Our Casualty counter fraud solicitors, led by Suzanne Milne, act extensively for insurers, the public sector, self-insureds and companies and deal with the full range of casualty fraud cases, which continue to increase in number as the market changes.
We have leading expertise in handling fabricated, contrived or exaggerated claims or accidents and we have dealt with and defeated one of the largest known casualty fraud rings in recent years (public liability). In addition to extensive findings of Fundamental Dishonesty in casualty cases, we also have secured several findings of Contempt of Court (attracting custodial sentences) and in 2020 have secured a finding of collusion against a third party facilitator.
We have technical excellence in the casualty liability sphere which remains crucial when faced with the nuances of specialist casualty risk and/or high value quantum claims. We pride ourselves on understanding the objectives of our clients to ensure that the appropriate handling strategy is adopted and delivered to achieve the desired outcome. This includes promotion of positive publicity as an active deterrent.
