On the
Insurance Claims Process

Claim documentation:  This is the single most important & most neglected step in the claims process.

Public Adjusters are employed exclusively by a policyholder to advocate for them only and have absolutely no affiliation with insurance companies.

The Unit Cost Pricing method was developed many years ago to make estimating insurance losses much quicker and more efficient.

Insurance Adjusters Helping the Public is an information resource compiled by Insurance Adjusters in an effort to help educate the public to the end that consumers may receive what is fair on their property damage insurance claims.

There are numerous valuable insurance claims tools listed above as well as links to sites that you should know about if you are involved in a property damage claim or somehow affiliated with the insurance industry.

3.  Water Damage Claims
