Benchmark Hail Reports and Lightning Strike Reports

Save time and loss adjustment expense using Hail Reports and Lightning Strike Reports from the Benchmark database. Assess quickly whether the reported peril and date of loss match the weather history at the property location and match the adjuster skill for the claim.

Hail Reports

  • On what dates has damaging hail occurred at the property historically?
  • Where did strong thunderstorms occur?
  • What’s the likelihood that wind-driven hail occurred possibly damaging the home’s roof, siding, windows or patio?
  • Is the reported date of loss correct?
  • Use either Hail Date of Loss report or the more detailed Hail History report to evaluate claims

Lightning Reports

  • On what dates has lightning occurred at or near the property?
  • How far away did the lightning strikes occur?
  • Does the reported date of loss seem correct?

Claims teams using the XactAnalysis® service from Xactware® Solutions can access Hail Date of Loss, Hail History or Lightning Strike reports directly within the XactAnalysis application. Save time by receiving peril analysis for each claim automatically, or request for weather claims as needed.
