  • 1. How to win your insurance claim Get the best possible insurance claim When the worst happens.   We are here to help.   Expect more and get it. Local: 0845 686 0845           www.aka‐assistedclaims.co.uk
  • 2. How to win your insurance claim Get the best possible insurance claim These days we know that insurance companies aren't so happy to pay out on  your  claims, so you need to make sure that before you put in a claim, you dot the I's and  cross the T's. Here is a list of things that you should consider when  putting in your insurance claim. 1. Check your insurance policy You need to make sure that you are covered for the claim  that you are about to make.  Check the fine print and then  check it again.  You will find that there are clauses and  loopholes that will stop them from paying out, so make  sure that you are covered before going through the  rigmarole of claiming only to be told, that you don't have  a case. Local: 0845 686 0845           www.aka‐assistedclaims.co.uk
  • 3. 2. Stick to the rules The last thing your insurance company wants is for  you to submit your claim in your way.  If they want  you to ring to start the ball rolling on the claim, then  ring them.  If they want you to fill in a 10 page  document, then fill in the 10 page document.  Start  the process off in the right way and they are more  likely to listen to your problem. 3. Don't bend the truth Insurance companies know when you are lying ‐ it is  their job to spot and so are extremely vigilant.  Even  what you see as a simple exaggeration, can land you  in hot water, so don't be tempted to lie by adding  your computer to the list.  Even if just a small part of  the claim is false, then the whole claims can be  rejected. Local: 0845 686 0845           www.aka‐assistedclaims.co.uk
  • 4. 4. Information overload Provide as much information as possible to ensure  that your claim is taken seriously.  Insurers like to  have as much information as possible, mainly  because they are looking for reasons to reject the  claim, so be precise and helpful. 5. Keep in touch Keep in touch with your insurance company, as they  will be doing all that they can to drag their feet as  delaying payments, boosts their profits.  With this in  mind, make sure that you are chasing your insurer  whenever you feel that they are stalling. Local: 0845 686 0845           www.aka‐assistedclaims.co.uk
  • 5. 6. Money for nothing Don't expect to make money on your claim.  The  insurance payout should put you back in the same  position that you were in prior to the burglary, fire or  flood.  It is worth remembering that you will have an  excess to pay and therefore could in fact work out  worse off. 7. Learn to complain If you are not happy, then complain. But there is an  art to it and you should ask for a copy for their  complaints  procedure.  Follow this as the guild lines  have set out and mention that you intend to go to  the FOS ‐ Financial Ombudsman Service. Local: 0845 686 0845           www.aka‐assistedclaims.co.uk
  • 6. 8. Get a professional in Before you get to number 7, and if you are struggling  or the thought of dealing with your insurance  company if making you feel as sick as the day the  disaster struck, then you should talk to a  professional.  Loss Assessors work for you, only you,  and help to expedite your claim.  An insurance  company will employ a loss adjuster, so why  shouldn't you have a professional on your side as  well. It is often advantageous to employ a loss assessor if  your claim is significantly large.  A loss assessor will  take a small percentage of the pay out, so it is at  their benefit to get you the best possible settlement  and they will also take the pressure off you in making  the claim.
