Premier Property Claims has vast and extensive experience of these impact damage insurance matters. When appropriate our claims handling service includes the engagement of associated structural engineers and other experts and advisors to comment on the cause and extent of damage and to offer their expert opinion on remedial works required.
Your insurance company is likely to appoint a Loss Adjuster or claims handler to deal with your claim but this is to protect their own interests. These representatives operate under heavy workloads and your claim may not be given the focus it deserves. Adjusters and Insurance Claims Inspectors do not prepare your claim, they adjust the claim you submit. Other expenses may be recoverable of which you are unaware. If you prematurely agree a claim with insurers it may be too late for them to subsequently reconsider additional items.
Insurance policy wordings are complex and difficult for a policyholder to understand and an insurer or their representative have the advantage, and will often attempt to construe the policy wording in their favour.

It is therefore essential that you are suitably (Who are FCA Regulated) represented by your own professional Loss Assessor as soon as possible after an impact incident is discovered to ensure the claim is properly and accurately presented and you receive the maximum benefit under the policy.
