Q: Why Do I Need Help In Filing An Insurance Claim?
A: The typical fire and flood policy contains hundreds of provisions, stipulations and riders. These are always changing. Most people do not know or understand these policy provisions. Most do not realize that the burden of proof is on them, the policy holder, to establish what is due to them from the insurance company. In fact, many representatives from the insurance companies prefer to work with our experienced staff rather than an inexperienced insured. We at Harris Claims Services not only have the confidence of our clients, but also that of the insurance company adjusters who recognize that we are professional public adjusters.
Q: Why Should I Hire Harris Claims Services To Obtain What Is Rightfully Due To Me?
A: The insurance company adjuster will offer to pay what he believes is due to you. That adjuster is employed by the insurance company. Remember, professionals can disagree on the cost and the extent of damage to property. We, as your exclusive representatives, will almost certainly view the damage as being higher than what the insurance company adjuster will. It’s simple. They are obligated to their employer, the insurance company. We are obligated to YOU, our client. With our experience and knowledge we will secure a more favorable settlement for you.
