JLT recognise a fast and effective claims service as a key JLT deliverable. We also consider a superior claims service to be of critical importance and relevant to the effective management and treatment of risks and exposures. At JLT we treat claims as a critical front office function and act as our clients’ “claims advocates”, not as a back office function nor we do not act just as “claims administrators”.
What is Claims Management?
Claims Management consists of consultation or services in respect of claims for compensation, restitution, repayment or any other remedy for loss or damage, or in regards to some other obligation. Claims management services cover litigation, and claims under regulation schemes or voluntary arrangements. JLT provides claims management services in four key areas:
- Insured claims
- Uninsured incidents
- Claims below the policy deductible
- Uninsured recoveries
Benefits of Claims Management
A significant impact on premium reduction can often be achieved by taking a proactive approach to claims management. Claims Specialists will actively support the claims process with a view to resolving outstanding claims as quickly as possible by providing direct access to relevant specialists and allowing you to maintain your focus on your business. Our emphasis is on the early resolution of claims. We make sure we assess the need for external and selective specialists / assessors at the outset of a claim. We secure insurers early agreement to progress payments proactively, and pursue recoveries where ever possible and necessary.
