Recovery proceedings and investigation of circumstances

It goes without saying that an investigation of circumstances cannot and should not be viewed in isolation from a loss adjustment assignment. However, where claims involving personal or corporate liability are involved, a more detailed investigation is required than for 'simple' fire, theft and damage claims. In these, multiple factors need to be reviewed and it is sometimes possible to identify the remotest cause (causa remota) only after a process of elimination.

In an investigation of circumstances, a meticulously argued interpretation is given of such terms as:
- guilt
- culpability
- inadequate care and maintenance
- negligence
- liability
- (applicability of) terms and conditions of delivery

In short, investigation into those circumstances that can be of the utmost importance in careful consideration by an insurer, and can also form the basis for successful recovery proceedings.
