“Don’t Settle for Less”
Southern Public Adjusters
Sometimes there is disagreement between the insurance company and the policyholder involving either the cause of the damage, or the extent of damage that was caused by a covered peril. Prior to filing a lawsuit, it may be beneficial to attempt to resolve the disagreement by using one of the following:
MEDIATION: This is an informal process where a trained, neutral mediator tries to help resolve the dispute without dictating the outcome. The insurance company pays the cost of the mediation process. Mediation is not binding on either party. You are not required to accept the offer made by the company at the mediation conference
APPRAISAL: If you cannot reach a satisfactory settlement, you may hire an appraiser to help you get paid. Your appraiser will negotiate with the insurer’s appraiser to reach a settlement. If the two appraisers cannot agree, they will hire an umpire. The cost of the umpire is shared by you and the insurer. A decision by any two of the three is binding on all parties. The appraisal process is available on new claims that have been paid as well as re-opened claims. We can help you navigate the complexities within the policy language. “Don’t settle for less.”
