Who Is The Independent Insurance Adjuster?

An independent adjuster is hired by the insurance company to figure out the scope of loss, write an estimate and help determine your insurance payout.

The most important words in the preceding paragraph to pay close attention to are: “hired by the insurance company”.

That’s right…this person doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

They can’t possibly do this because the entity signing their paycheck is the same entity you’re in currently in a legal battle with: the insurance company.

Make no mistake…it’s a legal battle.

You’ll be asked to sign and document legal paperwork throughout the entire process.

If you don’t understand what you’re signing you can severely hurt your chances of receiving adequate compensation for your damages.

Who Is The Public Adjuster?

When you hire a Miami public adjuster to adjust your Florida property damage you’re bringing someone on board to represent your legal position against the insurance company.

This person works for you!

A public adjuster will help you understand your insurance policy. This person is able to help you determine what’s covered and what’s not covered.

Most importantly, a public adjuster will be able to navigate the complex nature of the claims process. They will help you document the losses, file the claim and negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company and their hired gun: the independent insurance adjuster.

If you bring your Miami public adjuster on board immediately it can help open your claims process in the most positive manner.

The reason for this is that your representative will be there when the company adjuster walks your property to determine the scope of damage and write the estimate.

Insurance companies are notorious for trying to ignore significant damage so the estimate comes in low. Your public adjuster won’t let this happen. They’ll make sure to point out every single aspect that you must be compensated for.

Doing this on the initial walk-through helps ensure that the first company estimate is closer to reality, which helps prevent unneeded and lengthy negotiations to try and get the estimate higher.
