NSW and QLD floods

Severe storms have affected parts of NSW and SE QLD, causing damage to vehicles,
homes and businesses. 
Logan Insurance Brokers is here to assist our clients with any
claims related matters arising from the disaster.

First and foremost we hope that you are all safe and well and that your properties and businesses remain unaffected. The significant damage to public property – particularly vital utilities and roadways, is likely to slow down the recovery process adding to the impact of this disaster. 

What to do if you are impacted by the storms? As you can imagine, resources are going to be strained and accessing trades quickly may be difficult. If you are experiencing any damage from the storms do whatever you can to make safe (without compromising your own safety of course). Take photos and video of any damage and any entry points of water if you can see it. Notify us when you can – the earlier the better, but your claim will not be compromised if you can’t get to this for a few days.

If you require temporary accommodation please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can check to see if you have cover under your insurance policy.  Many insurers are establishing specialised assistance in this area and we can co-ordinate this with them.

The full scale of this disaster is not yet known, but we expect it to have far reaching effects on our clients. We are here to help alleviate any stress or uncertainty you may be experiencing.

Do not be put off by “flood” exclusions in your policies. In insurance terms, flood refers to “the covering of normally dry land by water that has escaped or been released from the normal confines of any lake, or any river, creek or other natural watercourse”.  This means that if water is entering your building from overflowing sewage or drains, for instance, this is not “flooding” from an insurance perspective.
Even if your home or business is in the flood zones, there are other possible things that can trigger a claim.For instance, outages of bridges and road closures may trigger Prevention of Access claims for business interruption. Power outages may also be covered under some policies.

For those of you in flood affected areas, if you are experiencing or have experienced any water damage from storm water prior to the arrival of the floodwater, make sure you photo-document it as accurately as possible, it and send to us for assessment as this may be enough to trigger a claim.
In this regard, being able to show the damage occurred from the storm water prior to the flooding is vitally important in getting a claim paid.

Insurers have placed disaster response specialists on standby to move into affected communities and assist customers with claims as soon as it is safe to do so.

5. Major damage – notify us as soon as possible as insurer will likely appoint an assessor.
