Insurance Surveyors And Loss Assessors

Insurance Surveyors And Loss Assessors

A Surveyor or a Loss Assessor is relevant for general insurance business, where assessment of the loss of the subject matter insured is very important for deciding the claim amount. As general insurance contracts are indemnity contracts in nature, the amount paid by the insurance company cannot exceed the amount of actual loss incurred. The job of the Surveyor or a Loss Assessor is therefore to arrive at the exact amount of loss incurred and his role is critical to a general insurer.
