Farm Insurance Claims & Emergencies

We’re human about insurance, so we aim to make the claims process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

We’ve put together a couple of simple steps to guide you through these challenging circumstances and get the help you need, for you, your family and your farm.

Call the claims team with your Farm Insurance policy number: our Underwriters experienced claims advisors will help you register the claim and provide you with advice you can trust and care you can rely on.

What should I do in the event of an accident?

  • Have your policy number to hand
  • Notify the claims team immediately by calling 01 892 7142 to register the claim, any time between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday
  • Give brief details of the claim and request the next steps in order to process the claim
  • Take any reasonable emergency steps to avoid further loss

Farms less than 80 acres would suit our Smart Farm Easy Policy.

Farms larger than 80 acres requiring specific, customised cover should check out our Smart Farm Choices Policy.

Public Liability protects you if your negligence (or your employees’ negligence) causes damage or injury to the public. Standard cover of up to €6.5 million for public liability claims. Public Liability cover does not protect you against injury to an employee or voluntary helper on the farm. You will need Employers Liability cover for this.

You have an option to add Employers Liability cover which will protect both family and non-family workers. Our policy provides cover for up to €13 million if employers liability is chosen.

Personal accident cover is an optional additional benefit you can chose which provides you with an income if you are unable to work on your farm due to an accident. The payment starts after one week and can be used to pay someone while you're unable to work.

Temporary total disablement is payable for a maximum of 104 weeks and a weekly payment limit of between €300 and €700 applies depending on the option you have selected.

Temporary Partial Disablement (which would be the most common claim) is payable for a maximum of 26 weeks and a weekly payment limit of between €300 and €700 applies depending on the option you have selected. Our Team can discuss these options with you.

Tractors and agricultural vehicles including diggers, loaders and quads: Option to include third party, fire and theft, or comprehensive cover for farm vehicles. Trailer cover is also available.
