What is a Public Adjuster and How Can They Help You?
A public adjuster works for you, the policy holder, not the insurance company. By hiring a public adjuster after a loss, you will have a partner on your side, advocating your claim to the insurance company. Our firm helps residential communities and homeowners throughout Wisconsin recover after disaster hits. Keeping your best interests in mind, our team will only take your case if we can help add value to your claim or secure a substantial settlement on your behalf.
Types of Adjusters
In addition to a public adjuster, there are also company adjusters and independent adjusters. Neither of these adjusters works for the policyholder, specifically:
- Company (Insurance) Adjuster – works for your insurance company. They are representing your insurance company’s best interests.
- Independent Adjuster – also works for insurance companies. They are called independent because they are not employed by your insurance company – rather they work for an independent firm, representing multiple insurance companies.
After you suffer a loss, a reputable public adjuster should be one of the first people you contact. At Steven C. Schwed & Associates, we navigate the complex claims process on your behalf, helping you recover after a loss.
Public Insurance Adjusters Fighting for Wisconsin Home Owners
Home and property loss is devastating and overwhelming. The period of time following a loss due to fire, flood, tornado or any other type of catastrophe is stressful and chaotic.
