Claim Tips

  • Be pro-active and minimize the extent of any loss.
  • Do not admit liability for any accident without having discussed the claim with your broker.
  • When speaking to emergency personnel obtain names, phone numbers, report numbers and dates and times.
  • Note as many details as possible at the earliest opportunity while the events are fresh in your memory.
  • Where practical, take photo/video evidence of the accident scene.
