Greenwoods has one of the most highly respected motor claims practices in the insurance sector. Our clients, who include some of the UK’s leading motor insurers and well known multi-nationals, expect and receive all of the following: technical excellence, an unrivalled depth of knowledge at a senior level, an innovative and client-centric approach to claims and an unlimited MI reporting capability.
Our teams cover the full range of motor-related litigation, including prosecutions, inquests, county and high court mediation and international motoring law.
All classes of motor claim are handled with one paramount objective in mind; to secure the most appropriate result for our clients at the earliest appropriate time. We know that to achieve this, it is crucial we take early control of the litigation process. To this end, our training and systems are designed to ensure lawyers recognise the need to take early control – and take it.
We pride ourselves on an approach to claims handling which puts each of our client’s commercial interests at the centre of our focus. Proactive and assertive handling of the claims, a focus on early agreement of file strategy, direct implementation thereafter and an ability to initiate open and frank communications with claimants’ representatives all ensure that our claims handling produces consistently the best results.
Our strength in depth is evidenced by the number of senior lawyers we have across all our offices, handling both serious and catastrophic injury claims. Many of our lawyers are featured as specialists in this field by directories including Chambers and Legal 500.
We also have dedicated teams handling claims involving more modest injuries where a rapid resolution is typically the focus, supported by efficient case management tools. Again, we take early control of each claim to drive it to a swift and appropriate conclusion. Usually cases are settled by negotiation, but on occasion, and only where there is no more suitable option, we use the courts. Our aim is to achieve the best possible commercial outcome for our clients, so we ensure that all claims are concluded at the appropriate level and at the earliest opportunity.
In addition we offer a number of services arising from the recent MoJ reforms, including consultancy, training and claims handling.
