WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED
Our approach is tailored to each business that we work with. Typical covers we look at for construction and demolition businesses include:
CYBER CASE STUDY
Miles Smith, now Specialist Risk Insurance Solutions, was asked by a large nationwide retailer to undertake a thorough review of its insurance provisions to highlight any potential gaps in cover.
"When large/complex claims occur, Specialist Risk are right alongside us. This was typified when a significant fire affected one of our sites several years ago. The business interruption claim alone totalled several million pounds but Miles Smith Insurance Solutions, now Specialist Risk Insurance Solutions settled the claim within a 2-month period, meaning the impact on our business was minimised and flexibility retained."
