A glut of capacity in the U.S. marine insurance market has created one of the softest markets in recent history for operators on the American waterways. Domestic insurers have been forced to underwrite policies at aggressively priced rates in order to hold onto existing business and attract new policyholders.
In the event of a claim, time is of the essence and the Gallagher Marine Claims Team can provide a rapid response service that is, first and foremost, focused on protecting the interests of our clients. Our claims teams are not separate functions of our business, but together a closely aligned and valued part of the broader offering. Claims team members are involved in the placing process, just as placing brokers are involved in claims recovery efforts. This ensures continuity and consistency of approach; it is the foundation upon which our solutions are constructed and affected. See attached case study for an example of how our claims team helped a client.

While working to clear out a pumped-out riverbed for a construction project, a Gallagher client reported three separate injuries to employees.
