Public Adjusters For Fire Damage

If fire damages your home, the insurance claim process can be one of the most severe and long types of property loss to sift through. While it may seem like the most straightforward way go with your insurance company’s claims adjuster recommendation, doing so usually leads to a delayed settlement, underpaid settlements, and insufficient options for repairs to your property. Many homeowners willingly accept what the insurance company tells them, even though they are not experienced, and/or knowledgeable in all the steps, terms, and jargon that are used in the insurance industry.

Why Use a Public Adjuster For Your Fire or Smoke Damage Claims?

Under these types of claims, you the insured are entitled to many compensations/recovery monies from your insurance company under your policy. In Florida, like everywhere else, the claims process is extremely complex and this makes your insurance company uncomfortable because with the right public adjuster, they are aware of that. Without the use of a public insurance claims adjuster, you will leave out many details in your recovery, big or small, that will tremendously hurt the recovery of your claim and what you are entitled to.
