Claims and Duty to Disclose

All incidents and potential claims must be notified to insurance@scu.edu.au at the earliest opportunity.

The University has an obligation to notify the relevant insurer of potential claims. There is a duty to disclose all known circumstances, facts or events (notifiable events) which could lead to a claim.

Factors that may impact on the success of an insurance claim:

  • Failure to advise the insurer of facts or circumstances which could result in a claim, in a timely manner
  • Admission of liability or fault
  • Criminal acts
  • Non-compliance with relevant legal or regulatory requirements

All claim forms and supporting information should be forwarded to insurance@scu.edu.au who will liaise directly with the insurer and, where relevant, advise you of the outcome of your claim.
