If you have an insurance policy, and have called your insurer, you will receive a call from an adjuster assigned by the insurance company. This individual may either be a company adjuster, or an independent adjuster hired for that claim.
Be prepared to show your adjuster all the details of the loss. Your preparation will go a long way towards assisting your adjuster -- with your help, your adjuster will efficiently and accurately document the loss to your insurer. Remember that your professional adjuster may notice more damage than you initially identify.
