The shock of a home invasion in South Florida can make homeowners feel violated, unsafe and afraid to stay in their own homes. You want to be able to move on with your life and get the damage done to your house fixed as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, many Florida insurance companies don’t see the impact a home invasion has on you personally. Your claim is just a claim and your damage assessment is just a number. This is the experience local resident Dr. Bruno was subjected to when he tried to file his home invasion damage claim with Citizens Insurance Corporation of Florida.
“We went through a horrific experience in our home invasion robbery,” said Dr. Bruno. “This was a very traumatic experience for me and my wife. I spent a lot of time attempting to settle my insurance claim myself against Citizens Insurance Corporation. As a practicing neurologist, my time is precious and I would rather be giving care to my patients than wrestling for fairness from my insurance company.”
During the initial claim filing process, your insurance agent might try to offer a certain degree of sympathy and reassurance. However, while agents are the people who hear your story, they are not the ones who actually handle your claim. That falls onto claims adjusters who deal solely with the numbers. Specifically, they aim to minimize the cost of your claim for the insurance provider.
Whatever losses you’ve suffered are translated into dollars and cents and go through the tedious, often very inefficient claims processing system. This system is the same, whether your provider is Citizens Insurance, Universal Property & Casualty, USAA, Tower Hill Prime or any of the other companies prevalent in Florida.
Getting the Help You Need After a Home Invasion
If you would like face-to-face interaction with someone who will hear your story and fight for your cause, an experienced public adjuster is a valuable resource. Public adjusters have deep knowledge of the insurance industry and the claims filing process, providing helpful guidance and giving your claim the best chance at success.
“I want to thank you for your thorough attention to detail as you reconstructed my loss for presentation to my insurance company,” Dr. Bruno said of the work of Advocate Claims Public Adjusters. “The professional handling of my claim resulted in double what Citizens Insurance initially paid. The gentlemanly approach you took with Citizens was also most appreciated, as it is important to me to treat others with respect.”
Don’t become frustrated with your insurance company’s slow process and minimal payout. Call a public adjuster for the personal attention you need during a difficult time in your life.
