APPRAISAL CLAUSE BRINGS JUSTICE AGAIN!

OFFICIAL OFFER WAS OVER $7000 LOW ON A 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT

Hey guys!  It has been quite a while since we had time to post on our blog because we’ve spent our year so far helping tons of accident victims get a fair shake when dealing with diminished value and total losses.

We’ll start today with our latest success on a little known power you have against your own insurance company (1st party claim) if you have a total loss:

THE APPRAISAL CLAUSE!

Even if you know about the appraisal clause, it doesn’t mean it will be effective for you since most insurance companies have their own idea about how the appraisal clause works (even though it is in black and white in the contract) so you have to have an experienced expert that knows the rules and how to navigate the process legally.  We have inside knowledge that the appraisal clause is on top of everyone’s mind working inside the claims department because it is costing them a ton of money to defend the practices of their uneducated adjusters.

The requirement that appraisers and umpires be “disinterested” is something that the insurance companies purposely and habitually fail to recognize.  The two appraisers working the claim must be totally disinterested.  Their concern should be about the TRUE VALUE of the loss.  It isn’t YOUR SIDE VS. THEIR SIDE.  It is NO SIDE VS. NO SIDE!  Insurance companies try their hardest to maintain control of the process and many times they will name one of their OWN EMPLOYEES as their “appraiser” hoping you don’t know any better.  Until you call them out, they will PRETEND that is how it works.  It isn’t and, if you want to prove it, have them call our office and we’ll school them, like we routinely do.

OUR LATEST APPRAISAL CLAUSE SUCCESS

Dan contacted us because he felt the offer on his totaled 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT Texas Edition was extremely low.  Once we reviewed, we confirmed that the offer was THOUSANDS too low. We helped him invoke the appraisal clause under his policy and navigated the claim to a proper conclusion.

One phone call is all it took folks – one phone call and invocation of the appraisal clause corrected the offer and ultimately the two totally independent expert appraisers agreed to over $7000 more than the original offer!

Let me say that again…

ONE PHONE CALL TO PETTY DETAILS CORRECTED A $7000 MISTAKE ON DAN’S CLAIM!!!

If you think you think you are getting a low offer, then this should show you the value of invoking the appraisal clause.  It is highly valuable to hire a true independent, honest and disinterested appraiser!

We hope you don’t delay in contacting our office if you have a total loss dispute. You would be shocked at how often invoking the appraisal clause causes an insurance company to make a more accurate offer.  We make a living telling people the truth and insurance company adjusters make a living following the rules that their boss gives them so they don’t get fired.  Invoking the appraisal clause takes the “yes-man” adjuster out of the mix and puts the power in the hands of two totally independent professionals who don’t have a dog in the fight.

Don’t waste another google search trying to figure out what to do!  Request a consultation on your total loss today absolutely free and see if you can be the next to get on our list of appraisal clause wins like our friend Dan!

I Witnessed A Miracle: Witnessing A Car Accident

I’ll say it again….I witnessed a miracle!

I saw the middle stages of a little Ford Focus Hatchback taking a hit, flipping in mid-air, and the aftermath that ensued.  As soon as I heard it, I looked out my window in my office because I like to work with the blinds open and sun shining in and I saw metal pieces and tires flying everywhere and a small car flipping once, twice, then landing right side up.  It was like watching slow motion video and then stillness.  I was scared to death that someone was badly hurt or even dead because there was no movement for a second.  I yelled to Justin who was cooking us some gourmet lunch at the time and he yelled “Call 911!” and dashed out the door.  While calling 911, I saw movement and a  young woman jumped out of the car and ran around to the passenger side….to get her infant child out.  The baby was moving and seemed to be fine but in shock and the man in the truck said he was okay but stayed in his truck, probably in shock as well.  The 911 operators were great, quickly taking down the info they needed and with a sound in their voice like they were eager to help.  It was refreshing considering the stories we have all seen on the news about people at the 911 command having a bad day or lackadaisical attitude that ends up costing valuable time and lives.

We’re Baaaaaaaack! Welcome, 2015!

We know…its been a while since we last posted and there is good reason for that!

Let’s get caught back up on happenings since we have been gone:

Summer was on fire and our son was Flounder in the local musical theater production of The Little Mermaid!  Here is a little taste of our local musical theater star in action:

Movin’ On Up!!

With over 5 years under our belt, we have been growing like wildfire and more attorneys, consumers and insurance professionals than ever are approaching us for help getting justice on diminished value and total loss property damage claims.  We have been working closely with several attorneys that are helping our clients settle their claims when the insurance company they are pursuing sticks their feet in the mud with a low offer or denial.

Christmas PettysWith our growth we face new challenges and work every day to perfect our processes and every new year gives us a chance to grow as humans and business owners.  We are excited at the opportunities we have in this new year and have a goal to post more info than ever before to help you find answers you are desperately googling for when it comes to the confusing insurance claims process because we know there aren’t many folks like us out there that will freely give you the RIGHT answer.  We are proud of our business and can’t wait to see what this year holds and we thank our family, friends and clients who have made us what we are today!

Here’s to a 2015 that ROCKS for all of us!

Happy Birthday to US!

Happy Birthday!

WE’RE FIVE YEARS OLD TODAY!

After sailing through our day as normal, something was pulling at me all day so Justin and I started discussing when we opened the business and pulled up our LLC Formation paperwork and low and behold, today was DEFINITELY a special day for us!  We have put five long years of passion for helping auto accident victims into our very own entrepreneurial endeavor and started with little to our name and today is our happy happy birthday and we’re five years old!

There have been many changes over the years and, entering our sixth year, we have never felt better about the direction our business is taking us in.  We are in a huge growth mode this year and unbelievably excited thinking of what the rest of 2014 and the next 5 years have in store for us!  We are so thankful to great family and friends that have been there to support us and help us through the sometimes very stressful but rewarding mission we are on to change the industry we are in and get people the real help that is hard to come by.  We believe Ghandi had it right when he said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” and that has brought us the most reward doing what we love…together….without killing each other…. haha

 Here’s to the next 5 years and making some real change, authentically and with a purpose!

THANK YOU!!
