As Loss Adjusters McLarens Young International,

independently facilitate the settlement of insurance claims.

Generally acting on the instructions of an insurance company,

McLarens Young International

branches will take instructions from an insurer to make an inspection of damage, investigate and report the cause and make recommendations regarding how best to reinstate the damage or settle the claim. In most typical cases the settlement of the claim is ultimately determined by the contract of insurance (the insurance policy) between the insurer and insured parties.

We also manage reinstatement projects for self-insured organisations.

Once an insurance claim has been accepted by an insurer,
