In today’s fast paced environment where communication is 24/7 and people are busy with work and life, it is hard to get time from all the distractions to concentrate on the important stuff that has to be done, but which can be a chore to do. Many people rely on insurance brokers to place their insurance cover, because the broker can take all the details once and come back with the best range of covers and quotes for the most suitable products. They are professional in what they do and are able to get the best outcome for their client to source a product that best suits their needs.
When it comes to dealing with a claim, the home or business owner needs to get estimates for repairs and replacement, compile and submit their claim, and negotiate with an expert claims handler. Some insurers are sending out builders to provide estimates for repairs to the building. However they are engaged by the Insurer and there is little or no independent oversight for the home owner. They only deal with the building repairs and not with the contents damage or the alternative accommodation requirements. Many homeowners feel intimidated by the process, and they still have to fend for themselves, to get a conclusion, whilst having to deal with insurers and their builder.
What has all this got to do with mindfulness, I hear you ask?
Dealing with an insurance claim requires mindfulness. It requires concentrating on what information needs to be gathered, what estimates need to be obtained, what paperwork needs to be compiled, who to send it to and where, how to respond to queries and how to negotiate with the experts on the Insurance Company’s side. If there are grey areas (and there are many grey areas in insurance) it requires careful reading and interpretation of policy wordings. Engaging a public loss assessor will take all the hassle and stress off the policyholder and ensure that a ‘mindful’ professional will ensure that the claim is properly documented and negotiated to a successful conclusion.
