5 Signs That You Could Benefit From Hiring A Public Adjuster

Public adjusters can often help insurance policyholders to get compensation from their homeowners' insurance policy. However, a lot of consumers don't know when exactly it's appropriate to hire a public adjuster.

The following are five signs that you can benefit from involving a public adjuster in your insurance claim: 

1. You're filing an insurance claim to compensate you for particularly heavy losses.

The more you think your insurance claim is worth, the more important it is to work with a public adjuster to help you pursue compensation. Insurance companies are often more aggressive at minimizing compensation amounts on claims that are going to be expensive for them, so you may need public adjuster assistance with a large claim. 

If you've experienced heavy losses as a result of damage to your home, you need to get compensated for those losses, or you may experience a severe financial setback. Therefore, you should work with a public adjuster to maximize your compensation. 

2. Your insurance claim has been unfairly denied.

A public adjuster can help you to pursue a claim that was initially denied by your insurance company. Public adjusters can instruct you on what you can do to deal with a rejected claim and put together a follow-up claim that your insurance company will be less likely to reject. 

Contact a public adjuster if you know your insurance company owes you compensation but won't accept a claim you've already filed. 

3. You'd like a second opinion on what the value of your loss has been in an insurance claim.

You might not be too certain of just what your total losses are for damage your home has experienced. If you need help evaluating your claim, you can contact a public adjuster to help you calculate the value of your loss. 

4. You're having trouble communicating with the insurance adjuster for your claim.

If you're finding it difficult to get in touch with your insurance adjuster after filing your claim, it's not a good sign. In this case, you can hire a public adjuster so that you have a more reliable resource to help you evaluate your claim and get the compensation the insurance company owes you. 

5. You're not sure whether you should file an insurance claim or not.

A public adjuster will come out to your property and inspect any damage you've experienced. The adjuster can then advise you on whether or not you should file a claim.

The adjuster can tell you whether you're owed compensation according to the terms of your insurance policy and whether you can realistically expect to have a claim approved.
