Promises, Promises, Promises

Promises of good faith claims handling and outstanding customer service are pledges often made by insurance companies.  Sadly, the reality of the policy sold in relation to this goal is often lacking. Property insurance companies today compete against each other in an oligopoly that creates an incentive for some insurers to cheat in their claims handling practices.

Bad faith jury verdicts of improper claims-handling practices fuel policyholder distrust, uncertainty, loss of control, and massive financial stress.  Even the Supreme Court of Texas has been quoted saying, “the insurance claim process is inherently adversarial. The adversarial process begins as soon as a claim is filed and ends only when the resolution of the claim is finally determined and accepted by the parties.” Barbara Techs. Corp. v. State Farm Lloyds

Truth, Facts, Duties

The truth is, policyholders carry the burden of proof while insurers have a duty to perform a good faith claims investigation.   Therein lies the rub.  Adjusting insurance claims have an inherent conflict of interest built into the process.  The insurance company and its representatives represent the insurer’s interests, not the policyholders.   Insurance companies also typically have both shareholders and policyholders.

Many policyholders have certainly felt the urge to hire an attorney, file a lawsuit to sue their insurance company, go through subpoenas, depositions, discovery, mediation and court when they are convinced their insurer has acted in bad faith. 

What many policyholders have found is that the legal process takes a lot of time, and adds stress.

Settling Property Damage Insurance Claims the Hard Way!

If you need help on a claim, or you are not totally comfortable with what needs to be done, ask for help!  It’s better to recuse yourself than do harm through ignorance.

Unfair Claim Settlement Practices

Every state’s insurance department has made an effort to prohibit unfair insurance practices and protect the interests of consumers. What is considered fair or unfair claims practice is regulated by all states in which claims practices are deployed. The national program of regulation is known as the National Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act, and every state has its own version.

Most state insurance law prohibits some very general behaviors or practices; yet these behaviors can result in very significant penalties if a carrier or adjuster engages in them:

  • failing to act promptly;
  • denying claims without conducting a reasonable investigation;
  • failing to give an insured/claimant a response (i.e. agree to pay or deny) to a claim;
  • failing to explain a denial in writing.

You wouldn’t think that complying with these requirements would be that difficult, yet you would be surprised how many don’t.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

A public adjuster is a licensed insurance professional who specializes in helping policyholders navigate the complex process of filing and negotiating property damage insurance claims. Public adjusters represent the policyholder’s interests, not the insurance company’s, and work to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim. Their duties include evaluating the damage, reviewing the insurance policy, preparing a detailed claim, and negotiating with the insurance company on behalf of the policyholder.
You should consider hiring a public adjuster if you are facing a large or complex property damage insurance claim, such as those resulting from fire, water, or storm damage. Public adjusters are particularly helpful when the scope of the damages is unclear, the insurance company’s offer seems insufficient, or there are disputes about the cause or extent of the damage. Hiring a public adjuster early in the claims process can help ensure that your claim is properly documented, and your interests are well-represented throughout the process.
Public adjusters typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they successfully recover a settlement for you. Their fee is usually a percentage of the total settlement amount, which is agreed upon in advance. This percentage can vary depending on the complexity of the claim and the location, but it usually ranges from 5% to 15% of the total settlement.
Insurance company adjusters are employed by the insurance company and work to protect the company’s interests. Their primary goal is to evaluate the claim and determine the amount the insurance company is liable to pay, which may not always align with the policyholder’s best interests. On the other hand, public adjusters are independent professionals who work exclusively on behalf of the policyholder. Their primary goal is to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim.
While insurance agents and brokers can provide valuable guidance and assistance in filing an insurance claim, they may not have the specialized expertise required to manage complex property damage claims. Public adjusters have extensive experience in assessing damages, interpreting insurance policies, and negotiating with insurance companies, which makes them better equipped to handle large or complicated claims. Hiring a public adjuster can be especially beneficial if you are not satisfied with the settlement offer from your insurance company or if you are facing disputes regarding the cause or extent of the damage.
