Dealing with business and commercial insurance claims
To help businesses determine their eligibility to make a financial claim from an existing policy, we offer a fixed fee service of £750 plus VAT.
Examining the insurance documents will help to determine the cover available and our team will then offer detailed advice on the possible outcomes.
We can also:
- Advise upon the merits of challenging an insurer where a claim has been rejected.
- Consider whether the conclusions reached by brokers in respect of cover are correct.
- Advise whether a broker potentially has liability where a business and/or individual faces a lack of cover.
As it is usually a condition of insurance cover that claims are notified to the insurer promptly, it is crucial that we are contacted as soon as possible in order to assess your eligibility to make a claim.
