3 Costly Consequences of Late Claims Reporting

When an insured reports a claim late, it might be too late to reverse pending legal action. Timely claims reporting, therefore, is a must.

White Paper Summary

Claims are unpredictable. Even the best insurance carriers and their insureds cannot anticipate the rise of a new claim before it occurs. However, that does not mean the insurer and insured can’t be prepared to handle claims as they arise.

A clear claims handling strategy is a must for every business, and that starts at the onset of the relationship between policyholder and insurer. Open, honest communication is key in order for the policyholder to receive the right coverage from the insurer for its unique set of risks.

Building a strong partnership at the very beginning also benefits all participants in case a claim does arise.
