Your Loss Assessor will handle all aspects of the claims process A Loss Assessor represents policyholders when they need to submit an Insurance claim, and our members have experience in dealing with all types of claim, for both private individuals and businesses. Your Assessor will handle all aspects of the claims process, meeting with the Insurers’ representatives, the Loss Adjuster or any other professional appointed by them, preparing your claim and negotiating the best possible settlement for you. They will also handle cases where liability for your claim has been refused by insurers, or where problems have arisen regarding policy liability or delays.
Ensure you receive the full entitlement from your insurance policy
An insurance claim can be a devastating event for a business or household, and your insurers will appoint an expert to represent them in all negotiations. In order that you can receive the best possible advice, and ensure that you receive the full entitlement from your insurance policy, you should also have claims professionals working on your behalf, and appoint a member of the Institute to represent you. Please contact us with details of your claim and we will arrange for one of our members to contact you and advise how they can help.
If you are considering appointing an Assessor, please ensure that they are Regulated by the FSA, as all our members are. If you are unsure, you can visit the FSA website to check.
