Insurance Adjusters Are Not Always On Your Side
Insurance adjusters, while they can be pleasant and friendly, they ultimately work for the insurance company, not the homeowner. This is why the States have allowed public adjusters to legally help represent the insured.
Most homeowners have limited knowledge of the claim process from; how much are they owed, and how to get what they are owed. Public Adjusters solely represent the insured (homeowner and business-owners.) When the insured attempts to do it on their own, they often get less than 50% of what is actually owed. The great thing about hiring a public adjuster is that if they can't help you, then you don't pay.
