Third Party Claims
For Chubb policyholders with liability insurance policies, our claim service includes protecting their interests when others

Within 24 to 48 hours of receiving the loss notice, we begin contacting the key parties to initiate our investigation, with
the objective of determining our policyholder's legal liability and evaluating the damages sustained.
If it is determined that our policyholder bears responsibility for a loss, we attempt to conclude the claim for an amount
which fairly compensates the injured party or parties. We seek to reach resolutions promptly on meritorious cases. Claims
involving no liability on the part of our policyholders will be vigorously defended at all levels.
We carefully manage all aspects of the litigation process: in coordination with defense counsel and where appropriate, we
use alternate dispute resolution methods to aid in reaching settlements. These methods often provide a more timely and cost
