AIA Loss Assessors Ltd. was set up by Pat McCormack in 2010.

Since then, we have successfully negotiated claims on behalf of clients all over Ireland and in the UK.

Customer service is without a doubt, our number one priority. We pride ourselves in communicating with our clients throughout every single stage of the claims process.

We believe it is absolutely essential for property owners to be represented on all claims. After all, would you consider going into court without being represented by a Solicitor?
