A large amount of our business comes from private property claims. Niall oversees all these types of claims. Due to his experience in the construction industry, he will seek to achieve his “pound of flesh” from the insurance claim, where you ultimately become the beneficiary.
The main types of claims we process are
Typically we achieve a 30% better settlement offer net of our fee for you when making a claim. As property is a complex area, it is best to seek independent advice as there may be items of scope that you are entitled to claim for that insurers won’t inform you of. While insurers Loss Adjusters claim to act independently on your behalf, what they neglect to say is that their fee is paid by the insurance company.
As the old saying goes “he who pays the piper, plays the tune”.
A client contacted us regarding a property claim for their commercial premises which had incurred numerous foul waters within the building. We treated the matter as urgent as there was an occupied tenant within the building and they has to act promptly to protect their position accordingly. We notified insurers immediately and had insurers loss adjusters appointed thereafter. We conducted a joint inspection of the property and updated our client accordingly. Their tenants were of the opinion that they couldn’t reopen the premises until all the works had been completed however we were concerned for our clients and proposed that they take all evasive actions and mitigate their tenants loss correctly. This was completed with our expertise, we then subsequently settled the claim for €55,000. Our client was of the opinion that we achieved a €15,000 better award than they would have gotten themselves notwithstanding the benefits of the advices we provided to prevent any subsequent third party claim from their insurers in relation to their tenants loss.
