What Does a Public Adjuster Consider?

Property destruction due to a disaster happens more than you might think. If this has happened to you, you are likely looking to preserve your financial situation as best you can. The first step that will occur is a claims adjuster will evaluate the damage to your home. The insurance company will offer you a dollar amount to repair the damages.

What is a public adjuster?

A claims adjuster works for their insurance company while a public adjuster is an unbiased party who does not work for the insurance company. You may receive a more neutral estimate by inviting a public adjuster to assess the damage. In many cases, this may mean you will receive a higher estimate than the claims adjuster initially offers. A public adjuster can also evaluate your policy, prepare your claim, and work towards reaching a more favorable settlement.

What will a public adjuster consider when making an estimate?

Public adjusters are not out to benefit insurance companies. Instead, their job is to make a fair assessment of any damage to your property. Hiring a public adjuster may make a huge difference in the outcome of this process. However, insurance companies may still deny the public adjuster’s estimate. In this case, the public adjuster will likely hire an insurance attorney.
