New Claims Trends Watch from @Riskonnect enables organizations to benchmark performance, uncover market shifts, & make better insurance-related decisions:

Based on aggregated U.S. property and casualty incident data from over 400 organizations across 20 industries, Riskonnect uncovered noteworthy insights, including:

  • Total incident volume is down 34% from April 2019 to April 2020, due to the dramatic drop in employees going into the workplace.
  • General liability incidents are 33% lower, as people spend less time at retailers and other public places, which reduces the risk of slip and fall incidents, property damage, and other personal injuries.
  • Auto liability incidents are declining by 58% as shelter-in-place orders spur a sharp decrease in overall mileage and accident frequency.
  • Workers’ compensation incidents are up 3% overall from January – April 2020, even with the shift to a mostly remote work environment. Without factoring in COVID-19-related incidents, volume in April 2020 declined by 32% compared to April 2019.

“Pandemic-driven volatility is impacting every aspect of business, including the incidents and insurance markets. While the total number of incidents is currently declining, which is good news for businesses that tend to face high-dollar claims, we expect to see an increase in the coming weeks as local economies re-open,” said Andrea Brody, chief marketing officer at Riskonnect. “We created this new series to help organizations understand evolving trends in the market, how their incident volume compares to peers, and where there could be new opportunities to save money and reduce risk.”
