What is a Public Adjuster
Public Adjusters are experts on property loss adjustment who are retained by policyholders to assist in preparing, filing and adjusting insurance claims. Employed exclusively by a policyholder who has sustained an insured loss, these professionals manage every detail of the claim, working closely with the insured to provide the most equitable and prompt settlement possible. A public adjuster inspects the loss site immediately, analyzes the damages, assembles claim support data, reviews the insured's coverage, determines current replacement costs and exclusively serves the client, not the insurance company.
Many NAPIA public adjusting firms have a long history of service to insureds and are very experienced in handling first party property insurance claims. Members are guided by a strict code of ethics and rules of professional conduct.
