Should I use a public adjuster for storm damage?

When you notify the insurance company of your claim, the insurance company assigns one of their adjusters to evaluate the storm damage and looks out for their interests. It is logical that you should have an adjuster of your own to take care of you and your interests. If you are like most people, you have not really read, nor do you fully understand your insurance policy provisions. You may not know everything to which you are rightfully entitled under the terms and provisions of your insurance policy for storm damage to your property.

Marinilli Associates understands your insurance policy completely, and we make sure that we ask for and that you receive, everything that you deserve and paid premiums for, from your insurance company. Just as you hire a professional when you have a medical, legal, or financial problem, so should you hire a professional who represents you, and you alone, when you have an insurance claim for storm damage.

What can you expect from Marinilli Associates?

Marinilli Associates assists with documenting, preparing, and settling Wind Damage Claims after your property has suffered windstorm and hurricane damage.

Windstorms and hurricanes can create massive destruction. When wind damage occurs, it can open the door to complicated ambiguities with insurance coverage during the adjustment process. In the aftermath of a disaster, many priorities come to mind:

Protecting your property.
Getting your business or home back to normal.
Securing adequate financial recovery.

How do I get what I’m entitled to from my Storm Damage Insurance Claim?

Many homeowners and business owners do not collect all the money they are entitled to simply because they don’t know the ins-and-outs of the insurance claim process. Wind damage insurance claims can be a hassle whether the damage to your property is large or small. Important things to remember about windstorm losses:

Differences between wind and flood coverage can make recovery complex.
Widespread disasters spread claim representatives thin, making resolution difficult.
Consider hiring a public adjuster to make a full recovery.

A public adjuster will work exclusively for you, the policyholder, and not the insurance company in filing and settling a wind damage insurance claim. Whether or not you choose to enlist the help of a public adjuster, it is your responsibility as the policyholder to document and prove your wind damage claim to your insurance company. If your property has suffered windstorm or hurricane damage, contact Marinilli Associates for assistance with your insurance claim.
