Synergy has nine locations within the USA and one in London. This allows us to provide a coast to coast claims service, and provide our London clients with local representation giving claims help and advice in the same time zone.

In addition we are specialist TPA and Claims Management adjusters, providing our clients with the benefit of our many years of experience including the management of escrow funds and bordereaux presentation. Currently Synergy are responsible for a large number of TPA facilities which require our Claims Management expertise, we dedicate a TPA Manager for each account, and where appropriate a dedicated team.

 

Our Transportation Team, specialise in FTC / MTC / DOL and all aspects of Transportation Work. We have a vast array of adjusters we use and are experts in the areas of Salvage and Subrogation. Synergy are recognised as one of the leading Transportation Adjusters in the industry. We also have experience in dealing with Self Insured Programs and erosion of Annual Aggregate Deductible Programs.

 

Whilst providing services mainly for the London and other E&S Markets we also have a number of domestic clients where we provide full adjustment processes to such clients as major hotel corporations, mall owners and churches.
