Perils overview

Perils are the cause(s) of loss that are added to the claim file after submitting the FNOL. The perils added on the Perils screen will populate the Loss Cause(s) dropdown in the Cause/Peril section of the claim file’s Details screen. To access the Perils screen, select System Admin, and then select Perils. When you add a peril, you will be required to name and code the peril.

Within the Perils screen, you can add, edit, and remove perils. For more information, see Manage perils.

Usage consideration

Before removing a peril, it is recommended that you analyze the impact of removing the peril. For example, removing perils that have been used on closed claims can still have a negative impact on reports from a prior reporting history.
