  • Stay safe on Halloween |
    after it brushed a candle in a pumpkin So there has been considerable publicity this year to try to prevent similar tragedies happening Fancy dress costumes are not subject to the same fire retardant rules as children s clothing as they are classed as toys Some suppliers have voluntarily agreed to upgrade theirs to these higher safety standards but there are still many out there which are highly flammable The fire and rescue services have been issuing lots of advice to parents including this checklist Check the labels on any fancy dress outfits you buy and see what fire resistance they offer If in doubt check with the customer services department or the store manager Do not let you child near any ignition sources sparklers can burn at up to 2000 degrees Celsius Replace candles in pumpkins with battery powered candles these are cheap they do not blow out and they are much safer Teach your child to STOP DROP AND ROLL in the event that their clothing does catch fire In an emergency cool any burns with large amounts of water and get urgent medical assistance Another bit of advice we ve seen is to ensure children wear ordinary clothes under their fancy dress which puts a barrier between the fancy dress and the skin So we hope your family has a great and safe Halloween Share this page This entry was posted in News Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1 Fire Articles 37 Flood Articles 42 Freezing Weather Articles 7 Home Insurance Articles 1 Home Insurance News 99 Insurance Articles 34 Landlords Articles 10 Loss Assessors 12 News 113 Other Residential Articles 3 Theft Articles 9

  • Animal dangers |
    the water was on a TV screen in the living room and this misjudged leap caused hundreds of pounds of damage Door bells can send some dogs wild including one from Carlisle who jumped up in excitement when the chimes went and leapt on to his owner s lap where there was a computer and the owner was in the middle of drinking a cup of tea A Belfast man annoyed his pet bearded dragon by cleaning his tank which resulted in a nasty bite He jumped backwards in pain into his TV set causing nearly 400 of damage But it s not just pet animals wild ones can be just as much trouble A Rochester man was cleaning his teeth when a wasp flew in through window He panicked and tried to shoo it away knocking over a glass which cracked the basin and led to a 1000 insurance claim A pigeon flew into a bathroom in Northampton catapulting a vase from the windowsill into the loo and cracking the bowl Two magpies were fighting in Kilmarnock and crashed through a conservatory roof causing significant damage and a very large payout And finally the sad tale of someone who literally cooked his goose An Enfield man attempted to barbecue an entire goose and we know how fatty they can be Rather than a crisp and delicious lunch the goose caught fire and melted the entire barbecue causing 1300 worth of damage I ll stick to sausages and ribs Share this page This entry was posted in Home Insurance News News and tagged accidental damage contents insurance home insurance household insurance insurance claim Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles

  • Selfie sticks and insurance |
    selfies And as for using selfie sticks well I m in total agreement with some of the venerable institutions around the world which have banned them Wimbledon the Palace of Versailles Wembley Stadium and even Arsenal and Manchester United the first and only time I ll agree with the last two So some recent news may help to dissuade happy snappers from using selfie sticks apparently insurers are starting to refuse to pay out for stolen mobile phones if they were grabbed from the end of a selfie stick This is based on the argument that owners didn t take reasonable care with them because they weren t within their reach when they were stolen The Financial Ombudsman has even stepped into this debate with a spokesman stating that there can be an issue if the gadget was on the end of a selfie stick when stolen this could be deemed as not taking reasonable care But it has also said that insurers should bring any relevant clauses to a customer s attention and be fair and reasonable when applying them You have been warned Share this page This entry was posted in Home Insurance News and tagged insurance insurance claim Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1 Fire Articles 37 Flood Articles 42 Freezing Weather Articles 7 Home Insurance Articles 1 Home Insurance News 99 Insurance Articles 34 Landlords Articles 10 Loss Assessors 12 News 113 Other Residential Articles 3 Theft Articles 9 Archive April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 Morgan Clark Fire and Flood Insurance Claims Management Residential Commercial Fire insurance claims Flood insurance claims Burst pipes insurance claims Other insurance claims Fire insurance claims

  • New law would speed up business insurance claims |
    good that the Government is proposing a law to clamp down on these unreasonable delays The Enterprise Bill which went through its first reading in the Commons last week will place a contractual requirement on insurers to pay claims to businesses within a reasonable time Insurers would have to pay damages to the policyholder if additional losses have occurred because of this unreasonable delay The Bill is now before the House of Lords and will receive its second reading in the Commons in October Comprising a wide range of measures to support small businesses the section on insurance aims to Introduce into every contract of insurance a requirement on the insurer to pay sums due within a reasonable time Ensure that the law incentivises insurers to pay within a reasonable time and to promote payments within a reasonable time Give policyholders a legal right to enforce prompt payment of insurance claims Provide for limited compensation to be payable by an insurer where a policyholder suffers additional loss because of the insurer s unreasonable delay in payment Making a commercial insurance claim is complicated enough without unreasonable delays making it even worse So we support anything which can help this process but we would always advise firms to get expert help with their claim from a loss assessor This can make all the difference to whether or not they receive their full entitlement and ensure that their business survives Share this page This entry was posted in Business Insurance News and tagged business insurance business interruption commercial insurance insurance claim Insurance law Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1 Fire Articles 37 Flood Articles 42 Freezing Weather Articles 7 Home

  • Insurance tax premium rise: a word of warning |
    contents policy which may be enough for some consumers to downgrade their policies or cut cover altogether One study by Consumer Intelligence showed that over one quarter 27 per cent would cancel policies or reduce cover This was supported by a study of 1000 consumers undertaken by UNA which reported that 25 per cent of people living in London are now buying less protection despite the fact that the rise won t take place until November But some good news has come from another survey by Consumer Intelligence This showed that more than half of consumers who phone their insurer to query their renewal quote were then offered a cheaper deal Four in 10 made a saving of more than a tenth while the rest achieved a more modest saving So it shows it s worth haggling but as always with the same caveat as we always give make sure the cover you re buying gives you the protection you expect if you have to make a claim If any deal you re offered changes your cover then you need to fully understand the implications of this But some cover is better than none so our advice on the imminent hike in IPT is to consider the impact of not having insurance if something were to happen Ask yourself if paying an extra tenner a year would actually be money well spent for the peace of mind of knowing you ve got protection Share this page This entry was posted in Home Insurance News and tagged buildings insurance contents insurance home buildings insurance home insurance household insurance insurance insurance claim under insurance Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1
