Plan for Catastrophic Claims
Catastrophic weather is a risk that is difficult to predict, making it a stressful liability for businesses. In early spring, AccuWeather predicted an increase of tornado activity outside the more predictable "Tornado Alley," which leads to the unpredictability of seasonal fluctuations, wreaking havoc and devastation on customers and clients. The insurance industry is acutely aware that with severe weather, claims managers will see a rapid increase in new claims from claimants looking for expedited claim resolution so they can begin to repair or rebuild.
Risk and Workloads
Planning for catastrophe claims is not new, and calculating risk is understanding they can strike at any time. It is easier to determine whether risks associated with geographic conditions are calculable with predictive modeling solutions. Utilizing integrated workflow tools such as linking policies and location maintenance to catastrophe claims is essential to efficiently process those claims.
As with all disasters, claims administrators look to expedite claims from first notice of loss to closure. Naturally, there is also an uptick in workload on adjusters when catastrophe strikes. We can lessen the workload by business automation, letter templates, and autofill capabilities from HR databases, allowing adjusters to communicate and close catastrophe claims quickly.
