Understanding the common insurance claims during these colder months can help you prepare and mitigate potential risks. Here, we explore prevalent winter insurance claims in South Africa and how Leigh Insurance stands ready to support you through these seasonal hazards.

1. Burst Pipes and Water Damage

To combat the cold, the use of heaters, electric blankets, and fireplaces increases. Unfortunately, this also raises the risk of accidental fires, potentially leading to devastating property damage.
