Can’t Touch This: the Do’s and Don’ts of Emergency Services/Repairs

September 24, 2015

Although emergency services/repairs are performed to mitigate a loss, if not properly conducted, they can also destroy essential evidence you need to confirm or deny an insurance claim.

Join Origin and Cause experts for a webinar “Can’t touch this: The do’s and don’ts of emergency services/repairs” to hear how to properly complete emergency services/repairs and preserve evidence on the onset of three types of claims: structural losses, automotive losses and fires and explosions.
