          This day is aimed at Insurers who have exposure to personal injury claims and is also of interest to fraud practitioners. 


          Topics for the day include:

          Rehabilitation Claims -  How has the rehabilitation Industry evolved since the introduction of the 2015 rehabilitation code ? What  new adverse behaviours are we seeing and how can Insurers control their indemnity spend without driving litigation?

          Fraudulent Rehabilitation Claims – Where is the line between sharp practice and fraud? What is the role of the rehabilitation agency when defending fraudulent claims?

          Tinnitus in RTA claims –  What is the potential scale of the issue with expert input from ENT Consultant, Ian Johnson. What strategies should Insurers use to identify and combat spurious and potentially fraudulent claims?

          Costs building in fixed cost RTA claims – How are Claimants using disbursements to increase their profit margins? Is there anything insurers can do to combat this behaviour?

          Claims incubation and part 8 stays – What can insurers do to protect themselves?  How are the courts approaching these matters?
