Upcoming Miami Seminar: Peculiarities around hotel timeshare Business Interruption claims, a holistic approach during a typically difficult claims handling process

logo_insurance_meeetings_MiamiCalculation of payable Business Interruption losses sustained by time share facilities, by they own nature and more often than not, tend to have associated difficulties that typically bring about a number of unwanted complications, usually  exacerbated by a lack of clear insurance wordings; lack of quality documentation thus entailing difficulties in the calculation of the ultimate loss of earnings exposure sustained by the Insured; lack of understanding from part of the insured of the concept of salvage and recovery process; unwanted frictions between all stakeholders.

In order to mitigate those factors that can jeopardize a good claims handling result, the need of a precise understanding of the Insured business is a must, the high level technical knowledge which is necessary to understand real exposures,  getting all stakeholders together at regular intervals to corroborate the understanding of loss and its calculation, keep up with a good level of communication and at all times setting expectations of all parties at a reasonable level of reality, are a must which will bring about benefits, amongst others a swift and reasonable settlement process; albeit entailing a significant level of work and effort from part of a team of independent claims accountants and adjusters that makes it all worthwhile.

With our latest experience on this we proved it can be successfully done!
