Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to your major property damage claim, knowledge is powether — so be sure you know the resources available to you in the wake of a disaster. The public adjusters at Oakmont are here to help you navigate the entire process start to finish and advocate for the best possible settlement and recovery.

  • What is a public adjuster?

    A public adjuster is a licensed insurance professional who exclusively represents the policyholder following major property damage to their home or business. At Oakmont Public Adjusters, we are your proactive advocates in the wake of disaster.

  • What does a public adjuster do?

    Public adjusters provide you peace of mind knowing there is a professional in your corner who can secure the best possible settlements. A public adjuster navigates your insurance policy, combing through the details and complex language to be sure you are aware of your obligations and time restrictions. We know and understand the emotional toll on families and companies and we are there to support you all along the way. Oakmont Public Adjusters expertly evaluate and document your losses—including hidden damages. And we not only prepare your claim and communicate with your insurance company on your behalf, but also negotiate for the best insurance settlement possible to help you recover.

  • How much does a public adjuster charge?

    Public adjusters typically charge a small percentage of the total amount they helped you collect for your claim, so the fee varies. At Oakmont Public Adjusters , we offer free consultations and can give you a fee estimate at that time.

  • When should I hire a public adjuster?

    You should hire a public adjuster as soon as a claim occurs. The earlier a public adjuster gets involved in the process, the less likely you will feel overwhelmed and stressed. Public adjusters work with insurance carriers to navigate the damage and help you understand what coverage you have in place and the amount of settlement of you deserve.

  • Can I rely on my insurance agent to settle my claim?

    While insurance agents are experts on coverage, in most cases they are not trained to appraise and assign value to property damage. Public adjusters have the necessary education and knowledge to review claims and assign an appropriate value for damage repair.
