Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Property owners, home owners, and anyone interested in learning the well-kept secrets of property insurance claims, which can save people millions of dollars.
The book works for all types of claims, all over the country. Anyone that owns and insures property would benefit from the book, whether or not they have ever had a claim.
Q: What is the book about?
A: In the book I expose the ways property insurance companies delay, deny or deflect their claim handling responsibilities to reduce payouts and maximize profits. I explain what they do, why and how they do it, and what the reader can do to level the playing field. I do this using actual cases and experiences, and I provide tips anyone can use.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Insurance, and over 20 years experience handling insurance claims all over the country. I am a former insurance industry ‘insider’. For decades, I worked for one of the largest insurance companies in the nation. Now I work as a consumer advocate (public adjuster), averaging 400% more than initial insurance company offers, totaling millions of additional dollars for my clients that would otherwise go unpaid.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: There are very few books of this kind on the market at all, and I know of none written by a former ‘insider’ with my years of experience. I give first-hand details from my time and experience as a company adjuster, and as a public adjuster. It is this unique combination of background and experience level that sets me and this book apart. Also, while insurance is generally considered a dry, technical or boring topic, UNCOVERED is written in a way that is fast-paced, light, and even humorous in the face of disaster and frustration.
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Written in a simple format and using real-life examples of actual claims, the book is easy to read, but packs a surprising punch. Many people suspect insurance companies are not their best friends. But this book goes deep to explain what really happens when you file a claim – and its not pretty. We constantly see images of catastrophic weather events and other disasters taking place all across the country, but we rarely get even a glimpse of what happens next – the man-made disasters that always follow the natural disasters. Not only do I expose the industry, but I lead the reader through the process, step-by-step, as if I am sitting right next to them.
