The difference between the ratios of premiums paid to an insurance company and the claims settled by the company. Loss ratio is the total losses paid by an insurance company in the form of claims. The losses are added to adjustment expenses and then divided by total earned premiums. So if a company pays $80 in claims for every $150 in collected premiums, then the company has a loss ratio of 53%.
