Motor claims

We represent a number of insurer clients and provide advice on a number of policy and indemnity issues as well as defending personal injury claims made against policyholders.

We have experience in dealing with a full range of road traffic accidents from low value personal injury claims that are contained within the RTA portal, to catastrophic injury claims with a substantial valuation of damages (see catastrophic claims for more information).

Where the claim presented is for a small sum and liability has been admitted we take steps to negotiate and settle the matter as swiftly as possible to avoid disproportionate legal costs being incurred by either party. If a larger valued claim is made we have a wide variety of tools at our disposal to ensure that the claimant’s assertions are investigated fully and the medical evidence is reviewed in depth.

Our main objective is to ensure that we obtain the best result for our client whilst delivering a cost-effective settlement. Our team members are commercially aware and are sensitive to the ultimate goals of our business clients so we therefore strive to deal with all matters in an efficient, proactive and assertive manner.

We can also advise business clients on the concept of self insurance in respect of motor claims - see reducing your insurance costs for more information.
