What is a Public Adjuster?
The Levine Group and its adjusters are licensed and bonded property damage experts on loss adjustments and recovery. Our firm works solely for the policyholder, not the insurance company. We assist you in preparing, filing, documenting, appraising, estimating, negotiating and managing the payments of insurance claims arising from your property damages. Whether you have a large commercial or residential claim or a smaller claim, we will fight on your behalf to maximize your claim and expedite the settlement process.
Why Should I hire a Public Adjuster?
As the property or business owner, you can certainly try and handle the claim on your own, but our team has expertise and understanding of policy language, construction, estimating, and knowledge of the industry standards and laws that will maximize your claim to its full potential. After Hurricane Sandy, there was an influx of claims that turned out to be handled unethically on the insurance companies behalf. The homeowner/business, trusting their insurance carriers to do the right thing, were essentially left on their own on numerous occasions stating that their claim was not covered. Insurance companies are known to deny valid claims, prolong the policyholders claim process, and confuse customers to avoid fair compensation.
Will my loss be settled faster with the services of a Public Adjuster?
Most individuals, unless highly familiar with insurance policies, have trouble understanding the technical terms and language of an insurance policy. Our adjusters will breakdown the policy and explain what’s covered to you and more importantly, keep you in the loop on YOUR claim. As your representation, we will make sure you adhere to all the policy terms and requirements within your policy.
Should I wait for the insurance company to make an offer before reaching out for your services?
The sooner The Levine Group gets involved the better. We will significantly reduce the stress of your claim. The experience and knowledge needed to accurately determine if a settlement offer is fair is quite substantial. Often, policyholders who do not use our services settle for a less without even realizing the true potential of dollars they could have received. The Levine Group will help you obtain the money you truly deserve and keep your time stress-free.
