Understanding insurance claims

CCTV footage has become indispensable in validating insurance claims. It serves as a reliable source to establish the facts surrounding an incident, whether it’s property damage, theft, or workplace injury. 

For instance, in theft cases, CCTV can either prove or disprove the occurrence of the event, thereby determining the liability.

The role of CCTV in insurance claims

An insurance claim is a formal request by an individual or a business to an insurance company for coverage or compensation for a covered loss or policy event. These claims can vary, including property damage, liability claims, and workers’ compensation. 

Liability, often overlooked, is a critical aspect of loss prevention. It involves being responsible for damages or injuries to another party and should be a key focus in any robust asset protection strategy.

Optimizing CCTV for effective coverage

An effective CCTV system should cover all areas without blind spots, ensuring complete surveillance of the premises. Adequate local video retention is essential to avoid losing crucial footage before its necessity is realized.
