Throughout the process, the use of experts are often used by the insurance carrier and the insured to support their case. For example, an insurance carrier may send a structural engineer to the property to assess the damage. Unfortunately, this report often closely resembles the insurance carriers original position. The only method to counter this is to pay for and submit an expert report countering the insurance carrier’s position. Selecting the best engineer to back up your position is critical when a dispute with the carrier arises.
