What Is A Public Adjuster?
We Work For You, Not The Insurance Company.
A natural or man-made disaster suddenly strikes your business, interrupting your operations indefinitely. How quickly can you recover and keep your customers? And will your insurance policy help handle it? As you focus on protecting your business, do you also have the time to become fluent in your policy and prepare a thorough claim to get you everything you’re entitled to from your carrier? After all, to the insurance company, it’s now your responsibility, not theirs, to prove your loss. They will want to limit their financial exposure in this situation.
That’s where we come in.
A public adjuster is an insurance professional who works only for you, the policyholder, not the insurance company. We have the special training and expertise to interpret the intricacies of your policy, evaluate and document the full scope of your damage, and negotiate a claim to maximize and expedite your financial recovery.
Why You Need A Public Adjuster
