Most people facing the daunting task of filing a fire claim do not have a working knowledge of the fire insurance claim process. In fact, they don’t fully understand their insurance policy. What’s the 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. They assume, trust and hope that the adjuster will serve their best interests. Unfortunately, the insurance company employs the adjuster it send out. Above all, insurance companies are a business. The claim adjuster’s job is to minimize the financial outlay of their employer, not maximize claim settlements.
Whether fire significantly damages the entirety of a property, or just a small part, there are policy benefits that are too often overlooked. In other words, settlement dollars stay with the insurance company instead of the claimant’s bank account. Or worse, your claim is unjustly denied, delayed or underpaid. Did you know that most policies entitle a claimant to collect up to 35% OVER POLICY LIMITS in the event of a total 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 the damage to the insurance company. This is a task which requires analyzing the policy, calculations, submitting paperwork and compiling lists. On top of the loss you’ve suffered, it’s quite an undertaking. In fact, 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.
In the aftermath of a fire, partnering with a seasoned public adjuster can be a welcome relief. Above all, a good public adjuster can win you a fast and fair settlement. A settlement that reflects every penny that your policy affords and dictates, with the least amount of hassle to you.
