How to make a claim
At Hiscox we always try to go the extra mile to provide a speedy, efficient, courteous and fair handling of your client’s claim to minimise the disruption to their business.
We know how frustrating it can be to have to repeat yourself to different people every time you call, so if the claim cannot be settled immediately, you will be allocated a dedicated Claims Underwriter who will take you through the claims process and handle the claim to conclusion.
If you are notified of a loss and need to contact us to register a commercial public liability or employers’ liability claim on behalf of your client, please contact us immediately on one of the following claims lines:
0845 213 8899 (option 2)
Our UK based Claims Underwriters are available from 9:00- 17:30, Monday to Friday.
Alternatively, you can notify the claim in writing by fax on 020 7448 6923, by e-mail to email@example.com or by post to:
PO Box 420
If a claim has already been reported to us please contact the relevant Hiscox Claims Underwriter directly or call the phone number quoted above giving our claim reference, or the policy number.
For advice on employment, prosecutions, health and safety, sex discrimination, tax and European law, please contact DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited on 0870 050 3030. Please note that DAS will need to discuss the claim directly with the client.
For all claims it would be helpful if you could provide the Hiscox policy number and full details of the claim, including the date, amount and circumstances.
What you need to make a claim
The more information that we receive at the point that the claim is notified to us, the better placed we are to determine the right next step for the claim and defend it where appropriate. It is very important that your client does not accept any responsibility for damage or loss caused to a third party, and all correspondence received from the third party or anyone acting on their behalf (e.g. insurers, solicitors or claims management firms) is passed to us immediately and not responded to.
Please ensure that you provide us with full details of the incident, including what happened, when, where and how, along with any supporting documentation that your client may have. If you have any feedback on this broker centre claims section please email firstname.lastname@example.org
