201808.11 0 How much does a public adjuster make in a year? Well if you hire an Experienced Public Adjuster they will make a good living. Why you might ask? Because we only get paid if you get paid and we work on a contingency fee basis. So the more money we can get you the more we get paid. This is why its in your best interest to hire a Public Adjuster instead of an Attorney. We fight for every dollar owed. In Florida, Attorneys get paid by the carrier under Florida Statute if they collect just $1 dollar. So they have no incentive to work hard to maximize your settlement.
