How do my clients make a claim?

Your clients simply have to call the number provided in their policy document, or they can download a claims form. We will assess your client’s claim and review their prospects of success.

We will work with your clients from start to finish to ensure they receive all the support they need. In our experience the majority of cases do not end up in court, but if an agreement can’t be reached, we will assign a lawyer to manage the case.
