chip pan fire claim - kitchen destroyed by fire Fire damage to ceiling and kitchen units caused by chip pan fireChip Pan Fire | Insurance Claim Solutions has recently been called in to assist an elderly Dublin couple with their chip pan fire claim.

A chip pan left unattended for a few minutes by  the lady who went to check on her grandkids, burst into flames causing extensive damage to the kitchen.  Other parts of the house were also affected as heavy smoke from burning oil and plastic spread quickly throughout the house.

Trevor Kelly, the ICS Loss Assessor, who assisted the couple with their claim, not only helped them with assessing the fire damage, filing the insurance claim and negotiating the settlement, but also arranged through the local estate agent, a short term lease so the elderly couple had somewhere to live while repairs to their home were carried out.

To ensure that the couple got a full compensation for their loss, he also engaged a specialist fire & smoke damage company to assess suspected smoke damage. The assessment which was carried out covered not only the fixtures and fittings in the kitchen, but also furnishing and clothes in other rooms in the house.

Chip Pan Fire – Case Resolution

Restored kitchen after insurance claim payoutnew kitchen floor after fire damageICS Loss Assessor negotiated hard to achieve a full compensation for the damage. As a result the insurance company paid for all the damages and the couple were able to return to a home made as good as new.

The kitchen was repainted and redone and the compensation covered the cost of a brand-new, fitted kitchen and kitchen appliances.

If you would like our Loss Assessor to help you with your insurance claim, call Trevor on 086 357 1713.


A word of warning – Never leave a chip pan on a stove unattended

Hot oil can catch fire in a flash and within seconds your whole house can become ablaze. Hot oil is difficult to put out. Never use water or wet towels to contain the blaze. See this short informative Chip Pan Fire video produced by a fire brigade and stay safe.

From my first phone conversation with Trevor I felt very confident that I had chosen the right person to help us negotiate through the minefield that is making a claim through your home insurer. Trevor's colleague Craig visited our home and was very sympathetic to our situation after a burst mains pipe. He explained everything he was doing and then dealt with the loss adjustor from our insurance company reducing our stress. We were kept informed during the entire process and even though we were dealt a bit of a curve ball, Trevor negotiated the best result for us and we can't reccomend ICS enough. It was the best decision we could make. As an add-on we would urge anybody reading this review to look at and review your home insurance and protect yourself against underinsurance. Thank you Trevor & Craig

I can’t recommend Trevor highly enough. After a house fire in Jan 2022, we had no idea what to do next. Thankfully, Trevor was recommended to us, and despite it being a bank holiday, he called to the house and provided all the reassurance we needed at a difficult time. Trevor is exceptionally professional, took care of all the paperwork, navigated through the tricky process with the Insurance company and kept us updated every step of the way. 5* service.

Trevor came in after we'd already started the claim and realised it was a much bigger issue than we'd originally thought. He stepped in seamlessly and quickly and took over everything, which made our lives far easier. He kept open communication every step of the way and ensured that the whole process went smoothly for us. Would absolutely recommend Insurance claim solutions to anyone.

It was such a relief to hand over all details of the insurance claim to Trevor when I had a recent mains leak in my house. He more than lived up to the recommendations I had received about his work, efficient, professional, inspiring confidence that all was being dealt with correctly. Within a remarkably short time he had dealt with all details of claim and I’m very happy with what he achieved for me in terms of a settlement. Can highly recommend him!
