Welcome to Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International

As the nation's premier disaster recovery consulting organization, our core focus is maximizing and expediting our clients' financial recovery from insurance and FEMA.

Our public adjusters have offices in Fort Lauderdale and Melbourne, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Baltimore and Rockville, Maryland; New York, New York; Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; and Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

We are experienced with the types of natural disasters that strike here, the companies that insure here, and how local claims are handled. We are able to coordinate all emergency service needs (board-up, water extraction, fencing, etc.), allowing you to quickly meet your obligation to mitigate the damages. In addition, because we are part of one of the largest disaster consulting organizations in the world, we can draw on the resources of hundreds of experts and handle even the largest cases.

Goodman-Gable-Gould was formed by three Baltimore public insurance adjusters in 1941. Over the decades, steady growth prompted the addition of our other offices.

In 1985 we, along with a group of leading public adjusting firms in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, foresaw the need for an international network of highly skilled public adjusters who could bring specific expertise to servicing any type of loss, anywhere, at any time. Adjusters International was the result.

Today, over 70 years after our founding, the Goodman family is still at the helm. Our president, Harvey Goodman, SPPA, has been assisting policyholders since 1976.

Category 3 Hurricane Odile struck Baja California, Mexico, early last week causing massive damage to resorts, hotels, and condominiums. Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International has a team of bilingual adjusters and claims professionals, with years of experience in handling these types of claims, on the ground in the hardest hit areas. Our adjusters are able to work through the Spanish-language policies that may be in place at many of the impacted properties. We have established relationships with local builders and stateside restoration companies, in addition to being familiar with the local laws regarding rebuilding and mitigating losses, enabling us to service our clients and help them through the difficult recovery process.

The insurance claims process can be a difficult one to navigate under normal conditions, but ever more so following a disaster of this magnitude. For policyholders with no prior knowledge of, or experience with how such insurance claims are settled, starting the insurance claims process without professional advocacy can be overwhelming. Our public adjusters are available and ready to help those with damages recover efficiently and receive appropriate settlements.

The Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International team is comprised of top experts in the public adjusting field and our experience with hurricane claims is unparalleled. We have successfully resolved hurricane insurance claims from many major hurricanes during the past 73 years, to include Hurricane/Super Storm Sandy in New York and New Jersey in 2012, as well as Katrina and Rita, and Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Wilma in Florida which all occurred within several months of one another.

We are pleased to share with you our newest edition of Insights for Your Industry, “Coinsurance — What Is It and Why Is It Important?.” While specifically addressed to hoteliers, this informational piece discusses what happens when a hotel, or any building owner, for that matter, fails to carry an amount of insurance that is equal to a required percentage of the value of the building.

It is well established that most building property losses are partial in that they do not result in the total destruction of the structure involved. For insureds that recognize this, there may be a tendency to play the odds and limit the amount of insurance purchased. The coinsurance provision in property insurance policies is designed to discourage this thinking. The objective of coinsurance is to reward those who insure at close to full value and penalize those who do not. Hotel management can benefit from regularly discussing their insurance program with their agent or broker, particularly focusing on whether they carry sufficient insurance so as to eliminate a coinsurance penalty in the event of loss.

Offered in electronic format, our complete library of Insights for Your Industry is available for free download on our website.
