BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

On-site motors to speed up Japanese cat claims


TOKYO, Japan— Fuji Fire & Marine Insurance Co, the Japanese nonlife insurance company, plans to shortly introduce a new service to help it process claims in disaster-hit areas more effectively.

The company said that the service will use motor vehicles sent to disaster sites that will carry personal computers that can be hooked up to Fuji's computer system.

Fuji said that it took an average of 28 days to pay claims after last September's No. 13 typhoon.

It reckons that the new service will make it possible to make payments within three days at the earliest.
