Of course in the aftermath of a storm of this magnitude there will likely be storm damages. If you are affected by Hurricane Irene, please know that our prayers go out to you first and foremost. If it is at all possible to get out of the area of impact for the duration of the storm we encourage you to do so. When the storm passes, and you find that you need assistance recovering from your losses we hope that you will consider hiring a public adjuster to inspect your property damage. Public adjusters represent you, the insured, and not the insurance companies. A public adjuster examines your real property damage and helps you to get a fair claims settlement with your insurance company. Don’t settle for less than what is right and fair. Have a public adjuster offer you a second opinion on what he feels in his professional experience is the maximum settlement.
