The Insurance Fraud Taskforce -Recommendations

  • Posted

The Insurance Fraud Taskforce has conducted a yearlong review of what the major factors are behind insurance fraud and has come up with a series of recommendations for the legal sector.

A list of conclusions includes:

  • The SRA along with accident claims regulator should put policies in place to detect and prevent fraud
  • Insurers should defend more claims rather than settling at the outset
  • Noise-induced hearing loss claims are exaggerated
  • The Government’s proposal to reform the Personal Injury sector will substantially reduce fraud

MPR Solicitors are leading fraud defence specialist solicitors based in London and we are retained by clients in the accident claims management sector to assist in detecting and also combatting any allegation of fraud or breaches of the regulators within the insurance industry.

We are currently acting for several company directors facing allegations of fraud in the accident claims market which has been marred by a spate of high profile targeted police action by the Organised Fraud Team at the City of London police.
