Marine damage insurance appraisals
Marine or nautical casualty damages
Marine casualty damages are quite frequent and their value is usually so high that it becomes vital for owners of boats involved in claims to be covered by adequate insurance policies and to rely on experienced and competent appraisers.
This type of damage can cover not only damage caused to one’s own vessel by weather events or mishandling but also damage to other vessels, port infrastructure, or people.
The marine damage insurance appraisal
The marine damage insurance appraisal is a multifaceted process that must take into account multiple factors.
First of all, the appointed appraiser will have to make focused investigations to define the condition of the boat(s) involved in the accident before the accident happened.
These investigations are necessary to establish the objective value of damaged boats but also to verify any liability arising from poor maintenance of these boats.
Any damage reported by infrastructure, property, and people involved in the boating accident must then be assessed.
