My expertise includes providing clear direction on matters surrounding catastrophic injury and large claims, commercial insurance, and employers and public liability claims.
I specialise in defending claims for insurers involving accidents at work, public liability, property damage and motor accidents. I identify issues of exaggeration early on and make a priority of settling claims as soon as possible, unless a strong issue is identified which prevents this.
In addition to providing authoritative, clear direction on litigation matters I work across the industry providing policy advice in relation to the areas of claim identified. Understanding client needs and delivering service excellence is important for this.
