APPROACH AND PROCESS

Our investigative services extend to clients in all areas of insurance, loss, and loss mitigation. Typically, an assignment begins with a phone call, letter, fax or email from a potential client. During the initial client
interview process, we request certain specific information relating to the case. Items such as the following may be discussed:

• Type of loss
• Date of loss
• Name and address of Insured
• Name and address of Claimant, if different
• Policy number
• Claim Number
• Name & telephone number of contact person at Adjuster’s Office
• Estimated value of claim
• General outline of policy coverage

Additionally, we solicit other general information that may be
available:

• Any records and documents already obtained or available
• Any pertinent information in Adjuster’s file
• Circumstances of this loss

If no records or documentation are available from a client or adjuster, we may choose to prepare additional requests for data, directly to the parties involved, their representatives, or any associated insurance providers always copying our client on the communications. Depending on the circumstances, we may also contact the parties involved to arrange an appointment and begin the forensic investigation at the
location of damage, loss, or accident.

If the client has obtained records and documents, we will request that they be forwarded to us. After examination, we will consult with the client to agree on the plan for the investigation.
