Claims FAQ

We will always take time to answer your claims questions. The following information is provided as a general resource for our insured clients. For answers to questions about a specific loss, talk to your claim adjuster or broker, who could more thoroughly explain your insurance coverage, processes and claims options through your insurance as well as answer any other questions you may have.

Information You Will Need.

See the list below for key information you will need to file your claim. We understand you may not have all of this information immediately available. When you provide your First Notice of Loss, please provide as much detail as possible. Once further details of the loss or claim are known, you can simply contact your claim professional. You can also download our Accident Kit.

Information You Will Need
Maintain key claims details.

To stay organized, we recommend you maintain a file and keep the file with you regarding your insurance claim that includes the following:

  • Your business name as it appears on the policy
  • Policy number
  • Claim number
  • Claim adjuster name, mailing address, phone number and title
  • Estimates, correspondence and notes of phone conversations regarding the claims settlement

Whenever you talk to your claims adjuster, your documentation will help ensure the claim is processed in a timely, accurate manner.

What if I have a question about my claim?

If you have not filed a claim, and have general questions, please contact your broker/agent or contact us at (844) 362-4467.

If you have a question regarding your medical bill payment for your Workers’ Compensation claim, please contact your claims adjuster for further assistance.

What documents do I need to submit my claim?

You may be requested to provide the following documents including but not limited to photographs, police or fire reports, incident reports, estimates, bills of lading, medical bills, contracts or lawsuits.  Your claims adjuster will instruct you how to provide the documentation.

What is the process when I have an accident?

Do not discuss liability with other parties who may be at fault.  Only discuss the accident with the authorities or your company. Instead, gather information about who was involved (name, address, phone numbers, etc.), and promptly report your claim to us.
