Czech insurance claims and damages rise in 2017

Insurance claims in the Czech Republic climbed top around 284,000 in 2017, an increase of around 31 percent, on the previous year, the Czech Insurance Association has announced.

One of the biggest factors in the rise were the number of claims lodged due to wind damage caused by October’s Herwart hurricane. It was the 11th most damaging event since 2002.
