How to choose a quality public adjuster for help with your insurance claim

If you own a home or business that has been damaged, you may be faced with questions about your insurance claim. Most property owners will call their insurance company to report the damage and follow their instructions throughout the claim.

If you try to handle the claim on your own, you may end up costing yourself thousands of dollars and countless hours spent trying to process the necessary paperwork. Many property owners are not aware that they have the right to hire a public adjuster.

Your state's insurance commission licenses public adjusters, and they are experts regarding property damage and insurance policy.

It is essential to understand the benefits of hiring a public adjuster. First, you get an insurance expert to review your policy to determine all coverages you are entitled to.

A public adjuster can also successfully negotiate directly with your insurance provider to ensure you get the settlement you deserve.

A public adjuster can also expedite your claim by preparing your proof of loss report, assistance with any mitigation steps that will be required to limit additional damage, and we can schedule necessary meetings with your insurance company.

All of this is necessary to ensure you, the property owner, and the insurance company meets vital deadlines. Sill represents hundreds of property owners each year, and we have successfully negotiated settlements with almost every insurance provider in the industry.
