Other Insurance Considerations

Claims Notification Requirements:

The Insurers shall be given immediate written notice with full particulars of any claims or circumstances which may give rise to a claim.

Every letter, claim, writ, summons and process in connection with such circumstances shall be forwarded to the Insurers immediately on receipt.

Written notice shall also be given by the Insured to the Insurers immediately the Insured shall have knowledge of any prosecution, inquest or inquiry in connection with any circumstances which may give rise to liability under this Policy.

The Woolf Reforms:

Every incident, particularly those involving personal injury, must be reported immediately it happens, as strict time limits are now in place for the handling of claims.
