Hail litigation has spiraled out of control in Texas, mainly because of a small group of bad actors who abuse the system,” said Hancock in a statement published Feb. 13. “Senate Bill 10 will address this problem, improve transparency and protect Texas consumers from sky-high premiums without infringing on their right to make an insurance claim or sue their insurance company when it's not holding up its end of a deal.”
We anticipate that the 2017 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have slightly below average activity. The current neutral ENSO is likely to transition to either weak or moderate El Niño conditions by the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season. The tropical Atlantic has anomalously cooled over the past month and the far North Atlantic is relatively cold, potentially indicative of a negative phase of the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation. We anticipate a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean. As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them. They should prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.

"Our claims representatives—whether they're in the field, at one of our service centers or on the phone—make good on our promise to get customers back on the road fast.
And whatever the role, each representative has a chance to cultivate a variety of skills."
"Claims Associates who work with us don’t just make a living, they build a career. We’re always seeking qualified Catastrophe Adjusters, Daily Claims Adjusters and Claims Associates. We have opportunities for field and in-office personnel to handle a variety of losses.
Employment opportunities are driven by a number of factors, including weather, client needs and industry trends. New opportunities are added often — be sure to check this page regularly for open positions."
"The unpredictable nature of catastrophe claims adjusting makes staffing a challenging prospect. Labor requirements fluctuate with windstorm, flood and seismic activity, creating the necessity for an “at-will” or “as needed” adjuster work force, rather than one based on a regular, full-time schedule. Extensive travel and lengthy stays away from home are often required.
Even with that caveat, ICA is continuously searching for quality outside property adjusters and commercial adjusters. We pride ourselves on our Quality Service to our customers and their policy holders. Qualifications should include specific insurance claims adjusting experience in your field of preference and adjuster licensing in your state of residence (if required). Individuals who have a background in a closely related field, such as automobile body repair or home construction, may also be considered for claims adjusting positions. Other requirements for claims adjusting positions include outstanding organizational skills and exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Computer literacy and excellent customer service skills are necessary."
"Due to the fact that our business is based on storm related events, all of our positions are temporary as-needed positions. Wages will vary based on the particular storm, your role and the client company you are representing."
Professionals considered for employment with The Littleton Group are those who are up for a challenge and exhibit exceptional performance.
The professionals we hire help us maintain our commitment to continuous client communications, client flexibility, aggressive and proactive claims handling, and unparalleled customer service.
