Your first call to a Public Insurance Adjuster can be one of the most important calls you will make. The Public Adjuster’s job is to analyze, estimate, and document your loss. Then, we negotiate your best settlement with the insurance company.
Many people don’t know this industry exists and think, “Oh, my insurance company will take care of me.” What individuals don’t recognize is that the insurance company’s adjuster works to protect their interests. It is in your best interests to have someone professionally representing yours.
Upon calling a Public Adjuster, there should be no charge for a consultation. The Public Adjuster is paid a percentage of the settlement. Generally, 10% is a reasonable charge, though some circumstances warrant a different rate.

$3.2 Million Verdict in 2010 Freak Phoenix Hail Storm Lawsuit
– Almost six years after a freak hail storm pounded cars, homes, and almost everything else in Phoenix, Arizona, The Travelers Indemnity Company will finally have to make good on at least one of the insurance policies it profited from prior to the October 5, 2010 storm.
In a verdict reached late yesterday, Lynwood and Villa del Sol apartment complexes, owned by Harvey Property Management Company, were awarded the full, court-ordered appraised value of the hail damage, totaling $3,229,766.18. Travelers had insisted in part that the hail damage was part of normal wear and tear of the building.
“These buildings got beat up in 2010, but unfortunately, that was only the start of the fight,” said winning lead plaintiff’s attorney Phillip Sanov of the Merlin Law Group. “We took this to trial not just for these two buildings, but to send a message to every other victim of this and other storm denials – when your insured property is damaged, you never have to take no as an answer.”
The freak hail storm caused more than $2.7 billion in property damage (cite).
“This was a freak hail storm, but for many Arizonans, the real shock was financial,” said Chip Merlin, founder of the Merlin Law Group and counsel for the Plaintiffs. “This victory will right a couple of wrongs, but it’s a good reminder for individuals and businesses to review their policies, and also not be afraid to reach out for help before or after a storm. The good guys can beat the insurance giants.”
