Damage and loss appraisals can be challenging for even the most experienced appraisers. Herrick hosted the American Appraisers Association for a panel about appraiser liability in damage and loss.

Three expert panelists discussed:

  • How an appraiser should protect him or herself while providing a useful product for a client during a damage and loss appraisal
  • How to present market data while still protecting sources
  • Case studies about liability when preparing a damage and loss appraisal
  • Details on necessary information and in what capacities you may interact with insurance and legal representatives
