Some mistakenly select a Diminishment of Value source by shopping for the consultant who promises to get them the highest settlement. This might sound like a great idea, but it usually is not. Why? Many of these “experts” are either representing one side only. In other words their “opinions” are usually skewed and often not fact-based. Most are not properly licensed adjusters in your state. Ask. Be sure who you're hiring.
An objective 3rd party should not modify a correct DOV or ACV settlement to accommodate one side or the other. This is important….a skewed “doctored” settlement number by you or the insurance company will usually not be acceptable and will often result in civil court. In the end, if you get anything at all, it will cost you much time and treasure. How about the revolutionary idea of both parties dealing with real fact based settlement numbers on the front end?!
Make sure that your chosen consultant is licensed and most importantly, check their Google Reviews.
A fact based DOV or ACV number should settle quickly and should also not end up in court. It pays to have a licensed and bonded objective 3rd party adjuster in your corner!
