Water Damage Claims

The effects of water damage can be devastating and detrimental to your livelihood, so it is important that your flood damage insurance claim be managed professionally and handled with your best interest in mind. Bell Green can manage this claim on your behalf, identifying and documenting the damage caused and presenting it to your insurance company.

Water damage may come in many forms, including damage caused by floodwater or a burst pipe. In addition to the damage that is immediately visible, water can be responsible for further electrical damage; damage to your carpets or flooring; damage to your wall paper and plaster; or damage to your personal possessions. Our team of professionals will help identify any water damage that goes beyond the superficial; water damage that may affect the structure or fabric of your property. If these problems are not identified during the assessment process, your claim entitlement could be under paid, leaving you with costly repairs in the future and potential risks to your health and safety.

Floodwater causing damage to your property may be contaminated, which will require specialist attention. Thorough cleaning and drying is essential and should be carried out before any remedial repairs begin to take place, ensuring that any long-term damage is identified and repaired correctly. Insurance companies often overlook serious damage and long-term risks during the critical assessment stage, which can be detrimental to your health and leave you out of pocket in the future.

Bell Green will ensure that your water damage claim is managed professionally and safely. We will assess the damage and identify potential problems that could arise as a result of the flood damage, for instance damage to the fabric or structure of your property. We will document all aspects of the damage, including any possessions or property affected by the flood water and process your claim, negotiating the best settlement with your insurance company and maximising the terms of your insurance policy.

As part of your flood damage claim Bell Green can also help you organise emergency repairs and implement safety measures, such as the boarding up of windows and entrances, and emergency electrical work. We can also help you source alternative accommodation and secure an interim payment from your insurance company to cover the cost of a hotel or similar.
