TOP 5 MYTHS ABOUT PUBLIC ADJUSTERS, BUSTED!

We provide document proof that retaining the services of a public adjuster shortly after a loss will generate a settlement far greater that handling a claim without representation.

While insurance companies tend to dislike it when you hire a public adjuster (because they end up paying out 747{d5b23128aecce300cdcaa2451740d7a4bce2573909922cfcf6d0e893c50f3cf4} more), they cannot go up on your insurance premium because of that reason. If insurance premiums are raised, it’s usually when may claims are being filed in one small area and the entire region’s premiums will go up, not just yours.

While your insurance carrier can choose to non-renew your policy for ANY reason they see fit after your policy period is up, they cannot suddenly drop your coverage because you’ve decided to hire an advocate. Usually carriers only drop coverage if you stop paying your premiums or a loss is deemed negligent on your part.

Hiring a public adjuster will, in fact, will shorten the time it takes to settle a claim. Public adjusters are skilled at appropriately putting pressure on the insurance company and its representatives. Moreover, the only time an insurance company wants to settle a claim quickly is when it sees an opportunity to settle a claim for less that its full value.

FALSE: Public adjusters are licensed by the state through the Department of Insurance. They have passed a rigorous state exam and received one year of training before they are issued their license, and are bonded by state where they practice. Insurance Code – INS 15006. (a) No person shall engage in a business regulated by this chapter, or act or assume to act as, or represent himself or herself to, a licensee unless he or she is licensed under this chapter. 15007 ­­– A public insurance adjuster within the meaning of this chapter is a person who, for compensation, acts on behalf of or aids in any manner, an insured in negotiating for or effecting the settlement of a claim for loss or damage. An Insured, in the State of California, who witnesses or experiences an overly aggressive contractor trying to represent himself as a Public Adjuster (without a license) should immediately report the contractor to the DOI. http://www.insurance.ca.gov
