Lauderdale By The Sea Public Adjusters provides complete Public Adjusting services. When a residential owner suffers a property insurance claim, a complexity of circumstances are created. For a majority of people they may have no or limited past experiences in dealing with such an event. Depending on the size of the claim, the insured may also need to find temporary housing.
Settling an insurance claim calls for meetings with insurance company’s adjusters and contractors and many hours of preparing inventories as well as documenting lost or damaged items. Following preparation of the inventory of those lost or damaged items, the insured will need to establish the cost to replace those lost or damaged items. Additionally, the necessary meetings and inventory documentation may require the insured to take precious time away from work and family – time that would better be spent managing the trauma associated with an insurance claim and focusing one’s life back towards recovery.
Other dilemmas residential owners would not normally know how to deal with are issues like depreciation, replacement versus repair of damaged goods, distinguishing repairable from total loss items and preparing/submitting costs for living expenses. In situations where a damaged item should be replaced and not cleaned, the insurance company is entitled to try to clean it and may require this procedure prior to replacing the item. However, if after cleaning, the work is still not acceptable, the insured may not have enough coverage to replace the item. Lauderdale By The Sea Public Adjusters knows just how to protect the insured in these situations, even if it means exceeding policy limits.
