The Motor Claims group manage a portfolio of claims encompassing high volume ‘crash and bash‘ motor vehicle recoveries, including but not limited to indemnity disputes relating to misrepresentation and non-disclosure, staged collisions, deliberate damage or staged theft and fraud on the claims process.
Our team is experienced in motor vehicle recovery/defence litigation and the procedures in the small case/general division of the Magistrates Court. We confidently assess prospects of success early in the claim to identify our client’s position in the dispute, we look for ways to identify and resolve claims at an early stage and we have the confidence to act within the bounds of broad general instructions to progress matters without the need to constantly refer back for instructions on mundane points.
The Motor Claims group always listens and is empathetic to the personal situation of any claim of financial hardship which is put to them. The team is trained in appropriate language and attitude to approach such situations, i.e. limit the ‘legalese’ used and ensure they are listening to what is being said to them as well as documenting the claims made so that the client can be fully informed.
McCabes has extensive expertise in defending claims, including dealing with claims and demands made against a variety of motor policies from private domestic through to motor fleet and heavy haulage. We regularly advise and represent insurers in relation to liability disputes, credit hire disputes, excess repair costs disputes, total loss and consequential business losses.
We understand the costs to insurers of credit hire and repairer-related disputes and have experience in fighting back against these claims, achieving significant results and cost saving for insurers. We use industry-leading experts and our own rates scraping to ensure defended claims are best prepared to either achieve settlements beneficial to our insurer client or to be best placed for the hearing of a matter.
