Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2014 -- There is no telling what type of weather the summer season will bring this year, but one thing is for certain: homeowners need to make sure they are covered in the events of a catastrophic event. Insurance adjusters, like AAA Public Adjusters, play an intricate role in a homeowner’s road to recovery after a hurricane, fire, flood, or major disaster occurs.
Many homeowners may not realize the importance of being covered, which is why AAA Public Adjusters explains the steps to take after a major storm has damaged a home. The insured’s, or homeowner’s insurance company will dispatch its own adjuster to the home to assess any damages. The adjuster will also determine settlement amount based on the contract of the homeowner’s policy.
According to AAA Public Adjusters, it is important for homeowners to document any losses including composing lists of damage, videos and photos as well. Repairs should be delayed until after an adjuster has visited the property. One thing to remember is that insurance adjusters work for the insurer and not the insured. They have no interest in keeping homeowners from getting the settlement they deserve.
One option for homeowners who want to make sure they receive the compensation they are entitled to can do is hire a public adjuster. A public adjuster works for the homeowner, not the insurance company. They can come out to the property, assess the damage left and sort through the paperwork to help homeowners file their claim properly.
AAA Public Adjusters offers some tips on filing a claim. Along with documenting everything, and avoiding making repairs until the adjuster arrives, homeowners should also offer any paperwork including receipts to determine the value of a damaged item. Homeowners are also encouraged to exchange contact and business information and ask questions if something in the policy is not understood. At any time if a homeowner is not satisfied, he or she can hire a public insurance adjuster to settle a claim.
