Looking For A Public Adjuster In New Jersey? Here's What We Can Do For You

When dealing with an insurance claim, you may come across two types of adjusters. You’ll see an insurance adjuster and a public adjuster in New Jersey. Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company, trying to minimize the payout of claims to protect the insurer’s financial interests. Public adjusters, on the other hand, work for you, the policyholder. They represent your interests, making sure you receive the maximum compensation for your claim. 

If you are facing damage claims due to structural failures or any other reason, Stone Building Solutions’ public adjusters in New Jersey are ready to assist you. Check out this Q&A to see what we can do.

What Does It Cost to Hire a Public Adjuster in New Jersey?

Stone Building Solutions charges a fee of 10-20% of the payments received, depending on the specifics of the loss. Things that can affect our percentage include how quickly we are involved, any advanced contingency costs for the firm, and the client’s decisiveness. This fee structure sees to it that our compensation is aligned with your success.

What Should I Consider When Hiring a Public Adjuster?

When hiring a public adjuster, think about these several critical aspects:

  • Industry Longevity: Experience is important in dealing with complex claims.
  • References and Reviews: Look for positive feedback from past clients.
  • Memberships: Affiliations with associations like the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) indicate credibility.
  • Industry Awards: Recognitions can signal excellence.
  • Experience with Similar Losses: Make sure the adjuster has handled claims similar to yours.
  • Staff and Resources: A firm with W-2 employees and the ability to front expert costs is preferable.
  • Insurance and Licensing: Verify up-to-date company licenses and compliance.
  • Trust and Collaboration: Personal rapport is highly recommended for effective cooperation.

How Does a Public Adjuster Get Paid?

We work on a contingency basis, meaning we get paid only as you receive your payments. This arrangement means that our interests are fully aligned with yours, focusing on maximizing your claim’s outcome.
