With over a half million insured homes and businesses, Universal Property & Casualty Insurance Company is the second largest insurance company in the State of Florida. As a percentage, Universal handles 9.5% of the insurance accounts held in Florida. Interestingly, Universal Property has been a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business since August 25, 2011.
“But, that’s no reason to call them first when making a claim for property damage such as water damage, mold damage, hurricane and wind damage, fire and smoke damage, roof damage, vandalism, theft, and lightening,” says Steven Venook, founder of Advocate Claims Public Adjusters.
“Often it makes much more sense to call a public adjuster first,” continued Venook, who went on to explain why.
“I am a Public Insurance Adjuster. That means I am on your side, and not on the side of the insurance company. Insurance companies are represented by their insurance adjusters working only for the insurance company, NOT FOR YOU. As a Public Insurance Adjuster, I work for you to reach a fair settlement, which is often thousands of dollars more than the settlement offered by your insurance company.
Your insurance company may not want to pay you a fair settlement! Many of them prefer to pay you the minimum settlement. Why? Because they are concerned mainly with their own bottom line profits! This is a basic fact.
And amazingly, the first thing that most people do when they have a claim for property damage is to call their insurance company! Why do so many people do this? Because they are conditioned by their insurance companies’ propaganda to call them first.
You wouldn’t ask an IRS agent to do your taxes! Why should you change your normal reaction when you need to make a property damage claim? Because it’s in your own best interest to protect yourself and your pocketbook.
It may amaze you to learn that if we don’t recover a settlement, you don’t pay a dime. There is never an advance cost to you!”
