PROPERTY & CONSTRUCTION
One of our more diverse contracting clients also operate a Plant Hire business.
We were made aware of damage to two plant items whilst out on hire. The plant should have been subject to a Hire Agreement making the hirer responsible for loss or damage. Unfortunately, in this case, the plant had been mistakenly released without this agreement having been signed.
Whilst it was a policy condition that a Hire Agreement would be in place for every hire, we presented the full facts to the insurers and successfully negotiation settlement of the claim within the terms of the policy.
In addition, we were able to successfully pursue the hirer for reimbursement of our clients uninsured losses.
The total cost of the claim was almost £100,000.
