Insurance Umpire Services to Resolve Claim Disputes

Insurance appraisal is a binding alternative dispute resolution process that typically involves two independent appraisers who evaluate the claim, compare notes, and come to an agreement. When a disagreement arises between the property owner’s appraiser and the insurance company’s appraiser, an impartial umpire is suggested and agreed upon by both appraisers.

Umpires Are:

  • Competent in loss adjusting and construction
  • Responsible for assessing the amount of a property loss or value of a property
  • Tasked with making a binding decision if and when two appraisers are unable to agree.
  • Best utilized when appointed at the beginning of the appraisal process.
What Ron Says Umpires:

“While umpires are generally called in after a disagreement between the two appraisers, it’s not a bad idea to appoint an umpire early in the process. Not only can the umpire follow the proceedings as they unfold, he or she can step in quickly should a dispute arise.”
