Life in the sunshine state comes with many perks. From the weather to the gorgeous beaches, Florida has a lot to offer new and existing residents. However, one thing every Florida resident needs to be made aware of is hurricane season. Hurricane season lasts between June and October, with the worst storms usually occurring in August or September. Despite this, people love to live here. Hurricanes and hurricane damage is simply one of those risks that come with the state. Also, every year is different, and some years we see more hurricanes than others. And when a storm does hit, it’s good to have a plan of action for the damages. Included in this plan should be a public adjuster who can walk you through hurricane damage claims in Florida.
What is a Public Adjuster?
A public adjuster is someone who can help you with property damage, whether residential or commercial. Usually, when there is damage done by the elements, such as a hurricane, fire, water, or mold damage, you call the insurance company. And you would still do that in this situation. But, with a public adjuster, the responsibilities are lifted from your shoulders. All you have to do is work with the adjuster so they can complete the claim for you and speak with the insurance company on your behalf.
How Does a Public Adjuster Benefit You?
A public adjuster can benefit you in many ways, especially if you are filing hurricane damage claims in Florida. If you have ever had to file an insurance claim before, then you know how time-consuming and frustrating the process can be. Whatever claims the damage is for, the process is very much streamlined. You have to document the damage, fill out a claim, and have many calls with the insurance agent. There’s more to it than that, but this is the overall process when it comes to filing a claim. It’s also important o remember that no matter how small or large the damage is, the process is the same. With the help of a public adjuster, you do not have to go through most of these motions. Instead, we handle everything on your behalf. After you let the insurance company know that there is a problem, you’re done with the process until you get that check in the mail. A member of our team will fill out the claim for you. We also negotiate with the insurance company and make sure you are well compensated.
Can a Public Adjuster Help with Hurricane Damage?
The short answer is yes, but let us break down why. Public adjusters are especially helpful when it comes to hurricane damage. The reason is that while most kinds of damage are straight forward, hurricane damage isn’t. When you see mold, you know you have mold and who to call. When some people get hurricane damage, it’s much messier. There is often debris, glass everywhere, and various kinds of damage. All of this mess can make it hard to evaluate what’s damaged and what isn’t. Some people find that when they go to get repairs done, the insurance compensation wasn’t enough. This situation wasn’t necessarily the insurance companies fault. But rather a reflection of not recognizing the extent of the damage on the claim. It happens to even the meticulous people. When it comes to hurricane damage, documenting everything is a full-time gig. That is how a public adjuster helps. We accurately and efficiently get everything documented. You won’t need to stress about missing anything because we handle it with an expert’s touch.
