Emma Murphy, BA ACII, joined Murphy Loss Assessors in 1995 and so has over 19 years’ experience in the loss assessing industry. Murphy Loss Assessors was founded by Norbert Murphy and has been dealing with insurance claims since then. Emma graduated with an honours in business studies degree in 1994. Since then she has studied with the Chartered Insurance Institute and has achieved the highly recognised qualification of ACII (CII Advanced Diploma in Insurance). Emma continues her education development and ensures her knowledge is kept current under the Continuing Professional Development run by the Insurance Institute of Ireland.
Emma has worked with many complex property claims in both the residential and commercial sectors over the years and has gained extensive experience in both areas including understanding policy cover and wordings / endorsements and claims procedures. In commercial claims the main emphasis after a loss is to ensure the continuing success of the affected business. This can only be achieved by a rapid response and a detailed analysis of the business to ensure that the best course of action is taken early such as setting up temporary offices / premises, out sourcing production, to ensure the continued success of the affected business in the long term. Insurers cover the business’ loss of turnover while repair works are taking place but the bigger picture of the long term survival of the company must be addressed to ensure the customer is fully protected.
Emma is also a member of The Institute of Public Loss Assessors and The Irish Claims Consultants Association.
