Who we serve
At Morrison & Morrison, Inc., we are often called upon to serve as appraisers and experts when an insurance claim remains unresolved and ends up in the hands of an attorney. Our expertise is often utilized by not only plaintiff lawyers, but also defendants as well, when the true property damages are sought. We have worked for some of the most prominent firms in the insurance industry on a nationwide level.
When a file that we have handled as a public adjuster does end up in the hands of an attorney for pursuit of additional damages, we not only prepare the file before it goes to the attorney, but we play an integral supporting role throughout the settlement process. Our support continues until the file has reached legal resolution. Additionally, we are often hired to become involved in various claims that have reached lawsuit status because of our well established reputation. In these cases, we often serve as a damage estimator, appraiser or an expert.
A Public Adjuster or a Public Insurance Adjuster is an expert on loss adjustment and the recovery process, who is employed by the policyholder. The Public Adjuster assists you, the insured, in preparing, filing and managing the payment of insurance claims regarding property loss. He works on your behalf.
You can contact our firm via telephone (866.723.5787) or email (email@example.com) and request a review of your loss. You will need a copy of your insurance policy. If you do not have it available, you can usually obtain a copy from your insurance agent with a request in writing.
A Public Adjuster’s compensation is a small percent of your insurer’s claims payments that are made to you. The Public Adjuster’s fees are usually more than covered by a successful claim payment that is obtained for you.
Public Adjusters are licensed in some states. Both Texas and Florida require Public Adjusters to be licensed. Clay Morrison is licensed in many states.
Is the Public Adjuster affiliated with any insurance company? Does he sell insurance or act as an insurance agent?
No, no and no. The Public Adjuster is employed exclusively by the public you, the policyholder. Selling insurance or acting as an insurance agent would be a conflict of interest.
Absolutely not. The Public Adjusting Profession is licensed and regulated by the Department of Insurance in any given state. As a policyholder you have the right to hire an expert who will manage your claim on your behalf. Canceling your policy because you hired a Public Adjuster is a violation of State Law in some states.
If I work directly with the insurance company’s adjuster, can I get the same end results as I would working with a public adjuster?
Most likely, no. The insurer’s adjuster represents the insurer’s interests, not yours. Neither the insurance carrier nor the assigned adjuster is responsible for writing a detailed estimate of your loss. Frequently, these estimates are missing items and do not accurately reflect the market costs in your area.
No. Most policies include your right to have an appraisal, and if necessary the right to litigation. In any case DO NOT SIGN ANY WAIVER from the insurance company without having an attorney review it first.
The Public Adjuster is employed by you, and works on your behalf. The insurance company’s adjusters are employed by the insurance company, and their responsibility and accountability rests with the insurer.

“Availing myself of your services was the best thing I could have done. First you removed the heavy burden of having to deal with insurance adjusters and then to detail the proof of loss in a manner that I would never have been able to do.”
