The insurance industry is increasingly directing the fraud detection and resolution tools and techniques developed in the motor arena to other lines of general insurance business. This is particularly true in liability insurance, where insurers uncovered £218m of suspect claims in 2009.
On average we save over £33,000 on each liability fraud case we handle
Keoghs’ specialist liability fraud unit couples the breadth of our expertise as the UK’s leading provider of counter-fraud services with the knowledge, skills and experience gained from more than 40 years of handling tens of thousands of ‘mainstream’ liability matters.
We handle the whole range of suspect liability claims on behalf of insurers and self-insured organisations, from pre-proceedings through to litigation and beyond.
The unit offers our clients significant benefits including:
- Fraud savings
In our last financial year, our average saving per resolved liability fraud case was in excess of £33,000 – highlighting the financial benefits of taking on even just a few suspect liability claims.
- Intelligence capability
Like all of our counter-fraud services, our liability fraud unit is supported by the largest intelligence unit in the market. By using intelligence from the outset of the case, we can make more informed decisions on case strategy.
- Punishment and deterrents
Keoghs are experienced in pursuing civil sanctions against fraudsters in order to punish and deter offenders. Indeed we are the most successful firm in the market in obtaining exemplary damages.
- Specialist advice
Our liability fraud unit work closely with other specialist teams with the firm to ensure clients can respond effectively to new and growing fraud threats. For example, we liaise with our fraud rings unit (on liability fraud rings), our disease unit (on suspected disease fraud) and our complex injury unit (on chronic pain cases).
