How have these issues been shaped by case law? Faculty: Mike Wilson, Esq., Davis & Wilkerson, P.C.; William J. Chriss, Esq., Gravely & Pearson, L.L.P.; Curtis Hutchens, Esq., Citizens Property Insurance Corp. Where Is the Appraisal Provision Heading? Developments in Case Law, Policy Language, and the Implications Thereof Although the appraisal clause was created with the goal to allow a less costly alternative to litigation, as well as resolving a claim in its entirety, this is frequently not the case. For the insurer, an appraisal may result in exposure to litigation costs, attorneys fees, and a basis for supporting a subsequent bad-faith claim. For the insured, an appraisal award may be significantly less than expected or lower than the incurred costs for repairs. This workshop includes an overview of the recent case law, changes in policy language, and the reality of the appraisal process. Faculty: Evan R. Wolfe, Esq., Evan R.
