    Property Owners Liability
  • PCVA (Abuse) – on a claims-made basis
  • Excess of Loss Public Liability/Products

Read how our expert investigations help reduce customer costs.

    • Detail-focused claims experts tracking medical records.
    • Using RSA technology to cross-reference claims.
    • Coordinating with other stakeholders to keep damages to a minimum.

     

    By combining expert knowledge with the right technology, RSA’s claims team was able to keep damages to a minimum for a liability customer held responsible for a scaffolding accident.

    We noticed medical reports from the injured party reported their condition significantly worsening over time, from minor injuries to persistent complications. Our experience of similar claims indicated that this warranted further investigation.

    We used our Cache Search to identify that the additional injuries were in fact the result of a new road accident, which the claimant was also claiming for separately. Our claims team were then able to settle the claim with an offer of £5,000 by working closely with medical experts and solicitors, significantly reducing the impact to our customer.

    We are leading the fight against industry-wide fraud, using innovative techniques and expertise to identify dishonest claims, reducing the costs for genuine claimants.
