The large loss fraud Specialists
Horwich Farrelly’s Large and Complex Injury Group (LACIG) is arguably the most experienced specialist team of its type in the market. The group includes 17 partners and handle many hundreds of cases each year collectively valued at almost a billion pounds.
The Large Loss team work closely with our Intelligence and Fraud teams to build up a picture of the claimant and assist in assessing credibility. If it is considered that the claimant is presenting a claim which may be fraudulent handlers from both the Large Loss and Fraud teams will work together on those cases to ensure that all investigative tools available to our clients are deployed at the most opportune moment and tactical advice is given in respect of all elements of the claim.
Our detailed investigations will include establishing if an accident has happened as alleged or at all. We will forensically consider all evidence disclosed and obtained throughout the life of the claim to ensure all issues are identified and challenged. We will obtain evidence to enable us to put forward a robust defence and where appropriate take cases to trial and seek findings of fundamental dishonesty.
Full control: We employ a partner-led client focused approach. The individual instructed retains full day-to-day control of a claim. They take all strategic and tactical decisions and deal personally at all key stages with both the clients and the claimant.
Appropriate delegation: By having a structure that does not “force” inappropriate delegation we can achieve more effective settlements.
Setting the pace: Early proactive engagement with claimants, targeted rehabilitation and a careful choice of experts are all employed to drive early settlement – our aim is to dictate the pace of a claim, not simply react to the other party’s agenda.
