The insurers join in the emotion of the French people regarding the human and material consequences of the floods in the Alpes-Maritimes and offer their condolences to the families of the victims.

The profession undertakes to do everything possible to facilitate the procedures for policyholders and to speed up compensation procedures, in particular through active involvement in the field. Policyholders can also access all the information they need on the website to prepare the claim in relation to the damages they have suffered and the first interim steps to take for prompt compensation.

The FFA points out that all property insurance contracts (comprehensive home insurance, comprehensive business, etc.) necessarily include a natural disaster cover, and that the state of natural disaster has been decreed by ministerial order.

For Florence Lustman, President of the FFA: “I pay tribute to all the security and rescue forces that have been involved since Friday to help the victims of this tragedy. The insurers, who are at the service of individuals and professionals, will take all the necessary measures to help victims with their claims and proceed to the compensation of their damages as soon as possible.
