When was the last time you read and understood the insurance policy that covers your house or business?
Many people have difficulty understanding the technical language of the insurance policy and the complicated procedures they must follow to comply with the policy's terms.
Most people don't realize that insurance company adjusters are trained professionals who represent the interests of the insurance company which employs them.
You can protect your interests by employing an accredited public adjuster whose sole responsibility is to serve you, the insured.
Accredited public insurance adjusters are retained for the adjustment of insured claims due to fire, wind, water, vandalism and other perils. The public insurance adjuster serves commercial businesses, financial institutions, professional firms, homeowners, and the general insuring public. We are experts who not only get the claims settled but also have a construction company to repair the property after the claims are settled.
If a loss occurs, you should give immediate consideration to engaging the services of a public insurance adjuster at HARRIS INSURANCE SERVICES. The questions and answers contained in this section will help you understand how our firm can help you through this time.
