Public adjusters are a great line of defense against the rigors of the claims process. A report published by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability revealed that policyholders who use public adjusters tend to receive 747% more on their insurance settlement than those who choose to do it on their own.
Beyond helping you negotiate a better settlement, public adjusters can also help you manage other aspects of your claim by referring you to the right appraisers, plumbers, restoration/construction companies, and lawyers who can help you restore your property and settle any legal matters that might arise throughout the claim settlement and property restoration process.
Before you hire a claims expert to handle your case, you need to make sure they’re capable of accomplishing the task efficiently. The last thing you need while dealing with an emotionally overwhelming situation is additional stress and frustration.
You need to carefully screen any public adjuster you plan to hire before bringing them on to work for you. There are important questions you need to ask when hiring a public adjuster to ensure you’re the company that is best qualified to assist with your claim.
You’re going to be working closely with the public adjuster you hire for many weeks or months so it’s important that you choose someone you’re comfortable dealing with and can trust to handle every angle of your claim properly.
