Claims

The face of risk is constantly changing in the UK agricultural sector, with a diverse range of potential claims situations arising from their daily activities. Farmers are producing high-tech crops and biofuels, investing in tourism infrastructure and retail, and sending out driverless vehicles onto their land. All of these measures have required additional cover and claims support, specialist knowledge and a proactive approach to cost management.
