What you need to do
Your basic responsibilities when a claim arises are:
– To report the claim to us or your insurer immediately
– Never admit liability at the scene of an accident
– To take all reasonable steps to minimise the loss
– To advise the authorities, where appropriate
– To act at all times in good faith
– To co-operate with us and/or your insurer in any investigation including the supply of supporting evidence
Where damage to another person or their property is concerned, such as with a motor accident, do not admit liability to anyone and refer any correspondence received direct to us and unanswered.
When loss or damage occurs, it is useful to make a written note of the basic facts, such as the time of discovery or when the incident occurred. It is best to do this as soon as you can while fresh in your memory.
