Projector Insurance

Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a new projector and have had it installed by an electrical company that does home theater fit outs.

 

3 weeks later it has fallen off the roof and broken.

Can i claim this on insurance?

 

I tried arguing with the installer and he said its not his fault

something would have to ask your insurance company isnt it ? and depending on your cover on whether will pay for it. ?

Course it's their fault,  obviously improperly mounted - might struggle with your insurance company although you could possibly claim through them and they can hit the installer(s) themselves. 

Ouch, that's rotten luck, was it screwed into the wood studs in roof?

Looking at it now, It's not in the timber just a flat piece of pine.

i doubt your insurance company will cover it under your contents cover, why should they as it is caused by faulty workmanship. not normally listed on insurance.

 

just sue the company thru small claims court. contact your states consumer affairs for the process. its not expensive, you can ask for court costs and you and the installer only can go to court so just you 2 and judge. quite simple really.

Depends entirely on your level of cover - if you have accidental loss/damage cover which is not otherwise excluded - a regular extension offered by most Underwriters these days. Doesn't always come in the form of an extension , it can be simply included. If Underwriters indemnify you for any loss which is caused by someone else who is not an insured party in your policy they automatically pick up your subrogation (legal) rights to recover against that party - whether they proceed or not is entirely up to them.

 

Read your policy and speak to your Underwriter.

 

The installers are entirely responsible - who else could be.

Should be installers that foot the bill on this.........Definitely their mistake.

Threaten them with legal action..........
