For adjusters, claim preparers, and loss assessors, reading the policy is one of the first steps in a new claim. We look for the values insured, the methods of reinstatement, and whether or not other policies might be relevant. The questions are already building: what are the values at risk compared to these sums insured? What remedies might insurers need to take? Is a gross profit or gross earnings calculation more appropriate for the insured? Is this a local policy, and might a master policy be applicable?
Aruna Chandrapalan, Melissa Cunningham, and Mark Harris will present several cases around these topics using real examples. In this webinar, we aim to discuss how issues may arise, remedies experienced, and the potential difficulties in communication with an insured. Ultimately, we will communicate the need to read and explain the fine print of the policy.*
