Having insurance cover in place is sometimes mandatory and sometimes voluntary, however that insurance is in place to cover you for a risk. Once you have your insurance cover in place you feel secure and happy that if anything were to happen that you would be covered.

However, sometimes making an insurance claim is not that straightforward and the insurance company you are making a claim against may dispute either your cover or the claim you are submitting.

In the event that you are involved in an insurance dispute it is easy to feel that you are up against a brick wall fighting against a system where you cannot win as you don’t know the rules. However, as insurance solicitors, we do know the rules and we can fight the system on your behalf.

Some of the types of insurance disputes you may be facing are:

  • Claims over building or construction work
  • Significant losses
  • Professional indemnity claims (insurance used by people in professional services)
  • Highway claims
  • Claims against the local authority

This list is not exhaustive however, and if you are facing an insurance dispute please do get in touch and we can offer advice about whether you have a case.
