Underwriters have become more involved in the management of claims and it is no longer sufficient to simply ask Underwriters to pay large sums in the way of claims without them being aware of developments and being given the opportunity to share in decision making when necessary. The way claims are handled is therefore changing and we see our job as being responsible to both the Assured and the Underwriters.Claims
