Commercial Insurance Claims Process

1. Employee Priorities

Safety Comes First, Let’s Make Sure the Employees are Safe and Secure.

2. Mitigate Damages

The policyholder has responsibilities after filing a Commercial Insurance Claim. The insured is required to take immediate action to protect their property from incurring additional damage.

“The responsibility is to mitigate the damage in an attempt to minimize the amount of the loss to both the building and financial loss related to Business Interruption”.

Example: Secure an emergency tarp for the roof and have the water extracted from the building.

3. Establish a Plan

The insurance claim process will take significant time, so plan accordingly. If needed, secure an appropriate temporary location for your business to continue operating.

Your policy may afford coverage for this.

4. Coverage Determination

The policyholder should understand the terms and conditions of the insurance policy, including coverage amounts, coverage exclusions, limitations such as co-insurance penalties, various damage valuation methods, and their duties and responsibilities for filing a claim.
There are specific forms to be completed that are time-sensitive.

It’s very important that these requirements are met.

Don’t make costly mistakes!

5. Valuation of Damages

Claim Preparation and Documentation

The claim will be thoroughly investigated by our firm. An extensive inspection will be completed and documented with photos, detailed diagrams and scope notes etc… If needed, our team of Forensic Experts such as structural engineers and or window glazing experts will be engaged.

A final estimate will be prepared and our comprehensive package including a Proof of Loss will be presented to the insurance carrier.

6. Negotiation & Settlement

The claim will be reviewed in detail and adjusted by the insurance company and their experts. It is very common to have differences in the scope of work and the entire amount of the claim. Many times, additional adjuster meetings are necessary.

7. Claim Payment Process

Insurance Claim Payments
This is a three-check process.

Actual Cash Value Payment
This is the initial payment of the undisputed amount of the claim.

Deductible
This amount will be deducted from the claim and is the policyholder’s responsibility to pay to the contractor.

Recoverable Depreciation
This payment is released once all work listed in the insurance claim has been completed. The contractor provides a final invoice only for work completed. This is the notice to the insurance company to release recoverable depreciation. You must spend all the claim funds in order to recover the entire amount of recoverable depreciation.

Mortgage Company
Mortgage companies are listed as co-payees on claim checks typically when the entire claim amount exceeds $10,000.00.

8. Restoration of Property

You should not proceed with any permanent restoration or repair work until you have a written agreement with the insurance company.

*The insurance company estimate and check should be in your possession before work begins.

If replacement cost coverage applies, the actual repair and rebuild decisions will affect your recoverable depreciation and total claim recovery amounts.
