Please kindly explain, besides, please also kindly advise the meaning of the word "claim" in "...of those claims for which the insurance company..." and in "Claim for quality discrepancy". Thanks in advance!

IN CASE THE QUALITY AND/OR QUANTITY/WEIGHT ARE FOUND BY THE BUYER TO BE NOT IN COMFORMITY WITH THE CONTRACT AFTER THE ARRIVAL OF THE GOODS AT THE .

'Lodge a claim with the seller' = submit a formal for compensation from the seller (for inferior quality or short quantity). 'Claim' as the same meaning throughout: 'a request for compensation'.
