• Insurance Claims Notification Requirements

      It is important that all incidents that may give rise to a claim are reported to our insurers Howdens as soon as possible after the event. This will enable Insurers to carry out investigations at an early stage whilst information relating to the claim remains fresh in the mind. This will also ensure that you are complying fully with your policy terms and conditions.

      Additionally you are also required to comply with the amendments to the Ministry of Justice procedures which came into effect on 31st July 2013. These require disclosure of insurance details within 24 hours of contact by Third Party solicitors following an injury where you may be liable. Failure to comply with the revised procedures will result in a sharp increase in costs.

      In order to achieve this, we ask that you notify Howdens immediately of any incident that involves:-

      • a fatal accident.
      • an injury involving either referral to or actual hospital treatment.
      • any allegations of libel/slander.
      • any allegations of Professional Negligence i.e. arising out of tuition, coaching or advice given.
      • any investigation under any child protection legislation.
      • any circumstance involving damage to third party property.

      If you have any queries with regard to your insurance do not hesitate to contact us.

      Kind Regards
