Risk Management

Managing Risks of Storms

Are you ready to face another season of storms and cyclones?

With reports that Weather related events will be even more intense  in the future, us Risk Takers need to adapt and prepare so that the impact is reduced and our family and community is protected.

Insurance is fine when it comes to compensating you financially, but there are a lot of unpaid hours in preparing, submitting and following up on claims. There are many Flood victims who did not use an Insurance Broker still battling insurers to pay claims here in Queensland. Further, if the cost of a Claim is reduced by better prevention methods, then there is less of a need for Insurers to increase premiums.

Prevention is better than cure. Click here for a web site with useful tips. 

Most of this is common sense. There is also the forgotten issue of legal liability, that is the duty of care you owe to your neighbours. I have seen plastic chairs fly off balconies of multi-storey apartment blocks, branches damaging neighbouring properties and water damage from neighbour's blocked drains or poorly designed run-off areas.

We all have a duty to not just ourselves, but also our neighbours. So be Storm ready this season.
