Claims made after strong winds

Have your say

AN ILKESTON insurer has said it expects claims to keep coming in for the next few weeks after severe winds caused damage to properties and business.

A spokesman for Coversure Ilkeston said: “Already there have been several claims due to the high winds.

“Many business premises have been damaged and there have been cases where this damage has caused injury to members of the general public as well as motoring claims where high sided vehicles have been blown over and damaged.”

“We expect more claims to come in over the next few days and weeks.

“Although the weather is unpredictable, there are some basic steps that can be taken to minimise the effect.”
