Notify the Company
The first step in the claim process is for the policyholder (known as “the insured”) to notify the Company about loss. The insured can contact the insurance agent, who will then notify the company or the insured may notify the company directly. In either method insured will be expected to provide some basic information: When the loss occurred; The Policy number, the names and contact information of the people involved (if the loss was an accident involving another person); a description of what happened; whether anyone was injured; a description of any property that was damaged; and locations where the claim surveyor can inspect the damaged property along with the contact number of the person (Insured or someone acting on behalf of insured).
The company after receiving the intimation and ensuring that Policy is in force will appoint a surveyor to survey the claim. He will determine whether the insurance applies to the loss (Claim is payable or not). If he concludes that the insurance does not apply, he will inform the insured of that and close the process (and will issue the No Loss Report to us, on behalf of that report we will further write to insured about the basis on what the loss has been rejected) . If he determines that the insurance does (or at least, might) apply, he will investigate further. He may inspect damaged property; interview the insured and any witnesses; and speak with physicians, contractors, mechanics or anyone else involved in treating injuries or repairing damage who seems to be involved and need to been inquired or investigated. Documents are sought by the surveyors relevant to the claim. Please note that the surveyors are instructed to issue report within 30 days of being appointed and in either case he will furnish us a progress report enabling us to provide us the maximum customer satisfaction by processing his claim on time after all the required documents are received by the surveyors.
When the surveyor has gathered sufficient information, he will make a final determination as to whether coverage applies, if he concludes that coverage applies, he will develop an estimate.
At this point, the company is ready to make a settlement offer. For property damage, the offer will be for amounts to repair or replace the property. For injuries, the offer may include amounts for medical costs and any necessary therapy. The insured then has the choice of accepting the offer or rejecting it. Most insurance policies specify procedures for the insured and the company to follow in the event that they do not agree on a claim settlement, up to and including arbitration.
When an agreement is reached, the company will issue payments. These can go directly to the insured, to the repair shop or contractor doing the work, to health care providers, or to vendors. Once the company has made all agreed-on payments and the insured or injured person has signed a release, the claim surveyor closes the claim process.
