What Is A Public Adjuster?

A public adjuster is licensed, educated and trained in the policy coverage and state regulations and statutes that guide claims handling the
entitlements of the policyholder in first party property damage claims. Public adjusters work exclusively for the insured in an effort to achieve
a full financial recovery. Public adjusters, also known as PA’s are required to pass stringent certification examinations and attain surety bonds
