Claim Investigations Legal Brief
The purpose of this course is to better equip you in your professional activities as an Insurance Agent or Insurance Adjuster.
Welcome to the Claim Investigations Legal brief continuing education course. This course studies the claims adjuster’s overarching purpose… “to fulfill the insurance company’s contractual promises and legal obligations”. An insurance claim is truly where the “rubber meets the road” as regards the promise made by the insurance company to indemnify the insured for either a first-party loss or third-party legal liability claim against the insured. You will review how claims adjusters fulfill their duty by completing the following activities: coverage verification, claims investigation, claims evaluation, and claims resolution. You will also study claims handling criteria: promptness and fairness; meeting the requirements of the law; meet the expectations of the insured; the control of claims administration cost; and control claims payment cost.
