The "Appraisal Process" as found within most property insurance policies operates as an "Alternative Dispute Resolution" process for resolving disputes in any claim. The process is much faster and far less costly that going straight to litigation and may be found within the policy provisions of the applicable insurance contract. In many instances, the process is required before litigation can proceed.
