Explanation:
Damaage in nautical and maritime contexts whether to hull or cargo is referred to as "average". (Corresponds to "avarie").

The insurance company for either hull or cargo which has sustained damage normally appoints an "expert" who is a generally a court-approved surveyor, and/or qualified adjuster.
