Independent adjusters in Florida might have their work cut out for them — with numerous Hurricane Irma-related claims being filed — but they look set to be compensated for their hard work with the region’s increased pay rates. Due to a severe shortage of insurance adjusters in Florida, insurance companies in the region have been forced to hike adjusters’ rates. The consecutive occurrence of two major natural disasters — Hurricanes Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida — was largely to blame for the shortage, as many adjusters were tapped to help policyholders in Texas first.
