The insurer and your Westralian Insurance Account Manager will advise you of the paperwork required to substantiate your claim. Below is a general guide of paperwork required; each policy and its requirements will differ –
- Complete a claim form, including police report numbers if possible;
- Provide copies of Proof of Ownership of items e.g. tax invoices, proof of purchase, receipts;
- Provide quotations for repairs or replacements;
- If it is a Workers Compensation claim, you will need to provide copies of medical certificates and invoices, claim forms etc.
Once you have compiled all information, you’ll need to return it to Westralian Insurance and we will forward to the insurance company and liaise with them on your behalf, to obtain a maximum settlement in a timely manner. We will also liaise with you should any further paperwork be required.
If your property is lost or stolen, vandalised or maliciously damaged, advise your nearest police station as soon as possible. Be sure to keep close by, the police report number they will issue, as well as any damaged property available should insurers wish to inspect it.
If you are reporting a car accident and completing paperwork, you will also be issued with a police report number which you will need to complete your insurance claim paperwork.
As each insurance claim is individual, we recommend you contact us at Westralian Insurance for advice and to answer any queries.
