In the Aftermath of a Dallas Tornado: A Public Service Announcement, Homeowners Need to Know About Their Rights
State Public Adjuster, Randell Smith is an experienced public adjuster. Randell reports that many people impacted by ferocious storms like the one that hit Dallas today have never heard of the services of a public adjuster. All too often the insured party makes a claim on damages and settles for what the insurance company offers. That is why they call them settlements. But what the homeowner does not realize is that these “settlements” are not always equitable.
One homeowner reported that TWIA (Texas Windstorm Insurance Association) only settled for a quarter of what it would cost to repair damages to his roof. State Public Adjuster, Randel Smith took the case and was able to settle for a considerable amount more than what the insurance company was willing to pay initially. In fact, the homeowner not only got enough to cover the damages to the roof and replace the entire roof, but was then able to make secondary repairs to the home and other structures.
The fact is that a Public adjuster can help you get more on your insurance settlement that you can likely get on your own. This is because the public adjuster works for you and not the insurance company! When the insurance company sends out their adjuster to report damages back to the insurance company, they are likely to report an amount that is much less than what the actual damages are. They have a vested interest in getting as little for the homeowner as possible.
On the other-hand, the Public Adjuster is interested in serving you! They are employed by you and paid by you! They have a vested interest in getting you more on your claim as they recieve payment on a percentage of what you are awarded.
If you have have suffered damages to property as a result of the recent Dallas Tornadoes you need an aggressive Public Adjuster who will go to work for you to get you what you deserve on your insurance claim settlement. Don’t trust just anyone to the job. Call Randell Smith State Public Adjuster.
