Both the insurers and the insured consider ‘claim quantum’ a critical measure of success in any insurance claim settlement. The ‘claim quantum’ refers to the ‘amount one deserves’, or the estimated total value of damages. Often, the quantum is disputed due to varied interpretations of:

  • The concept of ‘actual loss sustained’
  • The Policy’s Basis of Settlement
  • PAWE assessments
  • Evidence required to prove the claim

Our team can help determine the quantum, providing the required evidence and justification to support our recommendations.

Unexpected damage and disruptions to daily operations can happen at any point during the lifecycle of a business. Damages can be caused by storms, floods, cyclones, fires, theft, accidents or malicious damage. To ensure that your business survives the impact of an unexpected event, it is important that you recover any lost gross profits and other insured out-of-pocket expenses.

Engaging an experienced financial professional to assist you in quantifying the damages and preparing your claim/s in accordance with the policy cover ensures that your full entitlements form part of the claim. Our team does a thorough job, providing our detailed findings in a clear and concise manner. This enables you to focus your energy on getting your business operations back on track, knowing that your claim is being looked after by a team of experts.

Preparing an insurance claim is a complex process – especially if you want to ensure that you are maximising your entitlements. It requires:

  • Understanding the key terms of the insurance policy
  • Understanding the factual circumstances of the damage event
  • Understanding the financial information of the business
  • Determining the key business drivers
  • Considering the effect of the loss event on the key drivers
  • Using appropriate loss quantification methodologies
  • Communicating this information to the insurer in an appropriate format

Our experts can assist with the claim preparation for material damage and business interruption. This can include:

  • Explaining what is covered by your policy
  • Quantifying the costs you have incurred to repair material damage
  • Reviewing invoices and collating supporting documents for the claim
  • Quantifying the business interruption loss in accordance with the insurance policy
  • Reviewing the insurance claim
  • Preparation of a comprehensive expert report quantifying the claim
  • Providing the report to the insurer

In most cases, the cost of claims preparation is covered by the insurance policy, allowing the claim to be prepared at no additional cost to your business.
