Who are Public Adjusters and what do they do?
A PA (Public Adjuster) is privately hired by the insured (client) in attempt to resolve the claim. A PA does not work for the insurance company and works based off a contingency fee. Common fee is 10% of the payment that the carrier pays to the insured.
You can employ a public adjuster to discuss a settlement with your insurance company when your claim is denied or underpaid. If you engage a public adjuster, your insurance company may be prohibited from communicating with you about your claim, which makes it easier to file a law suit against them. The public adjuster should look at your damaged property, contact your insurance company, and get a higher settlement after they work with a lawyer.
It can be helpful to consult with a public adjuster. Requesting assistance from them after suffering an insured property loss is a step a homeowner can undertake. The sooner you call a public adjuster, the sooner they will assist you in working with a lawyer.
