  • Claims expertise: Insurance policies are complex and can easily be misinterpreted. Having someone to play on your team that is familiar with the complicated language of the insurance policy will make everything easier for you. 
  • Protect your rights as a policyholder: having a veteran Public Adjuster, someone who is acquainted with the language, will give you an advantage in case your claim is denied. 
  • Ensure fair value for your claim: An OPAGGA study (Office of Program and Policy Analysis & Government Accountability) in Florida showed that Public Adjusters negotiate up to a 747% larger insurance company settlement for commercial business and homeowner insurance property loss claims than the insurance company was planning to pay for. 

For the reopening of a claim, a visit from the public appraiser must be made, it will be carried out on their property where they will review each document in detail, the estimate and policy of your insurance and all the repair records that were carried out, once all of this has been evaluated, the public appraiser will decide if the claim can be opened or not, if the claim can be reopened, the appraiser will contact your insurance and then re-evaluate the damage to your property.
