Fire Damage Public Adjuster in Linwood, NJ

No one ever expects to have a fire in his or her home or place of business. An unexpected fire can result from electrical problems, appliance failure, and kitchen grease, lightning strike to name a few. A fire insurance claim can often be the most complex type of property loss to navigate. While following the lead of the claim adjuster from your insurance company may seem like the path of least resistance, doing so will often lead to settlement delays, a grossly under-adjusted settlement and limited options for rebuilding and restoring your property and possessions. A public adjuster from Yeager Public Adjusting will work with you side by side, lead the process and ask the questions; because we’ve done this before and know you have not. (The worst mistake you can make, is allowing the carrier who’s paying you to determine what THEY owe. YPA sets the bar high and shows them what you are actually entitled too.)

Do You really have time to over see the full process and ensure you are getting what you should?
