To assist us in achieving this, we set out below some guidelines to follow:

?  Description of incident
?  Date and Time
?  Location where circumstances originated
?  Estimate value of loss
?  Action being taken to minimise loss

 LOSS MINIMISATION

Action should be immediately taken to protect property from further damage but no action should be taken to repair damage until instructed by us, your insurer or the Loss Adjusters.  

 

 OWN PROPERTY DAMAGE

All losses should be reported as soon as possible to us and we will arrange for either a claim form to be sent or if required a Loss Adjusters to be appointed to take whatever action is required.  

 

 THEFT AND MONEY

If the loss is due to Theft/Burglary or involves the loss of money, the Police should be contacted immediately and details kept of the officer and station notified. All losses should also be reported and the police report number advised to us as soon as possible.  

 

 MONEY VEHICLE - OWN DAMAGE

All accidents involving your motor vehicle/s should be reported immediately to either our office or the nearest office of your Insurer.
The vehicle may be towed to the closest repairer capable of rectifying the damage.

The claim processing is expedited if a completed claim form can be left at the repairer's premises before the visit by the Loss Adjuster.

If there are any delays in obtaining repair authorisation of necessary service, please contact us and we will secure action.

Your policy excess is normally paid by you to the repairer upon collection of the repaired vehicle.

If the damage is due to the negligence of an identifiable Third Party, your Insurer will normally endeavor to recover your excess.

Where a third party is involved, under no circumstances should any admission of liability be made.

 

 MOTOR VEHICLE - PERSONAL INJURY

In cases where Personal Injury is involved, a separate claim form must be submitted to the Motor Accident Compensation insurer. Appropriate claim forms will be supplied upon request.
No further actions direct with any Third Parties should be undertaken without instruction from Insurers.
A copy of the claim form should be lodged with this office for record purposes.  

 

 LIABILITY - PUBLIC (GENERAL) & PRODUCTS

In general terms no admission of liability should be made to any party in any form whatsoever. All correspondence, writs, summonses and demands should be sent to this office immediately upon receipt.  

 

 PROFESSIONAL RISKS - CLAIMS MADE POLICIES

The following policies are generally issued on a 'claims made contract' include:

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • Directors & Officers Liability Insurance
  • Management Liability Insurance
