No. They employ loss adjusters to look after their own interests and it is perfectly acceptable to them if you choose to employ someone to act on your behalf.
Hiring a loss assessor will never prejudice your claim or negatively impact how your insurer treats you.
However, your insurer will likely advise that they will not cover an assessor’s costs – this is standard and ensures that the assessor is completely focused on getting the best outcomes for you, the claimant.
Your insurer may also specify that any loss assessor you engage is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Even if your insurer does not suggest it, we believe this is critical requirement of any loss assessor and are proud that Imperial Claims Consultants are fully approved by the Financial Conduct Authority.
