A public adjuster is an authority on loss adjustments who you can retain to assist you in preparing, filing and adjusting your insurance claims. They are employed exclusively by you - the policyholder.
They take a physical inventory, obtain all pertinent appraisals and make sure all provisions in your policy are properly fulfilled in your insurance claims. This often involves numerous steps of which you know little or nothing, but which can make a significant difference in the amount of the final adjustment.
Most people do not realize that insurance company adjusters are trained professionals who represent the interests of the insurance company that employs them. You can protect your interests by employing an accredited public adjuster whose sole responsibility is to serve you, the insured. The public adjuster serves commercial businesses, public and private institutions, professional firms, homeowners and the general insuring public.
