Oil Spill Insurance Claim

Oil spill on garden path

What to do if you have an oil spill or leak on your property.

Contact Insurance Claim Solutions, we will assess the damage and contact your insurance company.

  • if there’s a strong smell of oil in your home, ventilate the area by opening windows and doors
  • keep children and pets away from any spills
  • avoid getting oil on your skin and clothing
  • wash your hands and don’t smoke, eat or drink when or after you are in contact with the oil

If the oil contamination is caused by a leak rather than a spill

  • switch off your oil supply at the tank
  • if you can do so safely try to find out where the leak is coming from
  • put a bucket under dripping oil
  • use an absorbent material such as earth, sand, cat litter to stop the oil spreading especially if near a drain or open water source
  • Never use detergent and a hose to wash the oil away, you are only spreading the contamination and causing further damage

What damage can an oil leak do.

An oil leak or oil spill can cause a lot of damage, often much of it unseen and can even affect the structure of the house and the health of the occupants. Escaped oil can pollute soil, underground water and building structures. Fuel oil is also combustible and if not cleaned properly it can be a fire hazard.

Skin contact with oil can cause acute irritation and inhaling fumes over a prolonged period can cause many different health problems.

Quick intervention to repair any leaks and carry out a professional clean up are essential both to minimise and contain the contamination and to minimise costs. Insurance Claim Solutions have extensive experience in assessing potential damage caused by an oil leak or spill. We can help you assess and manage your insurance claim and get the right contractor to perform a thorough clean-up.

Two main reasons for oil contamination.

Oil spillage, when the tank is being filled or work being done near the storage tank results in the tank being damaged. Doing the “clean-up” immediately will minimise damage both to your property and the environment. Many things can be cleaned but soaked soil and brickwork may have to be disposed of professionally.

Oil seepage and long term leaks. Caused by slow leaks in tanks or pipework and fittings. These leaks can go unseen for a long time and may only be noticed because your fuel does not last as long as it used to or a smell of oil on a sunny day. These are harder to deal with as the oil can have soaked into the surrounding area and contaminated a lot of ground. If you boiler is in or near your house the leaking oil could have soaked into brickwork and foundations of the building. This can involve extensive and expensive remedial work.

Why should you use Insurance Claim Solutions to manage your oil spill claim?

Oil leak at boiler

  • we generally are able to negotiate a much higher insurance settlement that you could

The insurance company’s Claim Adjusters role is to minimise the Insurance Company losses, so they tend to skip over secondary damage unless it is uncovered and pointed out to them.

      Trevor (Insurance Claim Solutions) provided us with a... highly professional and friendly service throughout the claims process. He came highly recommended and we can see why. We had extensive damage caused due to a burst pipe in our boiler which occured only days before Christmas. Trevor responded to our urgent request to assess and submit a claim on our behalf. He took all the hassle and stress out of managing this claim ourselves. His expertise was invaluable in being able to identify all issues and to negotiate with our insurers to ensure all damages were accounted for. Thanks again more

      Trevor is an insurance claims expert and came highly... recommended. He didn't disappoint! After we had a fire at our premises we found ourselves to be under insured. We expected to have to pay for a considerable portion of the rebuild cost but Trevor managed to secure a settlement that covered the rebuild. Excellent work Trevor. Thank you!read more

      I contacted Trevor on behalf of an elderly family member... who had a leak resulting in water damage in his house. Trevor reassured me from the very first call that I was doing the right thing by using his service. He was extremely professional and very thorough in his assessment. We didn't have to fill out any hefty paper work or bounce back and forth with the insurance company. Trevor took care of all that. I couldn't believe how quickly it was processed and settled. Amazing work Trevor. We can't thank you enough for the time and effort that you put in. We can concentrate on the repairs now 👍read more

      Trevor Kelly was referred to me by our insurance broker... after complications arose with our claim for water damage to our home. Trevor was not only extremely thorough and experienced with his advice but was also helpful, kind and compassionate. He alleviated so much of the stress endured by the situation by handling absolutely everything for us. Without Trevor's expertise, our claim which was initially declined would never have been approved. His advise was fundamental to the success of our claim, which surpassed all our expectations financially. Thank you so much Trevor for all your wonderful work, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your service to anyone who might need more

      I could not recommend Trevor Kelly enough. I was so... stressed out trying to deal with an insurance claim for the first time. Upon recommendation, I contacted Trevor and it was the best decision ever. Thanks to his professionalism, his calming nature, his re-assuring words to me and also to his in depth knowledge of the business, I was able to leave all dealings with my insurance company to him knowing that I was in very capable and safe hands. Thank you again Trevor for looking after me so very more

      Thank you Trevor so much for all your help with my recent... insurance claim. Trevor looked after all paperwork and communication with my insurance company. The claim was processed very efficiently and was totally stress free for me, considering that we had a serious leak in the house. Trevor actually recommended a builder to complete the work and we are extremely satisfied with the job. Do not hesitate to contact Trevor if you find yourself in the need of accessing your insurance!

      Excellent service. Very difficult case arising due to water... egress from damaged pipe work causing significant subsidence. Insurers attempted to frustrate the claim, without Trevor's help we would never have been able to navigate the claims process successfully. We are forever grateful and would never attempt a home insurance claim again without engaging Trevor first. We cannot recommend his services strongly more

      Thanks a million @insurance_claim_solutions_ for looking... after my mam and dad insurance claim after a flood wrecked their bathroom and sitting room. Thank you Trevor for making sure she got fixed up even after the job was finished they would have had no idea how to claim and probably would have left it without claiming, and you took over everything for them. They now have a beautiful wet room which is a godsend to my elderly parents I would highly recommend you in the future and have passed your number on. Thanks again for making a huge difference to their lives greatly appreciated From Antoinetteread more
