Frequently Asked Questions
What is a public adjuster?
A public adjuster works for you, not the insurance company. While the adjuster sent out by the insurer is accountable to his or her employer, a public adjuster is a licensed and indepent professional claims handler whose priority is to advocate for the policy holder in the claims process.
Why should I use a public adjuster?
Filing a property claim can be complicated and overwhelming. Property owners too often accept a lower claim value than what the insurer is capable to provide, and are unsure of their standing to negotiate for more. On average, property claims handled by a public adjuster are funded 30% higher than those that are not. A public adjuster represents your best interests, not the insurance company’s, and brings the expertise to handle the process and ensure you get what you deserve.
