Costs

Cost negotiations are one of the key aspects of the insurance litigation process that can make a real difference in the amount that an insurer is liable to pay.

In our experience the costs of bringing a claim have the potential to exceed the value of the claim itself. We therefore consider the cost implications at every stage of the case and, where appropriate, use Part 36 offers so that substantial costs savings can be made. See case studies.

We understand that our clients need to maintain reserves for costs in order to manage claims effectively and we therefore ensure that cost levels are monitored carefully and regular updates and estimates are provided.

At the conclusion of a matter we endeavour to deal with the cost negotiations as quickly and efficiently as possible whilst ensuring that the most cost effective result is obtained for our client.

With expertise ranging from predictive cost cases to substantial cost claims in catastrophic injury matters we are well placed to provide our clients with an efficient service in managing third party costs and can often achieve significant savings.

Our team is able to provide a complete service advising on recoverability issues, preparing points of dispute and providing advocacy in relation to detailed assessment hearings when necessary.
