Report a Claim
The single most important element in claims management is claims reporting. It is imperative that a claim be reported as soon as possible. Each day that passes makes it more difficult to conduct a full investigation and reduces Risk Management’s ability to effectively manage the claim.
Early reporting allows for the prompt identification of witnesses and the ability to interview individuals while memories are fresh. Also, experience has shown that early contact and communication with the claimant greatly reduces the likelihood of litigation. Because legal fees associated with litigation can be quite costly and the process can be a lengthy one, both sides benefit when litigation is avoided.
From a property standpoint, timely claim reporting can help mitigate structural damage and reduce service interruption time.
