Appraisals for Plaintiff & Defense Attorneys
25 Apr 2015
The appraisal process starts only when a proposed insurance claim award for covering the claim is disputed. At this stage, an appraisal provision is requested in writing by the either party. Next, both the policyholder and the insurance company must select an independent third party, which is then appointed to serve as their Appraiser. This process is followed to reduce the time and high instance of expensive lawsuits, when the only point of dispute is the loss amount. Though, the State Regulators provide this appraisal mechanism for reducing overall costs, such appraisers must be proven professionals who thoroughly understand insurance claims and issues. They should also have extensive knowledge of construction and replacement costs; otherwise the entire process will be wasted.
