Insurance and Risk Assessment from Altitude : 10 Industries in 10 Days – What You See, What We See!
The insurance industry has always had a struggle with post-disaster insight.
That’s because big disasters involve big risk from an inspection perspective – it has always been extremely difficult for insurance adjustors to get fast, rapid and detailed insight on new natural and man-made disasters.
And that is why drone technology has become such a powerful benefit to the insurance industry – it allows for fast, detailed insight that helps post-disaster analysis, with a dramatic lessening of risk.
Here’s a quick video to give a bit of insight in that regard.
What You See
Limited amount of scope and extent of damage.
Most natural and man-made disasters place significant limitations on what an insurance adjuster can see – earthquakes, fires and floods by their very nature immediately limit access – and it can be very difficult to get a proper assessment in a short period of time to properly analyze damage.
Yet it is the very urgency of that insight that is necessary to properly assess forthcoming claims.
What We See
A drone flyover can remove many of these limitations.
There is no doubt that you have seen many news reports recently which have carried dramatic footage captured by drone of natural and man-made disasters. News organizations discovered this fact quite some time ago.
And it is for this very same reason that a drone company is a valuable partner to post-disaster assessment, including some of the following insights that can be provided:
- Site surveys and site assessments
- Collection of data for PR management
- Environmental planning and assessment
- Safety and hazard risk assessment
- Detailed digital mapping information for ArcGIS and other onsite mapping tools
- Assess utility and infrastructure damage
- Before/after maps of impacted areas
- Developing a disaster response strategy
Drones can help to provide the information that you need to help make decisions and act when disaster strikes.
