While many do not think about this way, hiring a public adjuster for your property damage claim is actually a big step that needs to be thoroughly considered. There are both pros and cons to hiring a public adjuster in Miami or elsewhere in Florida.
And today, our Miami public adjusters attorney is going to outline four things about handling your property damage claim with the help of an insurance adjuster. So are you going to benefit from letting a public adjuster handle your claim or not?
Why hire a public adjuster?
By having a skilled public adjuster by your side, you can significantly increase the settlement amount for your property damage claim. Depending on your insurance policy, handling a property damage can become a confusing and exhaustive process for someone who does not know all the rules insurance companies have to follow and the tricks employed by insurers to minimize the settlement amount.
A public adjuster is basically an expert who can assess the full value of your damages sustained in a pipe leak, roof leak, water damage, hurricane, mold, bubbling paint, wind storms, and other devastating incidents, accidents or natural disasters. But there’s a but…
Not all public adjusters are good for you
You have probably heard it multiple times: not all fats are good for you. The same can be said about public adjusters: there are the good and the bad ones. The bad ones can be compared to trans fats that are harmful to your health. Similarly, bad public adjusters are harmful to the outcome or settlement amount of your property damage claim.
It is important to understand who a public adjuster really is. A public adjuster is an expert who works on behalf of you (the policyholder) and has no relation whatsoever to your insurance company. An insurance adjuster recommended or assigned by your insurance company, on the other hand, is not a public adjuster.
Hiring an adjuster provided by your insurer to handle your property damage claim would have the same effect as hiring the person who robbed you to be your lawyer. As you can imagine, the outcome would not be in your favor…
Do not hire THESE public adjusters
It is essential to understand that an adjuster provided by your insurance company will be handling your property damage claim in his/her company’s best interests. Meaning: do not even hope for a second that you will be getting the settlement amount that you truly deserve.
A far better way to get help in settling your claim, evaluating your losses and damages, reviewing your insurance policy, collecting evidence, and negotiating with your insurer, would be to hire a Miami property damage lawyer at the Korin Law, P.A.
