Claim Reporting

One of the most important steps you can take to manage your claims effectively is to notify the insurance carrier promptly. Of course, when an event occurs, it is essential to ensure that injured parties receive the proper medical treatment, and if the loss is severe, the scene is preserved. After that, it is also critically important to respond with timely claim reporting so the carrier can begin their investigation and determine compensability. If you have questions on how or when to report a claim, please reach out to your Claim Consultant or call our 24/7 Emergency Claim Hotline at (877) 861-3220.
