Why Hire a Public Adjuster?
It is up to you to prove your loss, not the Insurance Company.
The typical insurance policy contains numerous provisions and stipulations. It also contains various forms and endorsements that are constantly changing and most insured have difficulty understanding them. There are certain policy conditions that must be satisfied, failure to do so could reduce your settlement amount of even cause your claim to be denied.
A Public Adjuster has the experience, knowledge and expertise to obtain your maximum entitlements under your policy.
Just because the Insurance Company's adjuster makes a statement does not mean that it is fact or true. It is not uncommon for the Insurance Company to misinterpret their own insurance policy or forget to apply case law or Florida Statutes that supersedes their policy. Frankly, letting the Insurance Company's adjuster determine what you are entitled to is comparable to getting a divorce and letting your spouse's Attorney dictate your entitlements.

The numbers quoted by the article were quite shocking and beyond even my own expectations. To put it plain and simple, the article stressed that in comparing claims filed with Citizens Insurance, those using a Public Adjuster received 574% more than those not using a Public Adjuster and, furthermore, those numbers increased to 747% more on catastrophe claims such as those filed in 2005 for Hurricane damage.
