Motor

A genuinely full service, from first notification of loss; to settlement of claims; to recovering your outlay.  No matter the value, we have dedicated teams dealing with fraud, credit hire, technical/cross border issues and criminal/regulatory enquiries. 

Claims involving motor vehicles can be a real burden on every kind of business and their insurers. The sheer volume of cases and the associated cost can have a serious effect on operational performance.

Weightmans’ strength is the ability to process these cases with maximum speed and efficiency, identifying the optimal outcome at the outset and then achieving it.  We have costs lawyers embedded in our teams so that this issue is front and centre when key decisions are made.

Weightmans' Motor team is a market leader in this field, with a unique mix of insight and expertise in handling every kind of motor claim and associated activity.

As a client, you'll benefit from our total dedication to quality service in every aspect of our work. Our procedures are supported by tailored case management software, which allows you to view progress of individual cases at any time.  We want to know how you work and our team will complement your world.

As well as your spend on damages and costs being reduced through sound tactics, you will find cost control and budgeting easier to manage, with many of our services being deliverable on a fixed-cost basis if required.

As well as handling litigated work, we provide a claims handling service that can be tailored to your particular needs, whether for third party claims, dealing with recoveries or managing third party capture.

In the longer term, we aim to help you improve your overall financial and operational performance by reducing the impact of motor claims on your organisation. We do this in a variety of ways, including regular statistical analysis of your claims records, reports on trends including claimant behaviours, information bulletins and tailored training programmes.  Weightmans also enjoy a close relationship with government and so our strategic advice is well informed.
