Counter-Fraud – Casualty

The longest established casualty fraud team in the defendant insurance market.

Dealing with fraudulent EL/PL claims for major insurers and their corporate clients across all sectors, our team handles the full journey of a claim. From the initial point of contact to data analytics, intelligence requirements, and litigation.

Handling suspected casualty fraud claims requires the sensitive application of hybrid expertise, ensuring the probability of fraud is quickly established and the correct strategy deployed. With over 100 years of technical litigation knowledge, we have the most experience in the market, with specialist liability lawyers offering enhanced fraud investigation capabilities, supplemented by our casualty fraud rings experts.

This experience has seen a number of high-profile results. The team handled the first finding of fundamental dishonesty in an employers’ liability case and secured the first finding of fundamental dishonesty under Section 57 CJCA 2015. We also identified organised activity in trip and slip claims, representing insurers with the highest exposure to the largest cross-industry public liability fraud ring to date. In doing so, our casualty fraud team secured the first successful prosecution of a claimant in a public liability fraud ring, saving insurers in excess of £2.5 million.
