Welcome to the Autumn edition of ITIC’s Claims Review
Welcome to the Autumn edition of ITIC’s Claims Review. Since the last edition we all seem to have been subject to various forms of lockdowns and travel restrictions, with many of us working from our homes. This may have been difficult at first but we seem to have become used to it now. In fact, ITIC has recently held its second board meeting since March via video conference.
The Claims Review provides a selection of cases recently handled by ITIC. We hope that these case histories will be of interest to members and will also help you to identify potential problems in order to avoid these types of situations occurring in your businesses.
In order to support the membership during these unprecedented times ITIC has issued a number of loss prevention publications. There is a dedicated Coronavirus resources page on the website https://www.iticinsure.com/knowledge/covid-19-information-and-resources. This page contains circulars for ship managers, shipbrokers and agents, along with a Coronavirus loss prevention business checklist: https://www.itic-insure.com/knowledge/itic-circular-coronavirus-loss-prevention-checklist-152100.
We have also seen an increase in fraud issues and would refer you to ITIC’s website’s fraud loss prevention area: https://www.itic-insure.com/knowledge/fraud.
In the last edition of the Claims Review, we introduced an “ask the editor” section and would like to extend our thanks to those of you who submitted questions. Please send any questions that you may have to askeditorCR@thomasmiller.com
