The insurance fraud team at 9SJS is proud of its longstanding reputation as a market leader over many decades. Our barristers work closely with the leading solicitors and insurer clients to provide an exemplary service across all evidential, technical and procedural aspects of insurance fraud litigation. We are known for our ethical approach, our frank advice, and our skilled and robust advocacy. We have been at the forefront of many of the developments in this area over more than 20 years, with our barristers leading the way in claims for tort of deceit (including some of the highest reported awards of exemplary damages) and in the headline grabbing contempt of court cases reported in the press. Our trial successes in findings of fundamental dishonesty extend beyond motor and casualty to include areas as diverse as clinical negligence, package travel claims and Animals Act cases.
Our expertise includes:
We are also experts in handling serious and catastrophic injury cases where it is alleged that the Claimant has exaggerated his or her injuries for financial gain. Our experience and successes in this area cover not only the usual array of physical and chronic pain injuries where the extent of any ongoing disability is exaggerated, but also harder to spot (and harder to defeat) cases of exaggerated brain injuries, psychiatric injuries and FND.
