Q. Why should I hire a Public Adjuster when my insurance company has already assigned me an Adjuster?
In Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Naples and throughout Florida, the story is the same: hiring a licensed public adjuster results in a substantially larger claim payment. In fact, a 2009 survey by the State of Florida found that there was a 747 percent (over 700%) increase when an adjuster was hired at the start of the claims process.
The answer is simple: a public adjuster represents business owners, condominium associations and homeowners – not the insurer. It’s like hiring a tax lawyer or accountant who can advise you on the best course of action and act as your professional advocate, rather than asking the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to do you a favor and audit your return! Most owners are as unfamiliar with the intricacies of a typical insurance policy as they are with the Internal Revenue Code. It’s important to understand that a public adjuster can help you at a time when you are most vulnerable – in the hours and days after a loss to your business or property. And since public adjusters are compensated on a contingency basis, there is no upfront cost for their services.
Once you engage a public adjuster, you can expect to receive expert advice about what you are entitled to under Florida law and your policy. The public adjuster can also help you with the business planning process by advising on the likely size of a settlement and when that money is likely to arrive. A public adjuster can also recommend a contractor, engineer or other building professional to help determine the accurate damage to your property ensuring a fair compensation. The Insured is ultimately the final decision maker on any professional ultimately hired to repair the damages regarding any claim.
