Judgment upon the award rendered in such arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. All fees and expenses of the arbitration shall be borne by the parties equally. However, each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses, and preparation and presentation of proofs. The arbitrators are precluded from awarding punitive, treble, or exemplary damages, however so denominated. If more than one Insured is involved in the same dispute arising out of the same coverage and relating to the same loss or claim, all such Insureds will constitute and act as one party for the purposes of the arbitration. Nothing in this clause will be construed to impair the rights of the Insureds to assert several, rather than joint, claims or defenses.
The following provisions apply to all Coverage except Baggage/Personal Effects Loss and Baggage Delay :
NOTICE OF CLAIM. Written notice of claim must be given to the Insurer or its designated representative within twenty (20) days after a covered loss first begins or as soon as reasonably possible. Notice should include the Insured's name and policy number.
PROOF OF LOSS . The Claimant must send the Insurer, or its designated representative, proof of loss within ninety (90) days after a covered loss occurs or as soon as reasonably possible.
PAYMENT OF CLAIMS . The Insurer, or its designated representative, will pay a claim after receipt of acceptable proof of loss. Benefits for loss of life are payable to Insured's beneficiary. If a beneficiary is not otherwise designated by the Insured, benefits for loss of life will be paid to the first of the following surviving preference beneficiaries: a) Your spouse; b) Your child or children jointly; c) Your parents jointly if both are living or the surviving parent if only one survives; d) Your brothers and sisters jointly; or e) Your estate. All other claims will be paid to the Insured. In the event the Insured is a minor, incompetent, or otherwise unable to give a valid release for the claim, the Insurer may make arrangement to pay claims to the Insured's legal guardian, committee, or other qualified representative. All or a portion of all other benefits provided by this coverage may, at the option of the Insurer, be paid directly to the provider of the service(s). All benefits not paid to the provider will be paid to the Insured. Any payment made in good faith will discharge the Insurer's liability to the extent of the claim. The applicable benefit amount will be reduced by the amount of benefits, if any, previously paid by other Insurance Policies. In no event will the Insurer reimburse the Insured for an amount greater than the amount paid by the Insured. With respect to Sickness and Accident Medical Expense, under New York law, certain mandated benefits may be provided as applicable under this type of plan.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION AND AUTOPSY . The Insurer, or its designated representative, at their own expense, have the right to have the Insured examined as often as reasonably necessary while a claim is pending. The Insurer, or its designated representative, also have the right to have an autopsy made unless prohibited by law.
The following provisions apply to Baggage/Personal Effects Loss and Baggage Delay Coverage only:
NOTICE OF LOSS.

PROOF OF LOSS. The Insured must furnish the Insurer, or its designated representative, with proof of loss. This must be a detailed sworn statement. It must be filed with the Insurer, or its designated representative within ninety (90) days from the date of loss. Failure to comply with these conditions shall invalidate any claims under this coverage.
SETTLEMENT OF LOSS . Claims for damage and/or destruction shall be paid after acceptable proof of the damage and/or destruction is presented to the Insurer and the Insurer has determined the claim is covered. Claims for lost property will be paid after the lapse of a reasonable time if the property has not been recovered. The Insured must present acceptable proof of loss and the value involved to the Insurer.
VALUATION. The Insurer will not pay more than the actual cash value of the property at the time of loss. Damage will be estimated according to actual cash value with proper deduction for depreciation. At no time will payment exceed what it would cost to repair or replace the property with material of like kind and quality.
DISAGREEMENT OVER SIZE OF LOSS . If there is a disagreement about the amount of the loss, either the Insured or the Insurer can make a written demand for an appraisal. After the demand, the Insured and the Insurer will each select their own competent appraiser. After examining the facts, each of the two appraisers will give an opinion on the amount of the loss. If they do not agree, they will select an arbitrator. Any figure agreed to by 2 of the 3 (the appraisers and the arbitrator) will be binding. The appraiser selected by the Insured is paid by the Insured. The Insurer will pay the appraiser they choose. The Insured will share equally with the Insurer the cost for the arbitrator and the appraisal process.
