If you have a residential or commercial property loss–whether it be from water damage, a roof leak, storm or hurricane loss, a fire, mold growth, a catastrophic event, even a crop loss-contacting a public adjuster before you do anything else is the smartest move you might ever make.
Why Use a Public Adjuster?
For those of you who have used a public adjuster in the past, you already know the great reasons it is such a smart move. You most likely got a far greater settlement from your insurance company, due to the work performed by your public adjuster. If you have never used a public adjuster, just looking at the image above this post tells a big part of the story. Those facts, which we are showing again in the image below, come straight from the most reputable source, the Office of Public Analysis & Government Accountability. They are an office of the legislature providing data, evaluative research, and objective analyses to assist legislative budget and policy deliberations.
A Public Adjuster is an option no insurance company will tell you about. Public adjusters are insurance professionals who work for the public. They represent residential and commercial property owners who have experienced damages or a loss. The public adjusting niche is highly regulated by the state, making sure that the public adjuster is operating according to state standards and statutes.
In the state of Florida, Public Adjusters must not only finish an insurance course and pass a state-administered bar exam, but be fingerprinted, pass a background check, and be bonded for $50,000. On top of that, a public adjuster in Florida must apprentice under another licensed Public Adjuster for an entire year.
All of this information answers your question; why use a public adjuster? On average, a public adjuster will get you 747% more as an insurance settlement than you would have received if you had accepted the claim filed by the adjuster sent out to view your loss by the insurance company he/she works for.
As you can see, the bottom line is that hiring a public adjuster is the only thing that makes sense when you have a commercial or residential property loss.
