ICA, Inc. Employment Page

CADO Admin 0 524 Article rating: No rating

"The unpredictable nature of catastrophe claims adjusting makes staffing a challenging prospect. Labor requirements fluctuate with windstorm, flood and seismic activity, creating the necessity for an “at-will” or “as needed” adjuster work force, rather than one based on a regular, full-time schedule. Extensive travel and lengthy stays away from home are often required.

Even with that caveat, ICA is continuously searching for quality outside property adjusters and commercial adjusters. We pride ourselves on our Quality Service to our customers and their policy holders. Qualifications should include specific insurance claims adjusting experience in your field of preference and adjuster licensing in your state of residence (if required). Individuals who have a background in a closely related field, such as automobile body repair or home construction, may also be considered for claims adjusting positions. Other requirements for claims adjusting positions include outstanding organizational skills and exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Computer literacy and excellent customer service skills are necessary."

House Fire--A simulated claim for discussion

 To kill some time in this lull period & spread some knowledge, here is the scenario (or scenarios) as you see fit to make it. I will lay out the limited info as follows, and let's see where it goes.

Heavy fire loss occurs in a single family dwelling. Cov is HO-3, no issues with eff dates. Insureds have just left home about 6:00 p.m., a couple hours before fire breaks out and is discovered. High winds fan the flames and each house on either side sustain heat/smoke damage before the fire is brought under control. Let's say both neighboring houses now have some melted vinyl siding, one sided 2 years ago and the other 12 years ago. The elderly neighbor next door initially beat on the insured's door trying to see if they were OK, and burned his hand. He then rushed home to get his wheelchair bound wife out of their house, but she spends a week in the hospital with smoke inhalation related complications.

The insureds are a young couple, both smokers, with a 6 year old son. They just moved in about 2 years ago, only work in the house since they came was replacing the kitchen flooring, and adding a center island with a new cooktop on it. These were professionally installed within the past 6 months.

You receive the claim assignment. The only loss info given is: Dwelling fire, appears to be total loss, possibly started in or near kitchen or in basement below kitchen. Neighbors have damage/injury.

When you 1st arrive at the loss, you are also "greeted" by Mr. Red Handed neighbor and his son-in-law who happens to be a well known plaintiff's attorney. You now discover that the neighbor is insured by the same carrier you are working for, but they haven't reported this loss to their agent yet because they've been waiting for you.

Now, where did you start, what is your plan of action, what do you find out, and how does this claim end? The stories will change as you will each come up with different findings in your investigation.

Old timers please hold your horses, and save critiques til later...thanx! Newbies & not-so newbies, jump in.
