It has been two months since Hurricane Florence hit the shores of North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. The strong winds and turbulent rain over a period of three days caused major issues to our daily lives.
Since that dreadful day Florence made landfall, most homeowners and business owners have been left wondering what they are going to do when the insurance company doesn’t give much money to bring the property back to pre-loss condition.
As people continue to empty their homes of furniture, drywall, personal items and more and pile them out on the street, they are left wondering, What do we do now? We have a severely damaged home, no place to live, and our lives are in complete chaos. We have mold on our walls, clothing that is saturated and smells of mildew, and no money to live on.
The first initial thought would be to contact their insurance company.
So, most property owners immediately file claims with their respective insurance companies to find out that what they thought would be covered turns out to be covered for far less money than what would be actually needed. Property owners will need to become schooled in insurance terminology, how to file a claim, and how to communicate with the insurance adjuster at a moment’s notice and know their responsibility of policy terms and conditions.
What is a person to do?
When people finally receive their insurance checks, they realize that it cannot even cover the mitigation cost. You’re left alone with nowhere to turn.
Well, that is far from the truth.
What is needed is a person who will be an advocate on your behalf. That is where a public adjuster comes in.
We work on your behalf, handle all aspects of the claim, and address all issues due to the scope of the damage. We work with your insurance company to get you the most amount of money legally possible to make you whole again.
A public adjuster removes the stress, anxiety and sheer abundance of paperwork, phone calls and estimates from your shoulders, takes on all of that burden and, ultimately, negotiates with the carrier. As a public adjuster, we are licensed and trained to help identify damage from where it originated to where it ended up and everything in between.
Having someone on your side saves marriages, relationships and your hair, and it lowers your blood pressure. I have people who are so overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of paperwork, phone calls and estimates while taking care of work, family and their dwelling that they have absolutely no time to work their day-to-day job.
