Insurance 101 – Chapter 15 – Volume 82 – Arson Investigation Team

Arson Investigation Team

There is no question that the team approach suggested above will be expensive. The adjuster must consider whether such a team would be a cost-effective approach to the investigation required. If not, the team can be reduced to the essentials that are needed, in a cost-effective manner, to thoroughly investigate the fire. The adjuster should recognize,  however, that to allow a person who commits arson-for-profit to succeed, no matter how small the dollar amount, is never cost effective and should make that fact clear to the insurer’s management.
