There are many excellent insurance brokers in the UK but as with any industry there are also those that fall below an expected standard of professional behaviour.
Too often these insurance brokers will be quick to sell you a policy without properly considering if it was right for your business and whether it provides the cover that your company needs.
Insurance brokers have a duty to ensure that they properly advise their clients so that they understand what policies they are buying and when they can expect to be paid out.
The problem of professional negligence and mis-selling has been shown up during the Covid-19 pandemic. Even though it was clear the country was going to be hit with the virus and it had potentially devastating for businesses, insurance brokers were still selling policies with Notifiable Disease Extension cover in March without warning clients that it did not include Covid-19.
Law firms now believe that such practices constitute professional negligence or mis-selling.
If this is the case then it may be possible to make the equivalent claim for compensation that businesses were expecting from an insurer against the insurance broker.
Insurance Justice is able to put businesses in touch with appropriate law firms to help them progress such a claim.
We have teamed up with a number of law firms to help ensure businesses are able to get the compensation that they are owed through the failure of the insurance broker.
Once we have spoken to you and received the relevant documents and correspondence we will put you in touch with a law firm that will be able to take on your case. They will discuss a range of potential funding options and consider whether it is possible to take on the claim under a conditional fee agreement, also known as a no win, no fee agreement. In many cases lawyers will be able to claim the costs of running a case from the other side.
If you believe your business has a legal claim against an broker insurer you should contact us on the contact form below outlining why you believe you may have a case.
Insurance Justice will then contact you to get the relevant information and paperwork so that we can put you in touch with the most appropriate law firm.
Any agreement you make will be made directly with the law firm. Insurance Justice will not tie you into any agreement. If a law firm is willing to take on your case it will draw up an individual contract with your business which will clearly outline all of the terms and conditions before you sign an agreement.
