We are in the unique position of having developed substantial legal and consultancy expertise across a broad range of telematics issues, over several years. From advising on data protection and disclosure issues to utilising the data within claims and litigation, we can help you to leverage the power of telematics data to improve and drive claims performance, as well as to save costs.
We can provide advice on the different types of data available (and the relevance of each type to the claims process), interpreting GPS data, accelerometer data and crash alerts, and how to use telematics to prevent claims from happening in the first place. In addition, we can advise on the accuracy of data and how to spot and deal with anomalies, the ethical and compliant handling of data, and how it can help deliver measurable efficiency and claims costs savings.
In November DWF commented on the draft report on the Motor Insurance Directive (2009/103/EC "MID") of the Internal Market Consumer Protection Committee (IMCO) produced by Rapporteur Dita Charanzová. This month the proposals have been voted on and approved by the full Parliament. Amy Jeffs reviews recent developments.
In 2017 we reported on the Court of Appeal decision in Cameron v Hussain. Today the Supreme Court handed down the hotly anticipated judgment in the appeal of that decision. The Supreme Court upheld the insurer's appeal, reversing the Court of Appeal decision.
Following the important decision of Coulson J at first instance in Grove Developments Ltd v S&T (UK) Ltd in February of this year (which we considered in an earlier article), the eagerly awaited Court of Appeal decision following S&T (UK) Ltd's appeal has now been handed down.
We work as part of one of the largest, most innovative insurance and claims teams in the UK, drawing expertise from across the firm to build market-leading teams. What sets us apart however is our specialist telematics team includes legal experts, forensic telematics claims consultants, data protection specialists and intelligence analysts working together.
