Fire Claims

When your property is damaged by fire and smoke, it can have a disastrous effect. ICS are aware of the problems that a fire damage claim can present. Apart from the physical and emotional distress, fire and smoke can cause financial damage far beyond the immediate visual inspection.

This means that submitting an insurance claim can be a complex and daunting prospect. In order to ensure you receive your full entitlement, it is important to make sure your claim covers the full financial implications of the incident.

Why should you ask for help with a fire claim?

It is at the early stages of the fire claim that professional representation can help remove the additional burden placed upon you by your insurance company. When you are submitting a claim against fire and smoke damage, it is your responsibility to assess the initial cost of the incident and manage the claim through to completion. However, most of us do not have the time or the expertise to handle a fire claim. If your insurance company has already appointed a loss adjuster and forensic scientist, then the task can seem overwhelming.

The appointed loss adjuster does not help prepare your fire claim. Loss adjusters wait until you present the fire claim to explain your full entitlement. This can mean your initial claim is frail and possibly prejudices your settlement.

Loss Assessors work differently. We work with you before you file a claim. This means that you have an experienced consultant to help you assess the true damage to your property and ensure that your claim is managed properly from the outset.
