The Appraisal Process
A Dispute Occurs
A dispute arises over the value and extent of the insured loss between carrier and insured.
Invocation of Appraisal
Either party demands appraisal based on the policy language. Each side will the pick and assign a competent and impartial appraiser to represent them during the appraisal. These appraisers will agree upon an umpire should they be unable to agree on the scope of the loss.
The two appraisers will attempt to reach an agreement on all items disputed. The appraisal panel will inspect, review and debate the loss in an attempt to resolve the dispute.
Invocation of Umpire
If the two appraisers are unable to agree on the scope, the umpire will be invoked to act as a third party to attempt to settle disputes.
Deliberations, Voting, and Decisions
Deliberations will occur along with reviewing all documents, photos, and evidence. Once disputes have been resolved, 2 out of 3 members of the panel must write up and sign their decision OR 3 out of 3 members will sign a Unanimous agreement.
The decision/award is then delivered to the carrier and the insured to trigger payment and enforcement of the award. The appraisal is completed.
