Severe Thunderstorms Dump Large Hail and Produce Heavy Winds Leaving a Trail of Damage in Northern DFW, Temple, Killeen and Bryan.
Leading Edge Claims Service' adjusters in the affected areas are already onsite, performing inspections. Due to the extensive damage, we have also mobilized a team of catastrophe adjusters.
We will continue to monitor the weather for additional deployment as we continue to Lead the Way in Times of Crisis!
Leading Edge Claims Service hosted its annual claims conference this past weekend at the Hilton Hotel in Southlake, TX. We extend our gratitude to the adjusters and employees that attended as well as the vendors that participated in the continuing education training.
We would also like to extend a huge congratulations to our adjusters and staff for their participation in making Leading Edge Claims Service the #1 ranked vendor at TWIA/TFPA in 2016. Without the hard work and dedication of our employees and adjusters, we could not have achieved the highest overall score for the year.
2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year with the renewal of the HPFM, TWIA, and TFPA contracts, the addition of two (2) new Carriers, and further expansion into the Lloyd's of London markets.
Let's keep Leading the Way in Times of Crisis in 2017!
Leading Edge Claims Service launches its newly designed website that offers quick and easy access to essential information with features that offer a more comprehensive understanding of the Company's specialized and innovative services.
The new website was designed to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience with improved navigation, communication, and functionality throughout, allowing Carriers and adjusters to access information easily. The improved communication provides the ability to share information across all major social networking sites which will provide enhanced service to our clients, adjusters, independent partners, and staff.
The new leadingedgeclaims.com represents the initial phase of the company's re-branding initiative that was introduced in December of 2016.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful, peaceful holiday and a very happy, healthy New Year!
Thank you for all your support. Warmest Wishes for a joyous holiday season!
The Leading Edge Family!
Leading Edge Claims Service continuously handles day claims and catastrophe claims for the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) and the Texas FAIR Plan Insurance Association (TFPA) since Hurricane Ike in 2008.
As contracts come up for renewal, TWIA and TFPA undergo a “Request for Qualifications” (RFQ) process. We have been selected through this process every time it has been required. The RFQ for the 2017 contract renewal was released this morning and our response is due by December 1, 2016. A requirement of that response is to provide TWIA with the number of Independent Adjusters (IA) that are certified through the 2021Training.com website. If you are not currently certified or your certification has expired, your name cannot be part of the RFQ process and will not be included in the response.
To ensure you are included, please go to http://www.2021training.com/twia/ to complete the “2016 TWIA / TFPA Residential Field Adjuster Certification (3.5 hrs)” course. At the end of the certification, please select Leading Edge Claims Service as your IA Firm. This will be a quick way to get certified and be included on a roster for 2017.
FYI…You will have the option to change vendors at any time during the course of the renewed contract.
If you want to also be eligible to handle Commercial claims, please take the “2016 TWIA Commercial Field Adjuster Certification (1 hr)” as well.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Leading Edge’s corporate office. Thank you for your commitment to Leading Edge Claims Service and we appreciate your quick response and certification. Remember, you must take this course before December 1, 2016 to be included in the RFQ.
Thanks in advance for your participation!
Leading Edge Claims Service is proud of its continued membership with the Texas Association of Farm Mutual Carriers (TAMIC). Leading Edge Claims Service remains committed to sponsoring this event each and every year.
Blake Mears, our Director of Training, attended the conference this year and enjoyed his time with TAMIC's members.
We extend a special thanks to TAMIC for this great event and the work they do for Texas Farm Mutual Carriers as well as the Carrier's members and their communities!
Kerrville, TX and the surrounding area was hit with damaging hail on May 17th, 26th, and again on June 1, 2016.
A catastrophe response team has been activated and they are working hard to assist the people of Kerrville with their losses.
Storm reports from the National Weather Service revealed hail as large as 3.5 inches in diameter fell on the north side of San Antonio Tuesday night. Leading Edge Claims wishes the communities the best while they begin repairs to their homes. Our San Antonio adjusters in the affected areas are committed to servicing our customers through this difficult time. Due to the extensive damage, we have mobilized a group of catastrophe adjusters to assist in the damaged areas and Leading Edge Claims is beginning claim investigations immediately.
Our response is being coordinated by President, Troy Hansen and Claims Director, David Christopher.
Large hail fell across the entire DFW metroplex and about 80% of the homes in the Wylie area are estimated to have significant damage.
Our DFW adjusters have been alerted and are making contact at this time with policyholders who have sufferred damage. A catastrophe response team has also been initated and adjusters are mobilizing to assist with the claim inspections immediately.
We wish all the families and businesses with damage our best as you start to repair and rebuild your properties.
2015 has proved to be a great year for Leading Edge Claims Service. Although no major events have occurred for large deployments, we have remained steady and have kept many adjusters busy throughout the year. We appreciate all our independent adjusters and staff have done in helping us “Lead the Way” with our Carriers and their customers! Going into the fall, we have secured multiple Contracts with new Carriers that will be providing large growth and an abundance of deployment opportunities for you, our Independent partners, over the coming months.
With this expansion of Carriers, we are providing training seminars throughout the Country over the month of August and September.
Also, with Hurricane Season fast approaching, don’t forget to obtain your Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) and your Texas FAIR Plan Insurance Association (TFPA) certifications to be eligible for deployment. Training can be performed at http://www.2021training.com/twia/adjuster-certification/. When you complete your training, please select Leading Edge Claims Service as your Vendor. We are currently one (1) of ten (10) companies performing field inspections for TWIA/TFPA.
Be safe this Hurricane season and we look forward to your continued commitment to Leading Edge Claims Service.
