Flood Damage Insurance Claims

We specialise in insurance claims arising from Flood Damage

Cork was extensively flooded in 2005 and we dealt with a significant number of claims in the Cork City area. Without exception, these were dealt with to the Client’s satisfaction and in all these cases we presented and negotiated the claims for structural damage to completion.

There was extensive damage in Cork City and the towns of Bandon, Clonakilty and Skibbereen in November 2009. This office handled numerous claims involving dwellings and commercial premises. The damage was extensive and indeed devastating for the people concerned. Due to the volume of claims huge delays were experienced but we pulled out all the stops to ensure that our Clients got the best possible settlements and as quickly as possible.

A case is being considered against the ESB in terms of release of water from Inniscarra dam and we believe this will be held in the Commercial Court. This is clearly of interest to Insurers and Policyholders in the context of recovery of “insured” and “uninsured” losses.



“During our insurance claim process arising from the Cork Flood of November 2009 we found it reassuring to be dealing with the professionals at Property Assess.  It removed a lot of the stress associated with the claim process and allowed us focus on restoring our business.  We found Alan to be sensible and flexible in his dealings with us. Alan is well respected among his peers and this facilitated the quick resolution of our claim”

“We suffered extensive damage during the flooding in Cork City centre in October 2004. We engaged Alan FitzGerald to present and negotiate our claim for damage and business interruption. The service provided was first class and Alan’s involvement meant that we were able to get on with the day to day core activities of our business. The claim was settled speedily and efficiently and at a level that was completely acceptable to us”.

“We suffered extensive flood damage and engaged Alan to present and negotiate our material damage and business interruption claim. This allowed us to concentrate on returning the restaurant to its pre-incident situation. We were delighted with the level of service and professionalism provided and we would have no hesitation in recommending Alan and his firm”.
