Insurance Claim Preferred Vendors – A Growing Insurance Company Tactic

We want to thank Orlando public adjuster Brad Barrett for contributing this insurance claim blog.
When a policyholder experiences a loss, one of the first things they are supposed to do is contact the insurance company to report a claim. What we are being told by some policyholders, is that one of the first things some claims departments are doing is to instruct them not to speak with anyone (especially a Public Adjuster) and that they will be sending out their adjuster and their “approved” contractor to review the claim. This is a blatant effort to cut out public adjusters and independent restoration firms. Please be informed consumer, this activity in itself is a red flag when your insurance company instructs you not to discuss the claim with anyone. Please get online, do your research, and make sure you are hiring vendors that will represent your best interests and restore your property to its original condition.

If you have questions regarding any property insurance claim related issues please call 800.321.4488 or contact us to submit a question to one of our public adjuster or insurance claim experts.
