For many homeowners, the preparation of a property damage claim without the assistance of their own public adjuster working on their behalf is unfamiliar territory. A typical insurance policy contains hundreds of provisions and stipulations, constantly changing forms and endorsements, and many complex details such as inventory appraisals and real estate evaluations that are required in case of a loss. These documents are filled with complicated language and calculations that only a claims adjuster will thoroughly understand.
When an insurance claim is filed, it is YOUR responsibility as the policyholder to prove the extent of damages and that they are covered under your insurance policy. When you hire a public adjuster, this burden becomes our burden. At Claims Detectives, our public adjusters prepare, file, and negotiate maximum dollar settlements of your insurance claim.
