Steve Lazarus - The Claims Desk (Your contact for all general and commercial claims)
If you have suffered damage to your home or business, caused by fire, theft, flood or other mishap, you will probably need to make an insurance claim. You may not need to appoint your own Loss Assessor, but before you speak to Insurers, or sign any forms you must get the best advice possible. Insurers don’t like paying claims! Don’t fight insurers with one arm tied behind your back. Get informed, be empowered.
Before you need to claim we recommend you speak to our very own Loss Assessor associate. Steve is authorised and regulated by the FCA.
