What does a loss assessor do?


A loss assessor works for the insurance policy holder when they are making an insurance claim. Usually a policy holder will engage a loss assessor to handle a claim on their behalf, in order to make a stronger claim in a shorter period of time, and to remove the stress of dealing with the insurance company themselves. A loss assessor is typically only engaged for substantial insurance claims.
