If you were wise enough to purchase business interruption insurance, it will most likely prove to be the most valuable form of coverage your business has. Business interruption claims are very complicated and time-consuming to handle on your own. We at Florida’s Best Public Adjusters can offer complete claims handling services. Our staff has two decades of experience in handling small and large business interruption claims.
At Florida’s Best Public Adjusters, we understand that business interruption claim is an extraordinary event and definitely not something you deal with every day.
Bottom Line: We represent you and not the insurance company. Your insurance company’s brokers/sales agents handed you a lengthy document that is there to protect them and not you. The agent or broker who sold you your policy represents the insurance company and not you. According to Florida State Statutes, aside from yourself, there are only two entities that can represent you with claims and dealings with your insurance company. Those two are either an attorney or a Public Adjuster (PA).
We don’t represent you if we can’t win because we don’t get paid unless you do!
According to the Florida Legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability-OPPAGA, Policyholders who hired public adjusters (PA) for non-catastrophic claims received 574% more money than those who did not hire a PA. Policyholders who hired public adjusters for Hurricane related claims received 747% more money.
Insurance companies have teams of adjusters, engineers, claims managers and preferred contractors that represent their interests.
