Maverick Claims was born out of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which highlighted the need for well-trained adjusters who could provide a quality product. All too often, claims adjusting reports lack the quality and comprehensiveness that company claim representatives deserve and should, frankly, demand. The independent adjuster must be more than an estimator—they must be part counselor, part historian, part investigator, part estimator and part analyzer. If the role of an adjuster was to merely provide a repair estimate, insurers could simply hire licensed contractors. The founders of Maverick, seasoned company claims managers with a keen understanding of what company claim representatives want from their chosen adjuster, set out to create a new standard.
