Nick Viamontes has been in the insurance claims business since 1971, when he started his career at the Auto Club of Southern California in Los Angeles, California as an inside claim processor. Within a year’s time, he rose to a supervisory position responsible for ten other inside adjusters, as well as assisting other field adjusters in translation and negotiation of personal injury claims.
After moving to Florida in 1973, Nick worked as a field adjuster for Allstate Insurance Company in Palm Beach County. He was responsible for the initial investigation of bodily injury claims including taking written statements, photos and collecting necessary documentation for the eventual settlement of the claim.
Subsequent to this, in 1978, Mr. Viamontes then entered the Independent Adjusting arena. He established his own adjusting company, representing major carriers such as Prudential Property & Casualty – PRUPAC and Metropolitan Property and Liability in the Miami-Dade area.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, Nick had the opportunity to adjust hundreds of claims. Because he and his family were also victims of Hurricane Andrew’s wrath and endured the loss of their home, he moved his family and business to Jupiter, Florida.
After re-establishing himself in the Jupiter, Florida area, in 1997, Viamontes Enterprises, Inc. was formed and became the parent company of Specialty Adjusting International, Specialty Adjusting Services and Specialty Appraisal and Dispute Resolution.
Since that time, Mr. Viamontes has offered independent adjusting services to several Lloyd’s of London syndicates, Third Party Administrators as well as domestic insurance carriers and self-insured entities. In the process, Specialty Adjusting International has grown from serving just the South Florida area to now adjusting claims throughout the US.
As a former Private Investigator, Special Process Server for the 11th Judicial Circuit Court in Miami-Dade County, Insurance Claims Adjuster for over 43 years, along with his bilingual skills, Mr. Viamontes has always represented his clients well in the highly competitive service business of insurance claims adjusting.
