Three Tips for Handling Insurance Adjusters

Three tips for handling insurance adjusters during the claim process. One, videotape the inspection. It is good evidence of the inspection that you can use later to refute insurance defenses that allege failure to cooperate or failure to show your property. Two, defer to any hired professionals like your attorney, public adjuster, contractor, etc. when it comes to the language in your insurance policy, the scope of the damage, or the causation of the damage. Three, keep all communications with the adjuster in writing. In other words, you can have oral communications, but make sure to document them afterward. Got questions? I suggest consulting with an experienced property claims attorney.
