Property insurance claim? – Is your business in the capable hands of a loss assessor?

Every Business minded person knows that to succeed in business you need to have the confidence to let go occasionally, and allow somebody more suitably experienced and qualified to deal with an issue at hand.

Many successful businesses realise the value of outsourcing non-key resources to an outside company, particularly when there’s a level of expertise involved that cannot be found internally within the business. When a company is affected by water or fire damage, the same should apply so that instead of you grappling with complex policy wording and legal jargon, at a time when your focus should be on the clean-up operation, you hire an expert to protect your rights and maximise your chance of success.

The value of appointing a professional loss assessor has never been so high. Insurance companies will notoriously draw upon legal loop holes and policy short print to try and wriggle out of claims and unless you have experience within the insurance industry, you’ll find it incredibly difficult to negotiate. The value of fire damage to businesses every year far exceeds the settlements paid out by insurance companies, which means hiring a loss assessor to oversee your property insurance claim is the only sensible option.

As a business, you can appoint a loss assessor to take on your insurance claim at any time. However, the way a claim is prepared and presented is just as critical to the outcome as the way it is negotiated and eventually settled which means it’s far better to appoint a loss assessor as soon as you discover the damage.

Geoff Williams, director of Manchester-based loss assessor Cherry and Griffiths, said: “We would always encourage businesses to get in touch with us right away so we can move things along quickly but it’s never too late. At Cherry and Griffiths, we willingly take on difficult and contentious claims and actively market our ability to deal with such matters.

“Whether it’s the preparation of a complicated accountancy-based claim or disputing legal issues which arise out of policy wording, our professional loss assessors are in the best possible position to represent your business and recover the settlement required”.
