Insurance

Complete coverage and litigation service for composite insurers, specialist insurers, syndicates, reinsurers, captives, large corporates and self-insured organisations.

Successfully contesting insurance or reinsurance claims demands advanced strategies – especially when large sums are at stake. This may involve out-of-court dispute resolution or even litigation. Whatever the case, the expertise and skills of your legal advisers can make a big difference to the outcome.

Weightmans' renowned insurance specialists consistently achieve results through a highly efficient and genuinely comprehensive service.

Our specialist teams are dedicated to workplace, disease, catastrophic injury, motor, the London market and public sector, and we cover market segments from retail, leisure, construction, transport, logistics and security to travel and rail.

As a client, you'll receive additional support as needed from our in-house investigation, fraud and costs teams to build the strongest case possible. You'll also be kept fully informed of progress through our advanced case management systems, letting you access your own files via secure internet links.

Much more than just a personal injury claims handling firm, we manage every type of insurance and reinsurance claim. We'll take care of all the details, down to advising on difficult policy wording and coverage issues and delivering accredited risk management training. Our focus: to help you to achieve your goals through a tailored, results-driven, cost-effective service.
