When the wind blows… Team Complete is there in Louisiana to help
When a home or business is damaged and the claim reaches an impasse, the appraisal process included in most commercial and residential insurance policies can serve as an alternative dispute resolution method to avoid litigation or at least resolve portions of the claim.
APPRAISAL — If you and we fail to agree on the amount of loss, either one can demand that the amount of the loss be set by appraisal … The appraisers shall then set the amount of the loss … They shall submit their differences to the umpire … Written agreement signed by any two of these three shall set the amount of the loss.
Louisiana Property Damage
Property damage due natural disasters can seem overwhelming, especially living in an area that is prone to heavy storm seasons. John Minor understands first hand how a storm can change your life forever. In 1995, Hurricane Opal destroyed his home. He watched as the insurer and contractor both came up with wildly different numbers for the repair. The difference in cost and scope is what John dedicated the next 25 years of his career to. John knows what the formal appraisal or arbitration process can mean for both parties after a storm strikes. Team Complete is dedicated to providing honest and accurate assessments of damage.
The Team Complete fleet are on high alert to respond to whatever Mother Nature brings to Louisiana.
