East Coast Public Adjusters Helping Hurricane Irene Victims With Insurance Claims

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Drawing on decades of experience in dealing with hurricane-related insurance claims, East Coast Public Adjusters, Inc., sent a team of licensed, professional public adjusters to the Mid-Atlantic states this weekend to assist victims of Hurricane Irene.

"We know that insurance companies often try minimize property damage claims or delay settlement," said Dan Odess, president of the Miami-based national company. "A public adjuster can represent the residential or business claimant, helping them understand their policies, file a claim correctly and obtain the maximum possible settlement according to their policy." Odess continued, "Property owners should know that public adjusters' only fiduciary responsibility is to the insured. In other words, we work for you, not your insurance company."

While the extent of Hurricane Irene's damage has yet to be determined, early estimates indicate losses will total several billion dollars, Odess added. "Property owners should be aware that winds, rain and flooding may cause structural damage that may not be immediately evident," he said. "A public adjuster, working closely with an experienced contractor, can examine the building, and identify potential damage before filing a claim."

East Coast Public Adjusters is licensed to provide assistance to owners along the eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine. Property owners who have storm damage and plan to file an insurance claim can text "DAMAGE" to 70000 or visit to get more information or be connected with a public adjuster.

"Everyone affected by Hurricane Irene deserves a speedy settlement that allows them to repair or rebuild their property," said Odess. "As a licensed professional familiar with insurance coverage, claims and construction issues, a public adjuster can play a key role the recovery process."
