WHAT IS PRE-EXISTING DAMAGE, AND HOW TO APPROACH IT AS A PUBLIC ADJUSTER?
What do you do if a client tells you the kitchen cabinets suffered water damage two years ago, and now they heard they could get paid?
Also, how is that different from another client saying the roof damage wasn’t there the last time they checked six months ago?
I can safely say that pre-existing damage is a claim killer and a reason for many fraudulent claims.
In this week’s YouTube video, you will learn about pre-existing damage and what you should consider when filing a claim.
More specifically, you will learn you should:
👉 Determine if the damage was sudden and accidental, and walk out if it wasn’t.
👉 Educate your client to take photos before a significant wind event, like a storm or hurricane.
👉 Use these concepts to offer a service to large commercial clients.
The final point, or offering commercial property owners a pre-loss risk assessment, is a sure way to get closer to large commercial claims and grow your public adjusting firm.
Don’t know what a pre-loss risk assessment is?
