House insurance

Post by Jazzieb » Thu Jun 28, 2018 9:17 pm

Could anyone explain the difference between 'Souhaitez-vous faire une réclamation?' and 'Souhaitez-vous faire une déclaration de sinistre ?' This is what I was asked when I requested a claim form for a household accident.
TIA.

I thought they were the same thing.
When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth.

Do you wish to declare an incident? (loss)

and

Do you wish to make a claim?

You probably have to do the former within a certain delai, notifying them of an impending claim, the actual value and details of the claim may not be known for some while after, getting devis' finding other things missing, inventing others :lol:

Chancer - I had thought they were the other way round, so glad I asked. Thanks.

They are the other way around, you are correct.

une réclamation = a complaint
une déclaration de sinistre = an insurance claim statement

une réclamation = a complaint
:good: Chancer's right; in the context of insurance 'une réclamation' means a claim.

:D Pity that the French language doesn't have the nice distinction that we have between the words assurance and insurance.
