Insurance is an ancient endeavor. Its rich history spans from today all the way back to the Roman Empire, and arguably before then. It would be virtually impossible to encapsulate the full breadth of the P&C industry’s regulatory and legislative underpinnings—to say nothing of disasters both man-made and natural.
In the featured timeline, you’ll find information about landmark losses and litigation to highlight a pivotal stage in not only modern-day P&C claims handling but also the history of Claims Magazine.
We have confined the timeline primarily to events occurring since 1953, the year when Claims Magazine first emerged (though it was published
under the name of California Insurance Adjuster at the time), but have included select losses preceding this 60-year period for educational purposes.
We hope you will find this interactive resource both engaging and informative.
