Most people facing the daunting task of filing a fire insurance claim do not have a working knowledge of their insurance coverage. They don’t fully understand their insurance policy entitlement: what’s covered? What’s not? What is the cost to repair after a fire or the cost to rebuild?
Instead, they rely on their insurance company, assuming, trusting, and hoping that its adjuster will serve their best interests. Unfortunately, the independent adjuster the insurance company sends out is employed by or contracted by the insurance company. Fire Insurance companies are a business and their claim adjusters’ job is to minimize the financial outlay of their employers, not maximize your fire insurance claim settlement.
And whether fire significantly damages or even destroys a single room, a home, an apartment building or an office, there are policy benefits, which affect the structure settlement that are overlooked too often. When you don’t know the nuances of these benefits and, consequently, don’t apply them or solely trust the independent adjuster your insurance company sends out, the value of estimates and insurance claim settlements may be much lower than your coverage warrants or that which you’re entitled for a fire loss
It’s not until long after a fire has devastated your home that the proverbial dust begins to settle. You’re responsible for documenting and proving your property damage claim to the insurance company—a task that means analyzing the industry jargon and calculations and compiling lists. On top of the loss you’ve suffered. It’s an undertaking. You’re consumed with the paperwork. You don’t even know where to start. Most of our clients have told us that the insurance claim process after a fire or other major loss is as devastating and stressful as the fire or disaster itself.
That’s why, in the aftermath of a fire, partnering with a seasoned public adjuster can be a welcome relief. When you work side-by-side, with a professional who’s on your side who is looking out for your best interests and not that of the insurance compnay, you are closer to getting what you deserve—in fewer, easier steps– the largest possible insurance claim settlement that your policy of insurance dictates.
