Vehicle Hire & Damage Fraud

Who are we?

We were the first law firm to identify the issue of Vehicle Hire & Damage Fraud (as distinct from Vehicle Hire & Damage occurring within personal injury fraud claims) and are still the only law firm to have a, truly, dedicated, Vehicle Hire & Damage Fraud team in the market.

We established early that the best outcomes were achieved by positioning our vehicle hire & damage fraud lawyers within our vehicle hire & damage team as they need a unique skill set to ensure that, while suspicious claims are under investigation, vehicle hire & damage claims are limited and do not unnecessarily escalate.

In order to ensure that there is a complete joined up approach with our claims validation intelligence team, our dedicated vehicle hire & damage intelligence analysts and researchers sit in the same physical environment as the claims validation analysts.

How can we help you?

The benefits are that we are able to:

  • Identify individuals to look out for in commercial organisations involved in fraud
  • Identify adverse practices adopted by CHOs and Claimant solicitors enabling us to advise on appropriate strategies in dealing with vehicle hire & damage cases
  • Provide you with up to date information on Courts and judicial decisions being made in relation to vehicle hire & damage fraud
  • Identify your credit hire fraud exposure/detection compared to the industry, specifically whether you are being targeted by particular strategies
  • Use our wider links with key organisations such as IFB, IFED and Police to provide an integrated and effective service
