Cockermouth floods: turning to Morgan Clark a second time

February 19, 2016 6:15 am

It’s so sad that many of the victims of the recent flooding in the north have been through this terrible experience before. Cockermouth in particular is going through its second serious flooding in six years.

We worked with many Cockermouth homeowners and businesses after the 2009 floods, helping them with their insurance claims. And while it’s so disheartening to see them affected a second time, it is also very reassuring that many of them have turned to us again. This shows the big difference they felt we made by taking over their claim, allowing them to get on with rebuilding their lives.

One example is an elderly lady whose house backs on to the river in Cockermouth. In 2009, she started an insurance claim herself but soon realised how difficult it would be, so she turned to Morgan Clark – and she is using us again in 2016. She told us: “When I met Morgan Clark, I felt I would have someone on my side who would do the best for me and my children. The insurers took more notice of them than if I’d been on my own, and it was all much quicker than for my neighbours who handled things themselves. So once again I’m just going to let them do everything.”
