Policyholder Question – Public Adjuster Fee
This is a frequent question we get after a policyholder has tried to handle their own claim and learns the settlement amount will not return their property to its prior condition.
Q. Does a public adjuster get paid on the full amount of the claim or just the disputed amount?
A. If a prior payment was made before the PA was hired, the PA should not be paid a fee on that amount. Basically, a PA should only be paid on new money they were able to recover after they were hired. Hope this answers your question.
