Insurance Claim Form
Please think carefully before making a claim. Any compensation is paid from public money and we must protect the public funds we handle. The cost of investigating unsuccessful or fraudulent claims diverts money away from important front line services.
Claims made against the council are not automatically paid; all claims received are investigated. Unfortunately incidents do occur, however, very few are actually attributable to negligence on the part of the Council. The majority of claims brought against Redcar & Cleveland Council are successfully defended.
You should be aware that we check all claims to prevent fraud and your details may be shared with other organisations to carry out further checks.
Should you wish to make a claim against the Council in respect of loss of or damage to personal property, please click on the Insurance Claim Form link, complete the form and return to the address below.
