About Property Claims Loss Assessors

Property Claims Loss Assessors (PCLA) are insurance assessors who work on behalf of the public.

The company is dedicated to helping people who have suffered accidental loss or damage to their home or business, receive the full compensation that they are entitled to from their insurance company.

The team deals with the insurance company on their client’s behalf by understanding the terms of the client’s policy, carrying out tests to find out exactly what can be claimed for, and negotiating the best possible settlement as a result. 

All of PCLA’s team members have excellent working relationships with the loss adjusters appointed by the Insurance Companies, meaning all claims are dealt with efficiently and with minimum time wasting.

The company was founded in June 2015 by Greg Smyth – who has over 20 years experience within the insurance industry. Greg also has a strong team working alongside him in order to make sure that every claim is dealt with quickly and effectively. 

With an office located in Belfast they cover all areas of the country to ensure you receive your full entitlement
