  • 12 Ways to Spot Underinsurance 12 Ways to Spot Underinsurance Lorna Harrington, Director, Barrett, Corp & Harrington Ltd Recorded: Feb 12 2014 45 mins
    By way of case studies of buildings, Lorna will take you on a whistle-stop tour of 12 common ways to spot ‘the likely suspects’ of where underinsurance is sure to be found.

    It is the insured’s responsibility to set the buildings sum insured but how do they know that it is correct? Experience suggests that brokers are asked to advise and clients seek help from inappropriate web based information. Neither is best practice and the former is a sure route to litigation. Even if the insured has built the property themselves, the figure is unlikely to be the correct base on which to set the insurance policy.

    The aim of the session is to help insurance professionals highlight cases where a valuation should be an integral part of the risk management strategy. It will broaden the audience’s knowledge so that the conversation about underinsurance does not take place in front of a burnt out building.

Prior to setting up BCH in 2006, Lorna had worked at Cunningham Lindsey as a Risk Solutions Manager, AIG Private Client Group as the Residential Services Manager and at Chubb Insurance as an Appraisal Manager for Chubb Masterpiece.
