Gallagher Heath has agreed to white-label Lorega’s range of Loss Recovery Insurance products and launch Gallagher Heath Assist.
Aimed at its corporate clients, in the event of a loss Gallagher Heath Assist will pay for the unlimited support of an independent expert Chartered Loss Adjuster to fast-track the preparation, negotiation and settlement of material damage and business interruption claims. This high level of service proved to be particularly helpful recently, for Lorega policyholders deluged by flood water.
In addition, Gallagher Heath SME clients with an underlying insurance premium of below £2,500 will be offered Lorega 10, a lower cost product offering up to 10 hours of expert advice in the event of a claim.
Industry estimates indicate that many companies suffering a major insurance loss never recover, clearly highlighting the need for an independent expert, to help the policyholder through, what is for many, a business critical time.
Mark Williams, Regional Managing Director for Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester Retail offices of Gallagher Heath said: “When claims arise it is essential that our clients receive the expert support they need to expedite their claims and get their businesses back to normal as soon as possible. Lorega has a well-earned reputation for quickly delivering claims excellence on the ground, where it counts, and we are delighted to offer Gallaher Heath Assist, based on their expertise, to our clients”
Neill Johnstone, Managing Director of Lorega said: “The recent bad weather has shown that nature can be as damaging to a business as fire or theft but, whatever the cause, our national team of independent Chartered Loss Adjusters will be on hand to make a real difference by supporting the client and settling the claim as quickly as possible.”
Johnstone continued: “Unfortunately, in these tough economic times it is imperative that claims are pro-actively managed to avoid severe financial issues that could ultimately lead to closure of the business. We are therefore delighted that Gallagher Heath has selected Lorega as the provider of its new assistance services as together we can successfully support affected policyholders and keep their businesses trading.”
