Based on Kelly Whittington, Aviva’s UK director of property claims, said to The Guardian, “As new gadgets and games become more popular, We often witness this showing up in the claims that our customers make.

The company states that they’ve witnessed an increase of 31% in claims for 2021. This is an increase of approximately 68% over the year 2016. The company also notes that the most typical claim is for damaged TVs, where people tend to be a little overenthusiastic.
