United Claims Specialists Appraisals
“Appraisal” for claims is a process frequently found in many insurance policies but is most commonly used in property damage situations. If you live in a flood-prone area of the country it is worth your while to conduct an appraisal on your home or business. Floods can create structural damage, personal belongings damage and can also damage your land. Many insurance policies do not cover flood damage, so a separate appraisal from United Claims Specialists is a good idea before approaching flood-specific insurance companies. Keep in mind this coverage is usually pricier than traditional homeowners insurance, but can pay dividends if and when you face a natural disaster. Also worth mentioning that if you live in a federally designated flood zone, the government will actually subsidize the cost of the special coverage.
As a homeowner, you might feel like your insurance company has the upper hand when it comes to replacing or repairing your damaged property. But it’s important to understand that you have many options if you aren’t satisfied with the amount your insurer offers to settle a claim. One of those options is the appraisal process from United Claims Specialists .
When it comes to dealing with flood appraisal and loss or damage you should know that virtually all first-party property insurance policies contain an “appraisal” clause in which each party, insured, and insurer can appoint a “disinterested” or “impartial” appraiser who, in turn, selects an umpire to resolve issues of the amount of loss.
In recent years, disputes between property owners and their insurance carriers in many states including New Jersey are more and more likely to be resolved in the insurance appraisal process rather than through litigation or mediation. The need for so-called “umpires” is increasing as many catastrophic losses are being resolved by appraisal. This growth in dispute resolution by appraisal means that more and more people should be made aware of just how valuable our appraisal services at United Claims Specialists could be!
When conducted properly an appraisal is a very effective alternative and dispute resolution process offered by the professional appraisal team at United Claims Specialists. Call today to get help to determine whether or not you need the guidance of a United Claims Specialists appraisal specialist.
