WHAT IS A PUBLIC ADJUSTER?
Wondering what a public adjuster is (also commonly referred to as a private adjuster)?
A public adjuster is an insurance claims expert you hire to represent you, helping with documenting/estimating & negotiating your insurance claim. A public claims adjuster has no conflict of interest and helps you with your entire claim, every step of the way. Generally, they are paid out of the insured’s claim, rather than up front—so they have every motivation to make sure that the insured receives the largest, fairest settlement possible.
HOW DO PUBLIC ADJUSTERS DO ALL OF THIS?
A private adjuster assesses the damage itself, either themselves or through a report from a trusted inspector and determine the costs of the repair. They also read the home owner’s insurance policy to determine whether or not the damage is covered, and if so, to what extent. They then guide the insured through the claims process, which itself can be complex and intimidating for the layperson.
Public adjusters in South Florida are very aware of not only the basics of their profession—how to interpret policies, document damage, and file claims—but also of the types of damage most common in the region. This is important, because those types of damage that are most frequent (water damage, storm and flood damage, etc.) in a particular region are also the types of claims insurance companies scrutinize the most. No matter how justified a claim, a simple mistake on the part of the property owner could lead to it being refused or the settlement reduced. Whether you have fire damage or water damage South Florida, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Don’t let that happen to you. You deserve a private adjuster on your side.
