How Automatic Vehicle Inspections Simplify Insurance Claims

October 9, 2022 4:03 PM

Anyone who has ever been in a car accident knows how things usually go: the two sides discuss, look at the damage, each has his/her own opinion and in the end, inaccurate damage assessments are usually made. 

Once a vehicle makes its way to the garage, the insurance company will use an appraiser to assess the damage. The issue with manual inspections is that they are naturally subjective, and appraisers may notice certain damage and not others, and while they may try to remain reasonable and fair, it’s difficult to balance across the interests of three different parties: the claimant, the body shop and the insurance carrier. 

Wouldn’t it be great if there were an objective source of truth using today’s advanced technology? Here’s how Ravin AI’s automatic vehicle inspection can help both sides after an accident as well as simplify insurance claims post-accident. 

How Car Insurance Companies Typically Handle Vehicle Inspections After an Accident 

The world has advanced technologically but unfortunately, the car inspection industry has, in many cases, not yet moved beyond pen and paper. After an accident, the process is overwhelmingly manual and therefore, subjective. 

With today’s methods and technologies, not much can be done about the subjective nature of car inspections. However, digital vehicle inspection tools are changing the way the market works.

Why Using a Digital Vehicle Inspection Tool is More Beneficial for Insurance Claims

Integrating technology into vehicle inspections after accidents is a positive thing for all parties involved, from the drivers involved in the accident, the insurance company, and even the repair garage, who can prepare for the vehicle repair ahead of time. By integrating technology, such as Ravin AI’s solution, insurance providers can benefit from shorter cycle times and more transparent estimates. 

Furthermore, customers, inspectors, and drivers can benefit from: 

  1. Reduced claim cycle time from days/weeks/months to minutes. By integrating technology into the vehicle inspection process, things move much faster. This leads to more productive claim processes and of course, happier customers.
  2. Limit fraud and supplements. When integrating AI into the vehicle inspection process, the chances of fraud and additional supplements is highly limited, as the process is objective and the car is inspected before additional damages can be added to a claim. 
  3. Empower and create transparency between insurer, customer, and repair shop. Unfortunately, there can be a lot of tension between the parties involved after an accident (understandably in many cases as it’s a highly upsetting experience!). 

When a digital vehicle inspection is completed, there can be no doubt about fairness or possibly missing something. A computer and AI do the work!
