Well, everything you see today is based off of the ill-begotten logic that an insured has no responsibilites under the inusrance contract... save filing a claim.
That is factually, provably incorrect, to a massive detriment to the insured, and it is hidden in plain sight, right there in every single policy I have ever read.
It is Called, YOUR Duties after a loss...
Not the Insurance Company who owes you the money... YOU!
The insured, or your legal representative.
In most states, that is either a Licensed attorney in that state, (There is a time and a place for an attorney, the beginning is not it.) or a licensed Public Insurance Adjuster that state.
Whether you are an insured, a contractor, roofer, appraiser, attorney, PIA, IA staff adjuster... That time and place is easily definable, as long as you know what you are looking at, and why.
Turns out, we have been here, in name and practice, since before 1893... yes, read that again. 1893.
The fact that you can find no history beyond the 1930's era, and very little since then, on one of the oldest, most lucrative professions in the world, with or without a college degree... should send your conspiracy theory mind into a web well deserved research that will come up fruitless... You will have no more knowledge after 10 hours or scouring the earth and the google, whatever search engine you use, with the fastest computer, and best interent... It simply does not exist. That does not happen. You don't just not have any data, any references... and evidence that a profession this old does not have deep seated roots.
Why are they hiding them?
Why doesn't google, facebook, ANY drop down professional menu have the PA/PIA designation?
I used to think we were an answer to them.
Turns out, they were an answer to us, and total control over a process they should not have... telling folks as the de facto authoiryt what it is they owe... Clearest conflict of interest that exists.
We will hit all the regular curricullum as loosely detailed below.
One underlying theme of all the students who have graduated… What they believed was “clear bad faith”, was nowhere close. Typically it boils down to one reason why. The insured, nor their representative, performed under the contract of insurance. Without full performance under that contract, by the insured, not the insurance carrier, bad faith will be very hard to obtain. Why we do not see all the “Bad Faith Verdicts”. The coverage was never triggered, and the carriers duties were limited to acknowledging, which the claim number does, and the BEGINNING of the investigation. Why the emphasis? The carrier cannot complete that investigation until the insured provides the contractually required performance accompanied with the correct documentation. That part, contrary to what we see, was never supposed to be done by the carrier… they are the ones who owe the money…
See you in Camp.
