Credit hire is not common within the Irish market and for that reason significant savings can be made via early negotiations, particularly in injury cases. The PIAB doesn’t make full provision for large credit hire claims, and most of the hire providers pursuing claims in this market know this. We have a wealth of experience in reducing credit hire claims and challenging spurious additional charges, unlike many firms in the jurisdiction, who are unlikely to have had the same level of exposure to hire claims across Ireland.
Our experience and well-honed strategies implemented across the UK means we are uniquely placed to aggressively tackle fraud within the Irish market. Ireland has a reputation as the claims capital of Europe and there are many reasons for this: the high awards compared to other jurisdictions; the simplicity of the PIAB process; the apparently pro-plaintiff courts and eye-watering legal costs, amongst other things.
Throughout a large loss claim, we act as an extension of the insurance/ litigation team and are always on hand to provide the crucial support needed to achieve the best possible outcome. This collaborative approach gives us even greater insight into the needs and demands of our clients, ensuring we are always devising the right strategy to meet their needs.
We recognise that an insurer’s ability to recover their outlay is fundamental to enhancing their customer’s journey, as well as growing their business and improving cash flow. We are experienced and, importantly, very efficient at carrying out this essential function on behalf of our clients. We aim to reduce lifecycles and change behaviours in the market.
Large & Complex Injury
Given the complexity of these claims we work closely and collaboratively with our clients throughout the life of a claim. Early advice is crucial for these claims along with sensitive handling. Our team is experienced in many types of claim, including fatal accidents, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, complex multiple injury cases and abuse claims.
