InsuranceThe department acts for insurance companies throughout England and Wales, handling a wide variety of claims including:

  • Motor
  • Fraud and credit hire
  • Catastrophic injury
  • Employers' and Occupiers' Liability
  • Public liability
  • Household Claims
  • Health and Safety Matters
  • Technical Insurance Issues Including Policy Coverage

Due to the size of the team and its organisation, its senior solicitors are never far removed from the day to day conduct.

Ford & Warren's Insurance department is aware that legal costs (specifically Claimant's costs) continue to dominate discussion in the market place amongst companies, and in political circles following the change of government. The department overcomes this by ensuring cases settle before trial, or alternatively, that cases are moved to trial swiftly and successfully.

The team operates in a market alongside some giant insurance companies and therefore strives to offer and deliver something different to attract new clients; a combination of service and impeccable results is what keeps its position strong. The department's partner-led service is a unique selling point that is popular with existing and prospective clients.
