What is the difference between a public adjuster and a claims advocate. David Princeton of Claim Advocate Service joins Bryan and Jon on The DYOJO Podcast to answer this question and more. In short, David shares that a public adjuster works with a client on a covered property insurance claim while a claims advocate helps those clients who have doubtful or disputed claims.
