Oil Claims

oil insurance claimOil Insurance claims are probably the most complex of all types of claims to process, prior to 2015 insurers were allowed to appoint oil remediation experts on your behalf and pay them directly. As per the central bank’s decision to not allow them hold this control over your oil insurance claim, this is no longer permissible.

If you notice a smell of oil in your house, contact us immediately as we will process your oil claim from start to finish therefore removing the stress of the situation from you and getting you a 30% better settlement net of our fees.

Case Study: Oil Insurance Claim

We were appointed by a B&B owner following a large spill of oil which occurred due to a contractor drilling a pipe which subsequently meant over 1,000 litres of oil flowed under the house. Insurers initially offered our client €50,000.00 as a “walk away deal” prior to our appointment. Upon contacting our office, our client subsequently realised that this was a derisory settlement offer and then appointed us to act on his behalf. Insurers then removed this claim from their own “In-House” team and subsequently appointed loss adjusters to act in their interests. After several meetings with the loss adjusters an award of over €300,000 was made. The best part was that our fees were paid due to the loss being third party. This was an exceptional award and it proves our statement of “Don’t Settle for Less”
