Public adjusters are important in property loss claims for several reasons, but chiefly because of how quickly they can get property replaced.
This does not mean, though, that you must use a public adjuster. You can have an independent adjuster do the work for you. The important thing to look for in having an adjuster is that you understand exactly what is involved with the work. If you are hiring an adjuster because you are in the process of rebuilding or even remodeling a room, you should make sure that the adjuster is familiar with the laws regarding the construction of the room and the use of the room.
When you are working with a public adjuster, you should also make sure that the adjuster is familiar with the law regarding damages for personal injuries and medical bills. If you have a policy that covers you for this, then you are covered if you suffer a personal injury or suffer any medical bills from the disaster.
If you are a renter with a policy, this is even more important to make sure that the adjuster will not refuse to pay your insurance claim. If the renter’s insurance company is less willing to pay than yours, then you have no recourse. You can file a lawsuit and hope that your legal claims are heard before the case is dismissed.
For a place that is being renovated or reconstructed, you should make sure that the public adjuster is not on the construction crew. This is a very dangerous situation. You could be using dangerous materials such as vinyl flooring and carpets. If you are using carpets and flooring, you should also make sure that your contractor is trained and has the appropriate equipment to repair, reconstruct or refinish the carpet.
If you are the renter, then you should also make sure that you don’t leave your furniture out for repair or renovation. This is especially true if you are using flooring and carpeting that is likely to be damaged. There may be a neglect of the shipping bill which could lead to a lawsuit.
It is better to ask your adjuster to take care of the packing and shipping for you. This may save you money if they are better with handling packages and delivering things to you than you are with packing and delivering your own things. They may be able to ask the carpenter to deliver the new flooring or carpeting if you will be replacing or repairing the floors or carpets. If you are renting the new flooring and carpeting, then you will want to do your best to ensure that the contractor has the proper permits and training to install them.
If you are the renter, then you should ask the contractor to pack and deliver your furniture to you. This may save you extra expenses and avoid a late fee if you pay the furniture packing and delivery within the specified time frame. The furniture packing and delivery could also save you the trouble of having to take it home and rearrange it before you can install it. As mentioned above, your contractor may be paid for by the rent, and if you pay within the specified time, then you won’t have to worry about late fees and other such fees.
