Advising market-leading insurers across a full range of motor claims

A leading supplier of legal services to the defendant motor insurance market, our motor team handles thousands of motor cases each year. We advise prominent motor insurers in claims ranging from outsourced, pre-litigation and non-injury claims to complex, multi-track personal injury cases. 

Our areas of expertise include cross border road transport, credit hire, emergency services motor claims, fleet risks, indemnity and coverage advice, motoring prosecutions, pre- and post-litigation motor claims and recoveries.

We deliver a quality, cost-effective service while tackling claims inflation, claims leakage, and fraud issues. We manage our volume work using a customised case management system, tailored to meet each insurer's individual requirements.

Our fraud and criminal defence expertise means we provide a complete service offering for insurers and insureds, a full range of expertise from a single provider, streamlining the procurement process and reducing costs.

We use the latest Management Information (MI) and business intelligence technology to provide analysis and identify new market trends. We use Artificial Intelligence in the decision-making process by recommending a particular course of action based on defined parameters. Through early decision making, indemnity spend and cycle times are controlled and reduced, respectively. 

Our legal specialists continually monitor developments affecting the motor insurance landscape, not only tracking developments, but actively participating in consultations to help shape and influence the law.

 

The team are extremely knowledgeable and are able to handle the wide variety of claims we are exposed to.
