With proper documentation, hiring a Public Insurance Adjuster to represent your interest can only strengthen your insurance claim.

5. The fifth step requires patience. It usually is the most challenging part as the insurance company will take the time they need to assess your Insurance claim and insurance damage.
After their inspection is complete, the final step in the insurance claims process is receiving your initial insurance payment or having your insurance claim denied.
If your claim is denied, the process is not necessarily over as a public insurance adjuster can attempt to overturn the denial by using their field experience and attention to detail.
This is the step where you would receive a denial letter explaining why the insurance company refuses to cover the damages to your home or commercial business insurance claim.
