what is a public adjuster?
A Public Adjuster (PA) represents you and your interests when you have an insurance claim on your business or home. The PA works for you, not the insurance company. PA’s put together the details for and assign dollar values to the claim on your behalf, ensuring that every dollar is captured in the claim.
why is it better to get a pa involved at the beginning of the claims process?
A PA will control the direction of the claim and develop strategies with you to maximize your pay-out. If a PA is involved at the beginning, control of the process remains with you rather than the insurance company. You can bring in a PA late in the game, but that is similar to going to trial without a lawyer. Once you lose, you can bring in a lawyer, but it is a much different situation.
