When you make a Business Impact Damage Insurance Claim

Your Insurer after yOU
make a Business Impact Claim

The Insurance Company will apply many different techniques to try to reduce your claim or even refuse to payout. Your policy will be worded generically in a fashion that often suits them. As Insurance Claims Management specialists, often known as Loss Assessors, we will handle all meetings and technical interpretations of your policy to ensure you receive your full entitlement.

Property Insurance Claims require several disciplines to comprehensively present the claim in a format that is instantly recognisable to your Insurance Company. Our Surveyors are Chartered members of RICS or CIOB & our Structural Engineers are affiliated on a similar basis and deal only with Insurance related claims.

The specifications produced by these specialists are then costed by a Chartered Building Company & compiled by our experienced Claims Technicians for consideration of settlement by your Insurers. You approve every stage of this process including draft documents & settlement proposals for Impact Damage.
