East Coast Public Adjusters Helps Property Owners Understand the Insurance Claims Process

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) -  Having a strategy in place when unexpected times of crisis arise in your home is as essential to mental health as it is to financial wellbeing. A 2009 survey conducted by the State of Florida found that there was a 747 percent increase when a public adjuster was hired at the start of the insurance claims process. East Coast Public Adjusters, Inc., a public adjusting firm that provides services to individuals and corporate clients both domestically and internationally, has seen first-hand the varying degrees of outcomes that can arise when it comes to insurance settlements. That's why the firm focuses much of its attention on educating property owners about their rights. So whether owners are dealing with an unexpected flood, mold or damage caused by a storm, understanding the process is key to making sure that people receive all that they are entitled to.

"The misconception about public adjusters is that we represent insurers," said Daniel Odess, President of East Coast Public Adjusters, Inc. "The truth is, we represent business owners, condominium associations and homeowners -- not the insurer. It's like hiring a tax lawyer or accountant who can advise you on the best course of action and act as your professional advocate, rather than asking the IRS to do you a favor and audit your return."

Founded in 1988 by the late Pat "The Legend" Catania, East Coast Public Adjusters is known as true pioneers in the public adjusting industry. Since its inception, ECPA has serviced more than twelve thousand clients with $750,000,000 in claims. Odess took over the firm in May 2010 and is dedicated to continuing to build the stellar reputation of East Coast Public Adjusters. For 2011, ECPA will not only continue their claims work, but also organize educational seminars and informational speaking engagements to explain how public adjusters are not the enemy.

"It is important for all property owners to understand their policies and their rights," said Odess. "Our seminars will bring all parties to the table for an open discussion about what steps need to be taken to ensure that people are taken care of in times of need."
