What is a Claim

If you find yourself in a situation where you have been impacted by damage, suffered from a loss, or sustained an injury you may be entitled to make an insurance claim. Depending on the type of insurance policy, you may be provided compensation to recover for losses, damages or injuries. However, you need to be careful as your policy may also have exclusions that prevent you from claiming.

Preparing for a Claim

Before contacting your broker, make sure you are prepared for questions that they may ask you. This will help your broker be able to contact insurers and lodge your claim faster. You can get yourself ready by:

  • Preparing all of the details for the incident including: date, time, location, what happened, who was present, photographs and notes
  • Check your policy premiums are valid
  • Have a list of questions to ask your broker

If you are unsure, speak to your broker as they may be able to provide answers.

Lodging the claim

Once your insurance broker has received the relevant information and has reviewed your policy, they will lodge the claim with the insurance company. If it is a larger, urgent or complicated claim your broker will arrange a visit to discuss the matter in more details.

Timeframes for reviewing the claim may vary and this depends on several factors. Our brokers do not control the insurers timeframes, however they do communicate with them for frequent updates so that can advise you of your claims progress.

Outcome Notification

Once the insurance company has determined their assessment, your broker will contact you to notify you of the outcome. Your broker will provide further information during this stage, however because of the unique nature of each claim, claim outcomes may vary.
