Why Hiring a (good) Public Adjuster Makes Sense

People ask me all of the time, "why should I hire a public adjuster?" They say "I'm a really smart guy, and I can do this on my own."

I will sometimes answer by saying that I'm a pretty smart guy too, and yet when I need to go to court, I always hire a lawyer. When it's tax time, I use an experienced accountant. When you submit a property insurance claim with your insurance company, you need representation as well.

No matter how smart or savvy you might be, there are times to hire a professional to be by your side in order for you to have the best chance of a positive outcome.

There are so many aspects of an insurance claim which make them extremely complicated and tricky.

Replacement values, depreciation, actual cash values, loss of income, loss of use, code issues, proper documentation and a multitude of policies and coverages to name a few. Unless you are trained in all of these facets of an insurance claim, your outcome will be left up to your company's adjuster. Most of them are very nice people, but they represent the insurance company's interest. You need someone to stand for you.

With a qualified public adjuster by your side, you are assured that when your insurance company pays you, there will be nothing left out of your final settlement. Your public adjuster will work hand in hand with your insurance company's adjuster and negotiate a fair value for your loss.

Any (good) public adjuster will cover the cost of their fee, provided they charge the appropriate percentages for their services.

And yes, even on smaller claims, the value of a public adjuster can often be greater. With higher deductibles these days, items can be overlooked or left out or underpaid which cause the amount of the claim to fall under your deductible leaving a zero payout. Therefore every dollar counts more than ever. And your public insurance adjuster will make certain that every single penny gets paid.
