Choosing The Wrong Public Adjuster
Not all public adjusters are educated to the extent others may be. There are public adjusters who qualified to handle specific sizes and types of claims and others who may jeopardize your benefits. Make an informed decision on who will work in your best interest.
Before retaining any public adjuster you should;
1. conduct a careful and critical examination of all references for their legitimacy,
2. check for the adjusters’ errors, omissions and liability coverages,
3. Call the NYS-DFS to check the licensing status of the individual soliciting your business and the exact spelling of the company name advertising
