A public will be most beneficial if they are engaged immediately in a case of loss.
Shortly after the Insurance Company receives notice of a loss, an adjuster representing the Insurance Company will visit the policyholder to gather facts about how the loss occurred, the magnitude of the loss and the possibility of subrogation. Incorrect, incomplete or inadequately expressed answers to the adjuster’s questions may reduce the amount that can be claimed.
A Public Adjuster engaged early in the process, before the fact-finding stage, will have more opportunity to aid the policyholder receive a fair settlement for all losses legitimate covered under the insurance policy. However, any time during negotiations with the Insurance Company and even after a settlement has been received by an insured, a Public Adjuster may be able to negotiate for a higher amount.
