Damage to your home can be a devastating blow. Besides the loss of your home and personal possessions, your emotional state during this difficult time can make it hard to think clearly and objectively.
No one knows your business better than you do. Following a major loss, you should be focused on maintaining your operations, managing your employees, making vital business decisions and not learning the ins-and-outs of the insurance claims process.
An insurance appraisal is a policy process which is designed to resolve monetary disputes between the policyholder and the insurance company. If you are unable to agree to the amount of loss, and an agreement can’t be reached, either party can demand appraisal.
What is a Public Adjuster?
A Public Adjuster works for you, the policyholder, and is your advocate in evaluating and negotiating your insurance claim with the insurance company. They protect your interest and level the playing field so you are treated fairly by the insurance company and their representatives.
There are two types of insurance claims adjusters:
Those that work for the insurance company.
Those that represent you, the policyholder.
Policies can be complicated. There are many endorsements and exclusions that affect your claim. How you prepare your claim can significantly affect how much, or even if, you get paid.
The benefits of hiring a Public Adjuster are to:
Protect you and maximize your insurance settlement.
Read the ”fine print” of your insurance policy to interpret what coverage may be applicable to a claim.
Research, evaluate and estimate damage to buildings, contents and any additional expenses.
Calculate business interruption costs, loss of income, and extra expense claims for businesses.
Determine values for covered damages.
Prepare, document and support the claim on behalf of the insured.
Negotiate a settlement with the insurance company on behalf of an insured.
We do all the work so you don't have to!
