Insurance Appraisal and Umpire Services

TIR Public Adjusters LLC is offering Appraiser and Umpire services for property damage claims. Our Appraisers and Umpires are certified by IAUA (INSURANCE APPRAISAL AND UMPIRE ASSOCIATION, INC).

If the insured and the insurance company do not agree on the settlement amount, the claim adjusting process may be moved to an “appraisal”.

“Most standard policies contain an appraisal provision, which can be helpful in the event that you do not agree with your company on the amount of loss. Read your policy to see if it contains one. Under this provision, either of you can demand an appraisal. Each party selects a competent appraiser. The appraisers then select an umpire. If the appraisers cannot agree on the amount of loss, their differences are submitted to the umpire. An amount that any two agree upon is binding. Each party pays its appraiser; the umpire fee is shared.” Source: www.insurance.ca.gov
