Texas Expert Insurance Appraiser
Achieving a proper resolution for an insurance claim such as a homeowners claim, condominium claim or commercial claim can be very difficult when the insurance company and the policyholder do not agree about the value of the loss sustained. In these situations, a Texas expert insurance appraiser can provide a neutral evaluation that can move the parties closer to settling the claim, allowing the insurance company to have a sense of the payout and the policyholder to feel relieved knowing that much-needed funds are on their way.
Many policyholders find the insurance claims process confusing. They often feel that the insurance company has more leverage in these cases and that appraisers favor insurance companies. By having a neutral evaluation conducted by a Texas expert insurance appraiser helps level the playing field and ensures a fair outcome for both parties involved. James Judge & Associates will complete a set of specific tasks to help the policyholder be put back to a pre-loss condition and be indemnified. These steps will depend on a variety of factors, including the type of loss, location of loss, the type of structure involved and the existence of previous appraisals.
Fair and Confidential Insurance Appraisal Process Resolves Disputes in Justin, Texas
If an insurance provider and policy holder do not agree about the value of property involved in a claim, the appraisal process can be used to resolve these valuation issues.The insurance contract may provide for an independent appraisal to make the determination regarding the value of the property involved in the claim, or the parties may mutually agree to this process to resolve their issue. This process is offered as a faster and more affordable alternative to going to court to resolve the dispute on the amount of damage involved in the claim. If you would like an independent insurance appraisal from a trusted appraiser in Justin, Texas, James Judge & Associates are here to help.
Most insurance contracts that contain an appraisal clause allow the policyholder or the insurance company to make a written request for an appraisal if they are unable to agree on the value of property or loss involved. An appraiser can review information about the property and the coverage, including pictures, public records, recent sales of similar items and other information to estimate the value of the property. He or she uses this information and his or her independent knowledge to calculate the value of the property involved. The parties can agree to use this independent appraisal as the value of the claim. In other situations, they may turn to an insurance claims appraiser to resolve disparity in appraisals. In some cases, the insurance adjuster and policyholder each have their own appraisal completed and they then select a neutral umpire to serve as the final decision maker if the appraisals are different and the appraisers cannot resolve these differences.
