The Sky is the Limit: Using Drones in Claims Investigations
May 29, 2019
Drones have been used in claims investigations for several years now, having been recognized for their unique abilities and advantages. They are able to access hazardous spaces and cover large geographic areas; document scenes in incredible detail without disturbing evidence; and lower operational costs through improved efficiency and effectiveness. And their usefulness is not limited to investigations. Drones can also assist contractors and adjusters in the rebuilding process.
However, the insurance industry is not alone in adopting drone technology. There has been a marked increase in the number of drones in Canadian airspace, and this has compelled Transport Canada to introduce some of the strictest operating regulations in the world. These new rules and penalties are of particular importance to anyone piloting or employing drones for commercial use – including insurers.
In this webinar we will be discussing:
- Claim scenarios where drones can be an asset
- How drones can aid in investigations
- Drone systems and equipment
- Case studies
