About Gold Star Adjusters

Why You Need Gold Star Adjusters

When disaster strikes, people try to handle the claim themselves. Or worse, they leave the claim handling up to the insurance company, hoping they will be treated fairly and get paid what they are entitled to under the policy. Especially at a time when insurance company resources are critically overtaxed, you have better odds of winning in Vegas than getting a good adjuster.

Think of it this way ... you turn over your taxes to a professional for a $2,000 refund, so why would you attempt to handle a $15,000, $50,000, or $100,000+ insurance claim yourself?

Unless you are experienced and trained in insurance claims, handling your own major loss would be like defending yourself in court, or performing your own root canal!! That's where we come in. We know insurance. More importantly, we know insurance claims.

Click here for video explaining how we help our clients!

We are Florida insurance adjustment experts, and we will work only for you. We prepare, submit and negotiate the claim on your behalf, and only with your best interests in mind. We are able to explain the process, and inform you of your options every step of the way. Having decades of experience with the largest insurance companies in the country, we know what it takes to present a claim, and achieve the maximum settlement for your loss.

Insurance policies are confusing, and company adjusters are only human.

They have varying degrees of experience, knowledge and ability, they are under great pressure from insurance companies and other policyholders, and have huge time constraints. The bottom line - they make mistakes - mistakes which could cost you a lot of money. You need Gold Star on your side!

We only work for YOU!

We have the training, experience and know-how to recover the maximum for your claim, and we educate you in the process. With Gold Star, you get more. More knowledge, more power, more understanding, more control, more results, more of what you deserve from your insurance claim (insurance company lobbyists have made sure that Florida law prohibits us from saying you will get more money, but try us and see. If you don't get more money, we don't get paid!).

Don't just take our word for it. Check our results and review some testimonials. Then call! Like the rest of our clients, you'll be very glad you did.
