FAQWhat You Want to Know About Your Insurance Claim Adjusters
What exactly is a public adjuster?
A public adjuster is licensed by a particular U.S. state and hired by the policyholder to negotiate and settle an insurance claim on behalf of the policyholder. A public adjuster does not work for the insurance company. Instead they assist you, the insured, in preparing, filing, and negotiating a claim. Moreover, since a public adjuster represents the policyholder (and does not work for the insurance company), a public adjuster acts as a strong advocate for the policyholder in attempting to ensure the policyholder successfully settles his or her insurance claim.
