A question which claims officers and underwriters address daily is “What caused the loss for which indemnity is sought?” This is a question which claims officers and underwriters address daily. On the face of it, that seems a fairly easy question to answer. However, in this webinar you will see that it may not be as straight forward as you may think.

This webinar is about the technique used to answer that question correctly, proximate cause.
