What is a Loss Assessor
A Loss Assessor is a professional who is engaged in the preparation, negotiation and settlement of insurance claims on behalf of commercial and private policyholders.
Your Assessor will handle all aspects of the claims process, meeting with the Insurance companies’ appointed Loss adjustor or other representatives preparing your claim and negotiating the best possible settlement for you.
A Loss Assessor helps relieve stress by taking over the handling and communication of your claim with insurance companies.
A Loss assessor works for you the Policyholder) NOT the insurance company.
What is a Loss Adjustor
A Loss Adjustor is an insurance professional who has been instructed to act on behalf of the insurance company. They are instructed and paid by the insurance company to represent their interests.
It is not the role of the Loss Adjuster to advise you or to prepare your claim. They will inspect the claim and once the claim has been submitted they will inevitably adjust the claim downwards in order to minimise the outlay for their client the insurance company.
An adjustor works on behalf of the Insurance Company NOT the policyholder.
