Hiring a Public Adjuster

How to Hire the Right Public Adjuster

Filing a property damage insurance claim involves a number of steps that many property owners do not have the time or resources to complete effectively. When your property suffers damage and you turn to your insurance company for help, they will not exactly be working on your side. The insurance company’s adjuster that will visit your damaged property will be there to assess your damage and calculate the cost of the repairs. But, unfortunately, the insurance company’s adjuster will be working with the insurance company’s interests at the forefront of his or her mind. For these reasons it is important to have an advocate that will work on your behalf to protect your interests as a property owner and insurance customer.

An experienced public adjuster will help you list all of the property loss and determine repair and replacement costs for every item. Your public adjusters will not only provide correct repair estimates, but he or she may be able to uncover hidden damage that is not readily apparent and include those in your claim as well. The public adjusters estimates will likely include some contrasts to the insurance company’s adjuster’s figures. At this point your public adjuster, who is there to serve you, will negotiate these costs with the insurance company and fight to get you a fair and adequate settlement. Count on your public adjuster to act as your advocate from the time they visit your damaged property until the day you receive your settlement.

Here are some points to keep in mind when looking for a public adjuster to help you with your claim:

Hire a Local Public Adjuster – Make sure that your public adjuster will be available and able to visit your property when needed. You want to be sure your public adjuster will be at your property to oversee repairs and attend meetings with your insurance company. Hiring local also guarantees a public adjuster that is familiar with your region’s laws and processes.

Hire Only Licensed Public Adjusters – Ask to see license credentials.

Check Provided References – Talking to your public adjuster’s past employers and clients is an excellent way to gauge their service and effectiveness.

Shop for a public adjuster now, before any property damage has occurred. This is a good idea for two reasons. First, once property damage hits there will be little time to do this. Secondly, if you establish a relationship beforehand, your public adjuster will already be familiar with your insurance policy and will be ready to act on short notice.
