Public Adjuster Services

After a property loss: What happens next?

When you file a claim for a fire loss, wind damage, water damage or flood, your insurance company will dispatch an insurance claim representative who will be either an independent adjuster or a staff adjuster. An independent adjuster represents multiple insurance companies and a staff adjuster works only for one company.

Even though a company adjuster is sent to review your property damage insurance claim, the full responsibility of preparing and proving the claim falls on the insured, not the insurance company. Without assistance from a licensed private public adjuster, some coverage may be overlooked, structural and contents damages could be missed, and the claim could be drawn out, all leading to a reduction in the final settlement. The company adjuster is primarily concerned with making sure that the insurance company does not pay any more than they have to.
