The month of September 2017 has become the strongest hurricane month ever recorded, with five already hitting North America. As hurricane season continues, there is the potential for more to come, ravaging already damaged areas throughout the Atlantic coast. Our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected.
We at Parker Straus have seen firsthand the damage that Hurricane Harvey inflicted upon the Houston area. As a Major for the Texas State Guard, Michael Parker was deployed to Houston to assist with the recovery efforts.
In this time of recovery and rebuilding, there is also the potential for fraudulent claims. After returning from deployment, Michael combined his extensive SIU and insurance fraud experience with his military relief service, presenting “Floods of Fraud” at the IASIU 2017 Seminar in New Orleans. Covering topics from disaster aid and relief to identifying fraudulent or excessive claims, the presentation has valuable insight for all involved in the recovery efforts.

This is a stressful and busy time for those of you working in the affected areas. We at Parker Straus are here to help. Please contact us at (888) 557-3311 if there is anything we can do to aid in these efforts.
