With the recent changes to the Civil Justice procedures, requiring compliance with tight timescales under the MOJ portal regime the early assessment and case planning which Forbes Casualty team has prided itself on for years becomes an even more effective tool for clients.
Forbes casualty team deals with all types of public and employers liability cases, investigating and defending claims in a pro-active and cost effective manner.
Our lawyers and investigation teams work collaboratively with our clients and fully consider all aspects of a claim. We are fully aware that claims can have not only a financial cost but also a reputational one and we seek to liaise with our clients closely creating a partnership to ensure all eventualities are considered.
Casualty claims have for some time been a target for fraud and will continue to be so. As such our casualty team works closely with our Anti-fraud Unit to identify links, run causation and credibility arguments and take suspected fraudulent cases forward.
Our casualty claims unit also includes a motor, costs, highways and investigations team.
With 'extensive knowledge' that 'inspires confidence', the department at Forbes is led by managing partner Martin Crabtree.
