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 Should Be:

  • 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.
  • Experienced with the type of loss they are being hired for
  • Able to write a detailed estimate of damages should they need to

What Clients Are Saying About Us

  • My friend referred me to hire a National Adjusters, and I have to say I was a bit skeptical as I have been misled by others promising results and always coming up short. National Adjuster, has proven themselves to me and five of my personal friends and family, they have gone the distance and stayed persistent in achieving some amazing results when we felt completely frustrated dealing with all the insurance company delay tactics, attempts to low ball our insurance claim and poor claims handling practices. I have invited several of National Adjusters public adjusters to my family functions as I feel everyone should have someone like them close by when disasters happen.

  • I have nothing but praise for National Adjusters! They came in with a crew of engineers, roofing consultants, and inspectors, did a ton of detailed paperwork and many supplemental reports, dealt with our insurance company adjusters, and within months National Adjusters came through with over $1 million dollars of additional insurance money. You kept us informed along the way, and you were there for us. Thank goodness for National Adjusters, Inc.

  • I am a senior risk manager at a large manufacturing firm who recently used National Adjusters, Inc service to assist us with our insurance company. I just had to write and let you know how satisfied I am with the results your organization was able to achieve! The business interruption calculations allowed us to get additional coverage and payment that the insurance company adjuster denied, the machinery replacement costs were finally paid per your expert evaluations a 400% increase, not to mention the fact that your team was able to successfully reduce the amount of depreciation the insurance company was attempting to apply. I honestly thought I could handle this insurance claims process myself; BOY was I wrong and at the same time grateful for the assistance National Adjusters was able to provide. You truly made me look like a hero to my superiors. I am so glad that I took a chance on you!

  • I am an insurance agent myself and have been for over 30 years. My wife and I have owned many homes and several apartment complexes. We filed our first claim in eight years and after waiting for 3 months for an adjuster and another two months for an engineer they sent, my insurance company said my claim was under my $1,000 deductible. It was then that I got extremely upset and called National Adjusters. Within 30 days they inspected my home, had a roofing consultant, an industrial hygienist, a certified infrared technician and other professionals inspect the damage, and sent me a check from my insurance company for almost $35,000 after applying my $1,000 deductible. They were extremely polite, efficient, and obtained excellent results. I would recommend National Adjusters, Inc. to anyone with an insurance claim in these difficult times. I no longer work in the insurance industry because insurance companies have grown difficult to deal with and the customer service is no longer there. That is why anyone in Florida with an insurance loss needs a Public Adjusters to act on their behalf and eliminate the stress!
