During his entire career as a loss adjuster, Mr. Thomas Yap had gained vast experience in all classes of general insurance claims, in particular major property damage and financial losses, specializing in Business Interruption losses following physical property damage. He is often approached to give advice on matters related to this class of insurance, including coverage and complex issues on business interruption claims. He had also worked in Hong Kong and Taiwan, was involved in handling complex business interruption claims involved semi-conductors and telecommunication losses in the 921 earthquake in 1999.
From his hands on experience handling claims and also supervising claims handled by fellow adjusters, Mr. Thomas Yap noticed a major contributing factor on delay in business interruption insurance claim settlement is the lack of professional advice to claimants, in particular complex business interruption claims. It is our aim to take the service available to the public that includes corporate and individual claimants, insurance intermediaries, solicitors and accountants.
Business interruption insurance policy is a contract document between insurance company and policyholder. A typical business interruption insurance policy wording in many instances may not fully provide or explain clearly the intended cover of modern businesses in particular commodity related industries. Consequently it more than often creates grey areas in the intended cover thus gives rise to dispute in interpretation of policy coverage in the event of claim. With Mr. Thomas Yap’s vast experience in dealing with complex business interruption insurance claims across a wide spectrum of industries, we are in a position to provide claim review service to insurance companies on complex or disputed claims when a second opinion is warranted. We offer mediation service as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) that is saving time and money for everyone involved.
