IN BUS FIRES THE ACTIONS YOU TAKE TODAY
You have experienced a Bus Fire loss and now you need to be made whole. Your bus may be for commercial use and it is costing you money each day it is out of service, or it may be a bus for school, church or a bus conversion. Whatever the use, correct, decisive, and timely decisions must be made now when there are Bus Fires. If you have insurance, the insurance company will work out a settlement with you on the loss, based upon your policy (if you and the insurance company cannot come to an agreement on the amount due you then you may want to explore the appraisal clause process. See Certified Appraisals). If you have an additional monetary loss due to a Bus Fire that is not covered under an insurance policy, such as a buildings, personal effects, motorized vehicles, etc. then you need to seek a remedy, that being for you to conduct your own independent Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation in order to collect the dollar amount from the negligent party.
An insurance company will most likely want to conduct a Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation, which will hopefully find the negligent party, so they can recover their loss. This procedure is handled through their Fire Subrogation Department. So where does it leave the owner/insured?
The owner/insured is generally not entitled to the results of any insurance company Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation. If the Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation does lead to litigation then the Certified Bus Fire investigator can usually only represent one party. The insurance company paid for the Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation and they are looking to only recover their loss pursuant to the policy. If the owner/insured wants to recover a loss then they must have their own Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigator present at the Bus Fire Investigation in order to represent their interest. If a Bus Fire Claim is made to a Bus Manufacturer for a loss by the owner/insured one of the first request of a Bus Manufacturer will be “provide us with a Certified Bus Fire Origin & Cause Investigation Report showing we are negligent”. If you cannot provide evidence to substantiate your position, then you most likely have no case and no recourse. On the other hand the insurance company has their Certified Bus Fie Origin & Cause Report and will attempt to collect.
