Engle Martin & Associates, Atlanta-based a national loss adjusting and claims management company, has expanded its presence in the specialty lines market.

The Engle Martin Specialty Claims Unit will complement the company’s existing array of commercial claims services and support their goals for growth in 2011.

The Specialty Claims Unit services excess & surplus lines insurance carriers, self-insured entities, program managers and the London market.

Engle Martin’s specialty line service offerings include claims adjusting for fraternal, non-profit and educational organizations, exotic animal venues, race tracks and sports venues, plus heavy equipment and machinery.

The company has a dedicated team handling these specialty claims and offers a true understanding of the client’s business and unique requirements. Together, the three professionals managing the specialty lines team of adjusters have over 100 years of claims experience.

Engle Martin & Associates executive vice president of business development Todd Evans said the company discovered a general market need for quality, high-end specialty line adjusting services.

"The services available in our industry were fragmented and often required programs to fit into the mold of a claims provider or carrier rather than the other way around," Evans said.
