such as 18-wheelers and buses.
