Claims defensibility

Unique to Willis Towers Watson, claims defensibility is a detailed analysis / health-check of your civil liability arrangements, carried out by a qualified solicitor in order to identify weaknesses in your business and recommend changes where appropriate. The assessment focuses on safety management practices and procedures, your written policies, documentation and investigations, along with a review of settled claim files, thus revealing your ability to successfully defend liability claims and help you implement changes necessary to enable you to sustain successful defence strategies.

Delegated claims management

Many of our clients are accepting a greater portion of risk in the form of each and every excesses and/or aggregate deductibles. This invariably gives them a greater say in the management of claims within their self-insured retention. Proactivity is key to effective claims management. Our aim is to drive all claims to their ultimate conclusion, be that a court hearing or pre-injuries board settlement, at the earliest opportunity and at the lowest possible cost to you.

Through our partnership with leading specialist liability claims adjusters, we ensure that your interests are kept at the forefront at all times and that no claim is settled without your express approval and authority.

Major and complex losses

When major losses occur, and when insurers are increasingly taking an ever-hardening line regarding policy coverage issues and claim adjustment, clients need more than just a conventional claim notification and simple intermediation services from their broker.

Willis Towers Watson provides a dedicated resource of experienced claims professionals who can work with clients to fully project manage the process of ensuring that the insurance programme responds as it was intended to do and that the claim is brought to a conclusion in a timely and professional manner.

Whether it be a complex contractors all-risk claim, or a property damage/business interruption claim following a catastrophic event, or a professional indemnity claim that brings reputational risks, Willis Towers Watson provides a complete claims service to ensure that our clients’ best interests are served at all times and that our clients are fully protected at all stages of claims negotiation in order to obtain the best possible outcome.
