Florida homeowners frustrated by insurance claim delays related to Hurricane Ian

Public adjusters can help property owners in Florida. Hurricane Ian led to thousands of insurance claims for people in Southwest Florida. It has been several weeks since the storm, but according to local news reports, homeowners are frustrated by the delays in processing their claims.

When a storm causes this level of widespread devastation, insurance companies have trouble handling the claims promptly. They often bring in out-of-state adjusters or rotate adjusters, which further delays the ordeal.

Right now, property owners across the state may still be paying out of pocket for mitigation and repairs because their insurance companies have yet to make any settlement payments.

You should know that the law requires vital deadlines to be met. Your insurance company is obligated to meet those deadlines; if they haven't, it is time to get professional help.

A public adjuster can take over negotiations with your insurance company and get your settlement moving forward.

If you consider hiring a public adjuster, be sure to find one licensed by Florida's Insurance Commission. A public adjuster does not work for the insurance company; they are hired directly by the property owner to represent them during a claim.
