Before a claim is made
We invest time to get to know our customers and what is important to them. Then we utilise joined-up thinking, involving everyone from underwriters and claims handlers to risk managers to ensure we are fully prepared.
Before an incident occurs, we’ll meet to gather information and intelligence. This allows us to run scenario tests on how we’ll respond and work in collaboration. Regular claims relationship health checks ensure that we stay on track together.
When a claim is made
Our Claims teams are focused on settling claims as quickly and as fairly as possible. A nominated and experienced claims handler will take clear ownership of each claim from start to finish with rapid referral to the right experts and specialists from our in-house teams and extensive supplier network partners.
We operate to agreed service standards but with a tailored approach to each claim to meet the customer’s needs.
After a claim is made
Discussions take place on how to avoid recurrence and agree how we can use the lessons learned from the claim to improve risk management and avoid future incidents.
Access is given to a suite of Management Information to help show the profile of claims across the business. We analyse claims history to identify trends and share this information with you.
