Help with Insurance Claim Disputes: What Texans Need to Know
Are you a Texan in need of help with an insurance claim dispute? Perhaps your property was recently damaged and you’re worried that the insurance company won’t handle the matter fairly. Either way, there are a few things that you should know:
#1: Role of Texas Public Adjusters
One of the first bits of information that you should know is the role of public adjusters in Texas. Public adjusters in Texas do not work for insurance companies or their affiliated parties. They are independent, licensed professionals that make it their mission to fight fearlessly on the behalf of Texas claimants. As such, they can play a valuable role in ensuring that insurance claim disputes are settled quickly and evenhandedly.
#2: Unfairly settled claims can be reopened
Second, you should know that just because a Texas insurance claim has been settled, it doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the road. Texas public adjusters have the tenacity and the wherewithal to get unfairly settled claims reopened. So they can help you regardless of where you are in the filing process.
For example, let’s assume that you settled a water damage claim but the insurance company’s appraiser didn’t take into account hidden mold removal costs. If the claim is successfully reopened, you can request compensation for those additional damages.
#3: Reopened claims may be disputed
Third, once the disputed insurance claim has been reopened, Texas public adjusters can make a difference. They will use all of their expertise to help you and your insurance company reach a mutually acceptable outcome. Take our previous latent mold story as an example. A skilled Texas public adjuster can assess the costs associated with the additional damage to ensure that the insurance company pays its fair share.
