Loss Assist Business

Helping your customer’s business survive following a large loss.

Expert help during complex commercial claims

Dealing with a large loss following a major incident such as a fire or flood can be a stressful and costly time for any business owner.

Making a claim for a significant loss is often a complicated and time-consuming process. Should the worse happen, your clients could need specialist claims support to help them get their business back to normal as quickly as possible.

Loss Assist Business will pay for a dedicated loss adjuster to support your clients through this difficult time, preparing the claim and negotiating on your client’s behalf to make sure that any insured losses are paid fairly and on time.

What the policy provides

  • Up to £100,000 in fees for a loss adjuster
  • A visit from a dedicated professional within 24 hours of claim notification
  • Preparation, submission and negotiation of your client’s claim
  • Cover for the cost of experts such as engineers, architects, surveyors or contractors where required to prepare the claim

What we can’t cover

There are some things that we don’t cover. Our policy wording has a full list of exclusions but here are a few examples:

  • Costs and expenses incurred without our prior approval.
  • Costs associated with independent valuations.
