When filing a property loss insurance claim, you should know the difference between the adjuster your insurance company will send out and a public adjuster. Sometimes referred to as an independent adjuster, your insurance company will send someone to the property where the loss occurred. The independent insurance adjuster works on behalf of your insurance company to document your claim, assess the amount of loss and recommend a settlement. It is important to know that this kind of adjuster works for your insurance company.
A public adjuster works as an advocate for YOU, the policyholder. In the case of a business or residential property claim, it is in the policyholder’s best interest to hire a public adjuster. A public adjuster will go through your policy line by line in order to properly document your loss in its entirety. Then, the public adjuster compiles a comprehensive report outlining all damages and related loss. A public adjuster will then negotiate with your insurance company to make sure your settlement pays you every penny you deserve. The public adjuster, from start to finish, handles your entire insurance claim.
Key Fact: Public adjusters are paid as a percentage of the settlement they recover for you. If they do not recover anything, you pay nothing.
