Pensacola Expert Witness
& Insurance Appraisal

When a property is damaged by an insurance-covered peril, the restoration work is often less challenging and time consuming than the valuation of the claim. Insurance adjusters are not contractors and cannot be expected to accurately value complex claims involving historic or unique structures. Often damages are hidden or more complicated than what an adjuster can uncover and value in a brief inspection. In many cases, insurance companies rely heavily on Contractors with specialized knowledge of insurance restoration and the preparation of insurance-approved estimates.

Our President and Principal Owner, Halley Lovato, and the team at Highpointe DBR have a wealth of experience in insurance restoration work. We are well known for our ability to work with insurance companies and properly value claims. Highpointe provides expert witness testimony and insurance claim support for litigation, as well as Insurance Appraisal and Umpire services.

We are here to help properly value your claim and to restore the damaged property. Contact us for any assistance or 24 hour emergency services.

Appraisal & Umpire

When property owners find themselves facing damages from an insured peril, the process of rebuilding is only part of the task at hand. Generally speaking, the first step in the process of restoring a loss is to value the damages and agree to the amount of loss covered by insurance. What sounds simple enough is often the most complex and time consuming aspect of the job. When insurance companies and property owners fail to agree on the value of a loss, INSURANCE APPRAISAL is a process by which the conflict can often be resolved quickly and efficiently without the expense and delays of litigation.
