car park fire damage claim We have recently managed a business insurance claim involving extensive fire damage to an underground car park in the South of Dublin.

Garda investigation revealed that the fire was a result of malicious damage caused by a number of intruders, who entered the building tampering with the main gates, and set 2 cars on fire.

The management company in charge of the property contacted Insurance Claim Solutions on recommendation from another local management company, who used us to manage a similar insurance claim in the past.

We surveyed the site and found out that the fire had generated extensive heat and smoke causing thermal and smoke damage to  a number of surfaces.

The insulation on the underside of the roof had been burned and smoke damaged beyond repair, the electrical wiring and light fittings, fire alarm cabling and sensors and plumbing system had been fire damaged. Read more in the news

The entire car park was heavily contaminated with smoke and soot. Further investigation found that structural elements such as concrete columns, floor screed, steel beams and walkways were also damaged.  ICS Loss Assessor, Trevor Kelly, who is also a qualified Building Surveyor,  was able to assess not only the cosmetic damage to the building, but also the structural damage. He reported the claim to insurers via the client’s insurance broker and requested that a loss adjuster be appointed without a delay.

As the next step in our claim management process, he met with loss adjusters and their specialists a number times on site in order to point out the full extend of the damage and agree the full schedule of works.

After formulating and submitting the claim, backed by extensive documentation of the damage,  he entered into a number of rounds of negotiation which resulted in receiving the best possible settlement for our clients.

The claim was very technical in nature, so Trevor’s experience as a building surveyors was integral to the successful negotiation and settlement agreement. Our clients were delighted with the outcome. More information on the benefits of using a public loss assessor to assess your loss and manage your business insurance claim can be found in ICS Services page.

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!
