THE motor & casualty SPECIALISTS
Horwich Farrelly has been defending personal injury claims for insurers and other compensators since its foundation more than 40 years ago. In addition to our undoubted expertise in Large & Complex Injury claims we handle a wide range of lower value claims arising from motor, EL, PL, Household and Travel insurance policies, on both a delegated and non-delegated basis.
Achieving indemnity spend objectives in these high volume areas requires a combination of effective and responsive tactics, and cost-effective operations, and continuously updated technical expertise.
Our Motor & Casualty department therefore offers an end-to-end service encompassing pre-litigation and Portal case handling, as well as Small Claims Track, Fast Track and Multi Track litigation, delivered via a number of dedicated teams.
We make extensive use of proprietary business intelligence systems to help us monitor and track behaviours in the market, and then work in partnership with our clients to create dynamic strategies to counter sharp practices. Horwich Farrelly’s management and team structures, supported by powerful case management and MI systems, enable us to deliver a tailored, high quality, value-for-money service in line with each individual client’s needs.
All instructions we receive are screened for signs of fraud and where appropriate referred to our market-leading Counter Fraud department and we offer a proven Recoveries service which generates significant returns for the clients using it.
Despite a fixed recoverable costs regime applying to the majority of claims in this area there is a significant propensity for dispute. Our Motor & Casualty teams therefore work closely with our Costs department to develop strategies and tactics to minimise costs risks . Our Costs team are also an integral part of Multi Track handling, working alongside Motor & Casualty team members throughout the duration of a case on budget preparation, advocacy and the challenge of opponents’ budgets.
