“I have been doing this long enough to know that when folks are not happy with a situation they are quick to complain to the boss but unfortunately they are not quite as quick to let the boss know when things are going well. I wanted to take a minute to give Chris (Madsen) and the CAI team an "Atta Boy" for the work done….. his strategizing and discussions with defense counsel were a factor in our ultimately getting out of the matter on a summary judgement…... It was a real team effort and Chris was out front leading the charge. We truly appreciate all that he and the rest of your team do for our program!
"I thought the adjuster (Chad Moore) did a good job explaining what he thought needed to be done....he seemed very good.... "

"Advise Cory (Beck) great job on his first report and providing so much information.
"The claim that Tim (Wieker) had done for me was great. I certainly would definitely use you again"
Chris & Jeff, thank you for the great work your team does for ASBPT! While I have felt this way since day one and our members sing your praises, it is great to hear from a non-biased party. Please congratulate your team as well for their hard work and persistence.

Thank you...I truly would like to let your superior know how helpful and informative (not to mention tolerant, LOL) you were with this matter. Thank you again. (a thanks to Kimberly Rausch)
..."received a contractor estimate on this claim today for $37,607.00. Your estimate was $37,007.45. Good job"...
The Claim Supervisors and staff demonstrate good claims handling ability and they have substantial experience in handling complex and detailed liability claims. The staff has remained extraordinarily stable within Claims Associates; most of the staff has extensive tenure with Claims Associates.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year wishes to you, your family and all the group at Claims Associates. You all helped make a really tough year more manageable. I appreciate all of you.
Thank you again for taking time to do such a nice job.... giving us a detailed estimate. You did an awesome job and got this done quickly. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Investigation historically has always been a real strength for Claims Associates and the review confirms those findings. Their claim investigative skills are adjusting at its finest. Four out of eight files involved field investigative work. The investigations were all in-depth and pursued until all avenues were explored.... All eight files contained a clear analysis of liability in the claim notes and captioned reports.

Thank you for your great service.... I don't get many of these (comments below from agent), it's nice to know we have the right people assisting us. ".... stopped in today and said an adjuster stopped by. ...said he was a very nice guy and he was very satisfied with their service. ....nice to have a customer make a special trip to stop and tell you they are satisfied."
Thank you Cory Beck for all the work and effort ….. regarding repairs to the foundation. You’re the only one that listened and cared and got results. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your work and effort …. You’ve been a big blessing.
Chris (Madsen), thank you for the presentation today, you hit the ball out of the park and it is very much appreciated. I know your presentation had a big impact and made a difference, thank you.

"files have benefited from the involvement of Jeff Jares. He continues to be a driving force in moving the claims, many of them complex, to successful resolution...expertise is exceptional. Claims...roundtabled allowing for review and consensus on the issues. The adjusters are not only performing field investigations they are attending depositions, settlement conferences, mediations and trials..."
"we found investigations of compensability of workers' compensation claims are appropriate...excellent effort to recover subrogation where appropriate...payment of compensation and medical bills timely and appropriate"
"we are very pleased with Cory's report and his excellent and thorough investigation of this claim"
(Regarding Ethan Kellett, Multi-Line Adjuster in Rapid City office) I also thought I would pass along that David had nothing but praise for you. Indicated that you are excellent at your job and probably the best/easiest adjuster he has worked with. Feels like you are making sure we are being properly taken care of.
You are both making this process easy for us and I do greatly appreciate that.
Thank you for all you help us with. Throughout this journey we've had beautiful people help us to adjust and understand a very different life. You are one of the beautiful people! Enjoy a great weekend.
