$42M for Amarillo Schools Hail Claim

 

Complete is pleased to announce the resolution of Amarillo’s 2013 hail claim. An agreement of $42M was reached between the school district and the insurer. This agreement was the result of hard work by the appraisal panel, the school district, the insurer and their counsel.  John Minor was the appraiser for the district, working out the differences between the parties.  John employed certified consulting meteorologists, engineers and drone mounted thermography to understand the damages to the district’s 5.1 million square foot of schools. 

AISD is one of the largest districts in Texas, providing quality education and a caring environment to over 35,000 students on the Caprock in the panhandle.  The school district’s more than 3k in faculty, administration and maintenance were the true heroes in this process. Without their deep understanding, attention to detail, and pride in their district, along with the difficult leg work done by D.A. Lamont Public Adjusters – understanding this loss would have never been possible. We were honored to work alongside these people, who dedicate themselves to the future of our children and the future of the great state of Texas and our country.
