Construction PI Policy highlights 

Full civil liability ‘all risk’ cover

If a claim isn’t specifically excluded, it’s included. Policies are designed to catch all. 

Enhanced protection above regulatory requirements

Insurance is about defending your business, not box ticking. 

Bespoke wordings, no tripwires to fall foul of

Standard insurance wordings impose very strict conditions and warranties – ours are much more user-friendly, every clause is set up to help you.  

 

Service highlights

Your claim will be handled by a sector specialist

Many of our competitors outsource their claims function – we never will. 

Here are some examples of claims support we offer clients, every day: 

1. Guidance on the notifying process and helping prepare the notification to insurers
2. Assisting draft responses to claimants
3. Helping you choose a lawyer
4. Overseeing legal cost management
5. Ensure that insurers' reserving policies benefit you
6. Attending mediations to defend our clients’ interests
7. Challenge insurers’ coverage position statements (when needed, our skill in policy design makes this increasingly rare)
8. Expediting your payouts
