APPLETON-- As damage estimates rise into the millions, insurance adjusters are working around the clock to assist storm victims. After three days of clean up, some are making progress, while others will need to wait even longer just before power is restored.
It's one of the busiest days of the year for insurance adjuster Mike Hendricks of Voyager Claims Management. He says a typical day involves 3 or 4 claims. But the day following the storm, Hendricks says they had more than 75 homes to visit. Hendricks says stress levels are always high in the days following a major storm.
"For the most part people are dealing with it they best they can, I think not having power is putting more stress on people than anything else," Hendricks said.
At a State Farm Insurance office in Appleton, they were also without power for a couple of days. They've been working hard to catch up and help those impacted by the storms. Agent Ryan Renard says he's working to ensure everyone who needs to file a claim gets the help they need.
"Everybody's damage is important, everybody's damage is unique to them and each individual storm is unique in its characteristics, so that's why we really appreciate everybody and their patience as they go through this process," Renard said.
