Miami Herald: PUBLIC ADJUSTERS LAND LARGER SETTLEMENTS!

From the Miami Herald on January 15, 2010:

 

The Miami Herald quoted an audit that was conducted recently by the Florida Legislature has found that it is clearly within the policy holder's interest to hire a Public Adjuster to represent them during the claim process.

 

The numbers quoted by the article were quite shocking and beyond even my own expectations. To put it plain and simple, the article stressed that in comparing claims filed with Citizens Insurance, those using a Public Adjuster received 574% more than those not using a Public Adjuster and, furthermore, those numbers increased to 747% more on catastrophe claims such as those filed in 2005 for Hurricane damage.

Should I Hire An Attorney or A Public Adjuster?

 

 

Here is a really good video that explains when to use a Public Adjuster and when to use an Attorney to handle your insurance claim. I would say that in almost 95% of situations, you would use a Public Adjuster before an Attorney.

 

Attorney's usually do not understand how to adjust a claim or speak the same language as adjusters. Rather, an Attorney is necessary when a claim is denied and cannot be re-opened or if all options under the policy have been exhausted and you are still not happy with the outcome.

 

IN CONCLUSION, HIRE A PUBLIC ADJUSTER TODAY!

 

 

Hurricane Wilma: Is It Too Late To File A Claim Or Re-Open My Claim?

 

The simple answer to this question is NO!

 

You have up to five years to file a claim and/or re-open a previously filed claim. Since Hurricane Wilma took place on October 24, 2005; you technically have until October 24, 2010 to notify the Insurer Carrier you had at the time of Wilma that you would like to file a claim and/or are interested in re-opening a claim.

 

I will be cautious to advise that this is not a quick and easy process. Additionally, there are certain insurance companies, such as POE, that are no longer in business and it is too late to file a claim or re-open a claim with such carriers.

 

However, if you have documentation, invoices, pictures, receipts, etc. for the monies expended and evidence of the damaged that occurred, you are in a much better position.

 

Give us a call today so we can assist you with this process. Our team of professionals are trained and experienced in dealing with such claims.
