At what stage should I employ a Loss Assessor?
At the earliest opportunity as your insurance company will appoint a Loss adjuster to come and meet with you within a few days of the incident occurring. The adjuster is there to investigate the circumstances of the incident on behalf of your insurers; so, it is important that you have someone independent to represent you from day one. However, we are able to assist with claims that are already in progress.
