We received the following today from an insurance company regarding the information they will gather when processing a claim:
‘Regards the obtaining of photos from Facebook, insurers (and Loss Adjusters) will use every available source in helping them determine liability in respect of a claim submitted. This is not to become common place, but has been common place and standard practice for some time.’
We would strongly advise all our clients to make sure your Facebook profiles are private or to be careful about the information you share about your horse online.
Insurance companies will access your Facebook information when assessing your claim, and information you share on Facebook will be considered when they are dealing with a claim.
Please share this message but be careful of what else you are sharing!
I’ve had my girl for 13 years, and the vets at Moorhouse have always been great with her. She’s had a rough time these past 2 years and the Vets have always been fantastic and helped her to come through it.
They’ve all tried so hard this year to keep her happy and pain free, but when the time came to call it a day they were so supportive.
They came out repeatedly to make her comfortable so she could spend a couple of days chilling in the field with her mates, and I could have time to come to terms with it. When it came to it they gave her such a peaceful and dignified end – I couldn’t have asked for a better end for her.
Huge thanks in particular to Ann for trying so hard with her this year, and to Lara who has been so wonderful and supportive for us both
