Professional Indemnity Claims

Why is a strong claims team so important?

An insurance broker should not only be measured on their ability to secure a competitive premium and the right level of cover, but their capacity to work effectively on your behalf in the event of a claim.

Our 30 strong claims handling team is a core component of our service offering. We manage all stages of the claim from providing guidance on when to notify to participating in mediations. The overarching objective of our claims team is to ensure that any claims are resolved swiftly, sensitively and commercially with minimum disruption to your business.

A commercial, relationship driven approach

It is not just the size of our claims team that sets us apart from other insurance brokers; it is our approach and expertise which combine to ensure you are fully supported throughout the life-cycle of a claim. Our claims consultants have a proven record of resolving large and technically complex claims for a diverse range of clients operating from locations around the world.

We oversee and co-ordinate insurers, loss adjusters and/or solicitors throughout the claims process. We will work closely with them to ensure that wherever possible your commercial interests are upheld, and reducing the pressure that a claim places on you and your colleagues.

 

Over £500m of paid Professional Indemnity claims handled since 2008 – a proven track record you can trust.

In the 10+ years that we have been using the Howden claims service, we have found the team to be responsive, insightful, discreet and well connected. As an expanding international business with an insurance programme placed into a foreign jurisdiction we need a local insurance partner who we can trust to represent us as if we were a local customer. The Howden claims team gives us that vital representation.

Three things distinguish the Howden Professional Indemnity claims handling team from the competition; firstly their knowledge – these are genuine specialists with a complete understanding of the challenges facing their clients and the environment in which they operate. Secondly, their skill – in dealing with difficult situations whether it be in relation to coverage or otherwise, they know their business and the market respects them for that. The third is perhaps the most significant – they care about protecting their insureds’ interests and getting the best results out of a claim.
