Claims notifications continued to rise in 2021

Last year, claims frequency plateaued, a sign of potential flattening of market conditions. However, we expect to see Q3 and Q4 2021 claims increase in the coming months, due to a three- to six-month lag in claims reporting, which also took place in the previous year.*


*Note: Information for 2021 is based on data collected until the end of the year; the number of claims registered in the third and fourth quarter of 2021 is expected to increase due to a lag in notification, as well as collection and qualification of data.
