If you’re a Bucks County resident whose home or business was hit by a recent tornado or high wind storm, it’s important to get your roof or property inspected as soon as possible to determine the cost to make repairs. This is where a public adjuster like Vince Perri can be invaluable.
A public adjuster is someone who represents an insured resident or business owner when they need to file an insurance claim. They advocate for their clients in dealing with the insurance company and can negotiate on their behalf to ensure a fair settlement.
If you suspect storm damage to your property, contact your insurer and let them know you may have a claim. The insurance company will then send their adjuster to the property to inspect the damage and give a settlement offer if the damage is covered by the policy.
However, if you have a public adjuster on your side, they can negotiate with the insurance company adjuster to ensure that the property is restored to its pre-storm condition. This is important, as some damage may not be immediately visible or may cause further damage if not addressed quickly.
Perri advises that you take photos of the damage, keep the damaged items, and get your own documented estimate for the cost of repairs. Once you have this information, make repairs if you can so as not to cause further damage, but also provide any requested information to the insurance company without delay.
Finally, don’t be afraid of insurance rate increases. According to Harry Kantor of Citywide Public Adjusting, a good settlement for a major claim would far outweigh any rate increase. So, if you suspect storm damage to your property, don’t delay – contact a public adjuster like Vince Perri to ensure that your interests are represented and your property is restored to its pre-storm condition.
