When you file a property insurance claim your insurance company will send out an adjuster to see if the damage is covered and, if so, how much it is worth. It’s always a good idea to get a second opinion. Do you know what your claim is really worth? Even if the insurance company decides to pay your claim, do you think they want to pay the most money possible, or the smallest amount they can get away with?
Yes, you should question the insurance company’s damage estimate. Here are 3 reasons why.
- Insurance company adjusters may not properly value your damage. They may not thoroughly investigate and price “like kind and quality” which may undervalue your unique damage.
- Insurance company adjusters may overlook some of your damage or simply assume some damage is unrelated to the claim.
- Insurance company adjusters work for the insurance company.
