Sometimes the Damage Isn’t This Obvious: The Benefits of Hiring a Public Insurance Adjuster to Asses
Each year, wind and wind borne debris causes extensive damage to properties located all across America. It can also cost people their lives. Last year alone, NOAA reported that strong winds claimed the lives of 24 Texans and caused more than $3,510 million in damages. In the aftermath, many Texans turned to public insurance adjusters and rightfully so.
One of the best reasons to hire a public insurance adjuster is that they are not affiliated with an insurance company. As such, they can devote their time to helping Texans wade through all of complexities involved in making the initial insurance claim. For example, some insurance companies located in wind damage prone areas sell policies that have hurricane and/or windstorm deductibles. Each one is apt to have its own triggers, restrictions and payout percentages. A public insurance adjuster could assist the property owner in understanding the finer points of each one. Afterward, he or she could then assist the property owner in completing all of the necessary paperwork.
In addition, a public insurance adjuster can help to ensure that Texas property owners receive an appropriate, unbiased assessment of the damage. That’s because public insurance adjusters are well versed in how the entire process works. They also make it a point to stay on top of what the current replacement values are.
A public insurance adjuster’s job doesn’t end there though. He or she can also make recommendations as to which Texas vendors in the area may be the best ones to utilize during the rebuilding process. Given all of the contractor scams that tend to crop up in an area after a major disaster, such a service can prove to be exceptionally important.
