Patient Homeowner Gets Substantial Settlement by Choosing the Right Public Adjuster after Largo, FL Fire Loss

Patient Homeowner Gets Substantial Settlement by Choosing the Right Public Adjuster after Largo, FL Fire Loss

On May 11, 2014 a serious electrical fire broke-out in the home of a Clearwater Largo, FL family causing significant fire, water, and smoke damage to the building and personal property.  During and after the fire was extinguished many contractors and public adjuster chasers offering their services bombarded the homeowners with confusing information and high pressure sales tactics. Sadly, this is becoming a recurring theme when fires occur. We continue to believe that property owners need to realize that it is in their best interest to stay away from the majority of these solicitors until they have done their due diligence and have coordinated plan of action in place. They must also be wary not to sign any contract that assigns the entire insurance claim over to a stranger who now owns the proceeds of their claim. In our industry this language is called Assignment of Benefits.

Public Adjuster Assists Condominium Board Negotiate Fire Claim and Assignment of Benefits Issue

Public Adjuster Assists Condominium Board Negotiate Fire Claim and Assignment of Benefits Issue

On December 1, 2012 something caught fire on the back balcony of this two story condominium complex located on Treasure Island, FL. resulting in fire, water, and smoke damage to the property. Immediately after the fire, the Condominium Board decided to hire a contractor to repair the damage.  Normally, this is the typical procedure many COA’s take. However, in this claim, there were many others issues complicating the loss, which the contractor could not legally address.  Specifically, there were many insurance claim adjusting issues with respect to the extent of the fire and smoke damage in addition to Law & Ordinance & Code Upgrade requirements the were being enforced by the county building department.  Pursuant to the Florida SB408 (Chapter 2011-39) there are provisions that strictly prohibits contractors from adjusting insurance claims unless the contractor also holds a public adjuster license. However, the new law also prevents contractors holding a public adjuster license from doing any type of reconstruction, repair, or restoration of damaged property on the same loss, since it would represents a clear conflict of interest.
