There are times when insurance claims end up in the hands of an attorney because of any numerous reasons. 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.
