Claim Form

Central to the work of the professional and licensed insurance adjusters is to support the holder of the insurance policy and represent them on their insurance claims. Filing a claim can be a hassle for policyholders, who may also need assistance with understanding their coverage. After a homeowner submits a claim to their insurance company, a Tennessee public adjuster steps in to advocate on their behalf and help them put their claim in order and perfect it. 

An adjuster works to resolve the insurance claim with the insurance company. There are many steps in the claims process that a policyholder can delegate out to an experienced public adjuster to minimize the amount of stress on them, especially after a hard loss. Public adjusters also guide policyholders and provide them information on what they are responsible for.

Can I afford a public insurance adjuster?

Much like attorneys, public adjusters work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they do not get paid unless you recover the money you need from the insurance company. They will charge a certain percentage of your overall settlement to cover the cost of the services that they have provided. But unlike attorneys who may charge a large percentage of their client’s settlement, public adjusters charge somewhere between 10% and 30% for claims.

This also means that you as the policyholder are taking on a risk by hiring a public adjuster. If any percentage of your insurance money is going to a public adjuster then you want to ensure that it is someone who is going to get you the most out of your claim.

Should I hire an attorney or a public adjuster?

A public adjuster is also more hands-on than a lawyer. A lawyer will have to send someone to your property to create an estimate. That person is usually a contractor who doesn’t know the law but knows a lot about construction. A public adjuster is a one-stop-shop with the legal and construction knowledge to help clients navigate the claims process.

Lastly, in order for lawyers to be profitable, they often practice a few areas of law. That means that they may handle some other types of cases. At Hope Public Adjusters, we only work to represent the policyholder in a claim. Call us today to speak to one of our Tennessee public adjusters.
