Due to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, as well as what is projected in Florida during Hurricane Irma’s landfall, the need for public insurance adjusters is unprecedented in these areas of the United States. Public adjusters are important to the recovery process for areas impacted by natural disasters due to their involvement in insurance claims. In cases such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many adjusters are even brought in from out-of-state due to the extent of the damage.
The role of public adjusters in times of tragedy
With damages from Harvey and Irma estimated to be nearly $300 billion, insurance adjusters will be highly sought after to help resolve the number of claims that are sure to arise in the weeks and months ahead. Public insurance adjusters help settle claims of damages for people who are insured under a fire, homeowner, flood, tenant, or condominium insurance policy. The insurance adjuster is also able to help those who have sustained damages to find reputable contractors in the area for reconstruction.
If you are looking to help settle claims as a public insurance adjuster and need a license in Florida, Georgia or Texas, you must first obtain a surety bond.
