Damage assessment by an independent expert
Unexpectedly you have damage to your boat. You contact your insurer and you will be informed that they want to see a statement of the costs.
It is of great importance that this assignment is made by an independent expert. Because an independent expert has no other interest than your interest.
Even if your insurer’s expert has already visited, an independent expert is the right person to carry out a counter-assessment. After all, you want to know whether your insurer’s expert has not missed out on things, or perhaps made a wrong estimate. In case of a disagreement about the cause of the damage or the amount of the costs, you can also ask the independent expert to give his or her opinion.
