When my roof took damage due to a storm in the area, my homeowners insurance company did not want to give me a very big payout for the claim. This was something that was quite troubling to me, as the amount that they were willing to pay out did not seem as though it was going to cover all of the expenses that needed to be covered. This led me into a situation in which I felt like there was no place to turn. I felt as though my back was against the wall, and I did not know what I ought to do. That was when a friend of mine told me about a claims adjuster that specializes in working with policy holders rather than the insurance companies themselves. This means that you are more likely to get more out of your claim because they are trying to do what is best for you instead of what is best for the insurance company.
After visiting with this adjuster, my claim was worked in a way that got me a much bigger settlement than the insurance company was originally willing to offer. This meant that I was able to cover all of the expenses that came with the roof damage rather than having to come out of pocket at all. I am very thankful that my friend pointed me in this direction, and now I know exactly what I ought to do if I ever find myself in a similar situation again.
If you have filed an insurance claim and are not getting the insurance settlement that you had hoped for, I think that you too ought to look into getting an adjuster to help you out in order to see if you can get a bigger settlement.
