Our teams have relationships with the majority of the major insurers and claims handlers in this area, defending a wide range of claims types, from Employers and Public liability to complex and sensitive abuse claims.

A claim being brought against an Education establishment, no matter what the allegation, can be both time consuming for the establishment and stressful for staff being asked to assist investigations and give witness testimony, especially where this is the school's first experience of legal proceedings which is often the case. Forbes Insurance department therefore pride ourselves on our supportive offering to clients throughout the entire process.
