Highlands County Public Adjuster

Property damage can strike abruptly. You may or may not see it coming.

No one is truly prepared to manage the effects of extreme property damage on their own, and help can be very beneficial, even in minor claims. Highlands County in Florida is a red zone for property damage because of frequent tropical storms and hurricanes, so preparation is important. Do you know the ins and outs of your insurance policy? Are you sure you’re covered in the event of property damage? 

A public adjuster is a licensed professional who can help you understand all the intricacies of your property insurance policy and represent you through your current claim. Public adjusters in Highlands County have extensive experience working with insurance companies: mastering their claims submission techniques, finding hidden benefits insurers “overlook” to save money, and conducting independent inspections separate from insurers’ to ensure accuracy. 

You shouldn’t have to journey through this alone. Pinnacle Claim Services is here to help! We have live claim experts standing by, ready to take your call and help you get started. Call (877) 70-CLAIM to speak with a member of our team and help us understand the details of your unique situation.

Our Pinnacle Process as Highland County Public Insurance Adjusters

We know how important it is to get your claim rolling and progressing, so we act immediately. Our team is eager to help, so we waste no time in beginning our process as adjusters and advocates for the policyholder. 

Pinnacle Claim Services is ready to help through many types of property damage claims:

Give Us a Ring! It All Starts With You

Everything starts with your initial phone call. One of our live claim experts will gather some information about the unique details of your case, and then you’ll hear from one of our adjusters shortly after. We are always available with staff on hand to take your call!  

Damage Inspection

It is important to quickly assess the damages done to the property, so we’ll schedule a damage inspection directly after your initial phone call. A qualified inspector will come out and document their findings so the claim can accurately reflect all damaged areas. 

Storm Restoration Assistance 

When a disaster hits your home, who will you call? Whoever your insurer recommends? Sometimes, that isn’t in the best interest of the policyholder, and you’d be better off picking a professional based on their Google reviews. 

We have spent a lot of time in the business, and so we have built strong relationships with local restoration professionals who are skilled in repairing a wide variety of damages effectively and efficiently. We never recommend a pro that we don’t trust. When you work with Pinnacle, you get more than an adjuster — you also have a trusted team working on every aspect of your home’s recovery. 

Review of Current Insurance Policy

Even if you don’t understand the fine details of your policy, you deserve to use its benefits. A public adjuster can help you understand what hidden coverages you are granted in your policy and help you use them for your current claim. Insurance companies count on a few things, one being that you won’t understand what you pay for. We can change that. 

Property Damage Claim Review

Pinnacle Claim Services can help you form a strong property damage claim or review the claim you’ve already filed. We are claim experts skilled in highlighting evidence and reasons for filing to ensure that your claim is accepted and not denied. 

Highlands County Storm History

Florida is known to have frequent tropical storms, and Highlands County is not an exception. Unfortunately, Highlands County has seen some of our nation’s worst storms. Most notably, in recent years, Highlands County was the second most affected county by Hurricane Irma. With 13,000 homes affected and millions in damages caused, the effects of Irma still haunt Floridian communities. Even so, Highlands County has a lower storm and hurricane risk than some surrounding counties. 

Highlands County Public Claims Adjusters Work Solely For The Policyholder

When you work with a public adjuster, the only person they answer to is you. Our success solely relies on our ability to help you succeed, so any guidance we give you is advice we’d give our own families in the same situation. 

Risk-Free Services

Our services come with zero upfront cost because we want to prove that we’re earning our fee. You deserve the peace of mind that your team is working hard for your benefit, not for another faceless company. The only compensation we will take is a small percentage of your payout when the claim is settled. 

We Help During All Steps of the Claim

One of the hardest parts of the claim process is fighting for a fair settlement during negotiations. Many people go in unaware, not knowing what the insurance representative will say or what they even want to offer. This unknown factor can be intimidating, but public adjusters like ours at Pinnacle Claim Services have years of experience and know exactly what to expect. We have handled thousands of claims for residents of Highlands County and throughout Florida. Your adjuster can speak on your behalf through negotiations and present all evidence collected to contradict any lowball offers. 

How a Highlands County Personal Claims Adjuster Protects Your Claim After Property Damage

Even before you work with a public adjuster, there are some steps that you can take independently to greatly increase your chances of a more complete settlement. These steps can also help your public adjuster gather more solid evidence to take into the claims process. More is always better than less when it comes to documentation and evidence. 

Call Pinnacle ASAP and Take Photos of All Damages and Document All Losses

When it is safe to do so, a crucial part of gathering evidence is to document all losses. The insurer will need to know what was damaged, what personal belongings are unsalvageable, and what can be fixed instead of replaced. You should take many pictures of all damage at different angles to thoroughly document any damage created. Also, save all personal items until the claim is resolved, just in case there are any confirmations to make as to what was damaged by the incident.

Try Your Best to Prevent Further Damage

If you can prove to your insurer that you made every effort to try and mitigate the damage by doing things like turning off your water supply, tarping your roof, or other preventative measures, you may be able to avoid paying for continued damages resulting from the days that follow the disaster or incident.

Utilize Community Resources 

Extreme weather can be scary, especially if you are ill-prepared. Fortunately, the state of Florida has many resources for citizens to take advantage of in such stressful and sometimes dangerous times.

Insurance Claim Questions

How can Pinnacle Claim Services, Inc. help me?

When disaster strikes, it can be difficult knowing where to turn or who to ask for help. Pinnacle Claim Services’ professional team of Florida public insurance adjusters and support experts are here to assist you throughout every step of your damage claim from emergency services and mitigation through final settlement.

Some of the most common issues people experience with insurance companies after property damage has occurred and a claim has been initiated include: unreasonable delay on the part of the insurance company, inadequate training of the insurance company’s adjusters and adjusters that are “so busy” that your claim gets zero attention and does not progress towards resolution. Additionally, you may not have the appropriate policy with the right type of coverage or limits.

There is no set time period for settling a property damage claim with an insurance company and each claim is different. You could receive a check in a few days or it could be a few weeks. Also, it may take multiple rounds of negotiations and payments for you to be adequately and justly compensated for your claim.

Absolutely not. Some companies do possess better reputations than others and there are some who consistently delay the process unnecessarily. It’s important that you comply with your “duties after the loss” (duty to mitigate etc.) Call us, we can help!

I can't thank Brad Pridemore of Pinnacle Claim Services enough for his help with our insurance claim resulting from hurricane related roof damage.Not knowing how the claim process worked and dealing with serious medical issues, it felt amazing to have someone on our sidethat is knowledgeable, worked for us and our best interest!After suffering a loss, most insurance companies give you the run around. Upon hiring Pinnacle Claim Services they immediatelygot to work on our case, communicating every step of the way. Our insurance company managed to drag it out for months,with a variety of moves intended only to delay, delay. None of the delays were Pinnacle's fault. In the end, Brad was able to get the insurance company to settle, we got a new roof and we couldn't be happier.Their fees are fair and we really appreciate all their efforts.If you find yourself in the situation that your home has been damaged, do yourself a favor and give Brad a call, you won't be sorry.Just remember, it can be a long process, but in the end it's worth the wait.I would highly recommend talking to and hiring Pinnacle Claim Services.Thank you Brad. You've been a lifesaver!

The team at Pinnacle Claims exceeded my expectations. Tom came in after my insurance company had settled a total of $9,829 for covered damages to my home, and he, Monica, Brad and Pat were able to get me another $15,530 after their fees, for a total insurance claim settlement of $25,359 so that I could fully repair the covered damages in my home the right way. They were very good at keeping me informed of the progress of the negotiated settlement, and educated me about the process and the law. Thank you Pinnacle Claims!!
