"Delay, Deny, Defend from the Perspective of the Policy Holder”

Did you know that after a large natural event, insurance carriers use a strategy of delaying, denying, and defending the claim?

Branch Consultants is an expert construction dispute resolution firm and NOREIA’s newest vendor member. With over 27 years experience in resolving construction disputes, Branch Consultants has developed proprietary methods in maximizing property insurance claims. They have gained this experience through Hurricanes Andrew, Katrina, and Isaac, the Northridge Earthquake, and countless tropical storms, fires, floods, and hail events.

Branch Consultants is the leading expert for Insurance Appraisal Services in the New Orleans and Gulf Coast areas. They also offer expert testimony for disputes over the value of construction defects and deficiencies.

Branch Consultants owner Tony Hall will be our guest speaker at the June monthly meeting. He will present “Delay, Deny, Defend from the Perspective of the Policy Holder.”

The lecture will cover valuable information including:
• Property Insurance Terminology
• The roles of the insurance agent, claim’s office, and catastrophe adjuster in the claim process
• Estimates of damage and why photographs and receipts are important.
• Coverage disputes including subsidence, negligence, pre-existing conditions, and construction defects
• Total losses: when repairs exceed the loss value, the cost of defense, and Valued Policy Law.
• Policy disputes including dates of loss and coverage, premium payments, and policy verification
• Low-balled estimates: how inflation of labor and materials, fixed storm prices, sloppy adjusting, and red-line estimating affects your claim, as well as how to handle denied payments
• How to defend yourself: which experts are required and types of dispute resolution
• Preparing for a catastrophe claim: timeline of the claim process, building a file, mitigation of damages, and inventory documentation.
The speaker will be structuring this topic to provide the most valuable information for the real estate investor.
