Your quality roofing
MEET ANDREW POZNIAK
Twenty years ago, I was working as a roofing contractor for a management company. My job was to inspect and maintain the roofs. One day I received a phone call from the unit owner, and he informed me about a leak. The roof looked brand new, so I asked myself—”Where are the leaks coming from?” I was certain of my work maintaining the roofs.
It turns out there was a major hail storm years earlier, but I had no way of knowing. The damage was so severe, but an untrained eye could not have recognized it. As a direct result, it cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to do the mold remediation and the entire roof replacement. I decided that day to train myself in storm related damages.
Today I am the president and CEO of Lake Shore Public Adjusters LLC., which successfully settled over 4,000 roof-related insurance claims. I specialize in working with roofing system failures that stem from many different causes, and it has helped countless property owners to revolve those issues with their insurance companies.
My expertise has allowed me to expand my business and the industry through training others. I am a board member of the Illinois Claim Training Center for public adjusters, where I have trained hundreds of individuals to handle insurance claims on behalf of policy holders.
PUBLIC ADJUSTERS TEAM
We are public insurance adjusters who represent and advocate for you in evaluating and negotiating an insurance claim. Aside from attorney and the broker of record, public adjusters licensed by the state of Illinois are the only other professional that can legally represent the rights of an insured during the insurance claim process. We charge a percentage of the amount the insurance company pays.
Primarily, we read the policy of insurance to determine coverage, evaluate the damage, prepare an estimate, complete all claim documentations, and negotiate with the insurance company’s claims handler on your behalf. As public adjusters we are representatives of the policyholder who advises, manages, and submits a claim to the policyholder’s insurance company.
Insurance companies are represented by their own staff adjusters, or by independent adjusters hired by the insurance company. Staff adjusters and independent adjusters represents the interest of the insurance company. ONLY A PUBLIC ADJUSTER REPRESENTS THE INTEREST OF THE POLICYHOLDER.
