What is a Public Adjuster?
A public adjuster is a licensed claims adjuster who represents you, the insured, in any property damage insurance claim. Having an insurance claim is a time-consuming, stressful, and confusing process. A public adjuster handles it all for you – the estimate of what was damaged, reporting the claim, meeting and communicating with the insurance company’s adjuster, and negotiating a fair settlement. A public adjuster will save you time, stress, and money.
Why Should You Hire a Public Adjuster?
- Maximize Your Settlement: On average, a public adjuster will increase your settlement by 25-40% – often even more. Years of experience in insurance claims means a public adjuster will notice things that you don’t – and the insurance company adjuster won’t point out. Deep understanding of insurance policy language makes sure nothing slips through the cracks. Skillful negotiation ensures a fair settlement. A public adjuster charges a fee, but the investment will pay huge dividends.
- Stress: Stress is a huge factor in the claims process which is sometimes more traumatic for the homeowner than the incident itself. There are a lot of phone calls, paperwork, meetings, negotiations, and occasionally a few battles. A public adjuster will take this off your plate so you can focus on getting your life back together.
- Second Opinion: Getting a second opinion is important because often, the insured will underestimate their own damage, miss hidden damage, or not understand everything their policy entitles them to. A public adjuster will know all of this and will fight to make sure it’s all included in the settlement.
