Strategies for Ensuring Efficient and Effective Investigations in Fire Claims

This presentation focuses on best practices for efficient and effective insurer investigations in fire claims. We discuss the interplay of post-loss duties in insurer investigations of fire losses. We also discuss the different types of Duties After Loss provisions currently in use in Florida, the current legal state of the requisite compliance necessary to avoid any material breach assertions, and the regulations and statutes (including the bad faith statute) impacting an insurer’s requests pursuant to the Duties After Loss provision. Finally, we also discuss strategies for ensuring productive, thorough, and efficient investigations that lead to efficient and effective Examinations Under Oath, if invoked by the insurer.
