Civil Fraud

Our insurance fraud team has developed a strong working relationship with leading solicitors firms and insurance companies in the field, and has earned a reputation based upon consistently excellent results.

Fraud has become a more common place in recent years and litigation in this area is increasing. Recent “crash for cash” documentaries only highlight the problems faced by Insurers. 

Given the current economic climate, it appears likely that practitioners specialising in such work will become more in demand.

We recognise the need which Insurers have for barristers with knowledge of such claims and have set up a dedicated team of barristers who can offer Insurers the service they require.  Our civil fraud team receives a significant number of instructions per week, and are able to provide quick turnaround times where required.

Members deal with cases from a pre issue stage through to trial. Our team deals with:

  • Staged accidents (including fraud rings)
  • Slam-on accidents
  • Phantom passenger claims
  • Low velocity impacts
  • Exaggerated claims

Members understand the heavy evidential burden upon Insurers in all cases and are able to advise Insurers on the necessary steps to succeed at trial.

Members are also fully aware of the financial implications of a fraudulent claim, and of the difficult balance to be struck between proving fraud and recovering the costs expended in doing so.

Many current fraud ring trials are currently taking place in Northern Courts and members are always prepared to travel.

Our team is also approved to act on behalf of several major Insurers.

Changing the discount rate - what, when and why?

This afternoon there was an announcement to the London Stock Exchange of a forthcoming change to the discount rate in relation to calculating compensation payments. Most people had probably never heard of it this morning, but the development has wiped billions off the value of major insurers and looks set to be front page news tomorrow.
