How can McCarthy Insurance Group help?

We can assist you if you need to make a claim or if a claim is not settled in your favour, we can help you to appeal the decision.

Before making a claim:

* Check the excess you have to pay yourself. You will not be able to claim for amounts less than the excess.
* If the claim is small, consider whether it is worth making a claim. If you make a claim, you may lose your no claims bonus

Claim Settlement Information

Insurers normally settle claims by cheque, payable to you.

Personal injury claims – what to do if you have an accident

In cases that involve another party, such as a traffic accident:

* Report the matter to the Gardaí immediately.
* Advise McCarthy Insurance Group straight away.

In the case of your claim going to court check if you have legal expenses cover on your policy so that you do not pay for services that you are already covered for.

Can my claim be refused?

Although we will often negotiate with your insurance company to settle your claim your claim can be refused for a reasons including:

* What you are claiming for is not covered by your policy
* One of the conditions in your policy is not met, for example, you have not reported an accident to the Gardaí
* Your insurer has evidence that you did not fill in your initial application form accurately or truthfully
