This major shopping center sustained damage from the passage of Hurricane Opal. The Public Adjusters were retained to represent Prince in formal arbitration. The arbitration award amounted to more than a 300% increase over and above the "full and final" offer.

Welcome to Jeffrey L Evans Inc. A079574 dba The Public Adjusters!

Public adjusters are the insurance industry's best-kept secret.  They are professionals, about which insurance companies tell claimants, "there is no reason to hire a public adjuster, you are throwing your money away," and "we will pay you the claim anyway."

Do not be misled, the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company - NOT for you! They want to pay as little on your claim as necessary.  The Public Adjusters are local and we work for YOU - to put money back into your pocket to rebuild or renovate your property!

If you are a homeowner, condominium association manager, corporate entity, hotel, motel, or other business owner and you have an insurance claim on your Northwest Florida property - no matter how large or small it is, call The Public Adjusters.


Don't Be Pushed Around by Insurance Companies
The evidence of structural and other damages is, in many instances, not obvious; particularly to those who have very little or no experience in the types of damage caused by catastrophic events. To expect even a well-experienced loss assessor, estimator, contractor, accountant, or other person to determine correctly and in detail the scope and extent of damages when they have had little or no prior experience with catastrophic losses is not possible.


Serving Florida on the Emerald Coast
The Public Adjusters are experts in evaluating catastrophic losses such as earthquakes, floods, mudslides, firestorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes; having participated in many such claims adjustments events in the past, both in the United States and abroad.

The Public Adjusters are experts in insurance claims administration, construction, engineering, inventory analysis, loss of use, and business interruption. We assist in the resolution of losses, which expedites the rebuilding of the economy, the environment, and the quality of life in areas that have sustained a catastrophic loss and damage.


Tracking Costs
Keeping a pulse on steadily rising costs and pricing for repair and/or replacement due to catastrophic loss is another major concern when processing property insurance claims. The Public Adjusters utilize state-of-the-art computer systems with computerized estimating capabilities, inventory programs, and accounting software for inventories and business interruption when analyzing and negotiating property insurance claims. These services, along with property insurance claim expertise and experience form the keys to a quick and equitable resolution of claims.


Building Trust
Several major businesses and individuals have put their trust in our capabilities. Clients who rely upon The The Public Adjusters' experience for assistance with their claim quickly realize that the services that The Public Adjusters provide – detail in preparation, accurate assessment of damages, time, and final resolution of claim – is invaluable to them.

Considering your insurer has engaged experts to represent their interests, shouldn’t you consider having professional assistance in what is likely the largest single loss situation you shall ever experience?
