Damage to household and commercial buildings, and their contents, by impact from vehicles , aircraft, and animals.
The most common impact damage incident involves destruction to domestic or commercial buildings, including houses and businesses such as factories warehouses offices or their contents by a third party or the insureds own vehicle. Impact damage caused by forklift trucks within and around commercial premises is also not uncommon.
Impact damage insurance claims to buildings can range from superficial cracking to complete or partial demolition of the structure. Dependent on the circumstances a recovery of the ultimate outlay can be purued against responsible third parties. Impact damage from a forklift truck inside a building can be widespread, and if racking and shelving containing valuable stock is demolished or disturbed the resultant insurance claim can be extensive.

Your insurers are likely to appoint a loss adjuster or claims handler to deal with your claim but this is to protect their own interests.These representative's operate under heavy workloads and your claim cannot be given the focus it deserves. Adjusters and Insurance Claims Inspectors do not prepare your claim, they adjust the claim you submit. Other expenses may be recoverable of which you are unaware. If you prematurely agree a claim with insurers it may be too late for them to subsequently reconsider additional items.
