Compensation and insurance are two areas of law that are closely linked. In a perfect world, you will be insured for the accident that the compensation claim arises.
Our litigation team at Potts Lawyers has decades of experience in all fields encompassed by insurance law and compensation claims.
We have acted on all sides, be it for the injured party, the insured party, insurer, or the uninsured respondent to the claim. It is this all round experience that makes us best suited to protect your interests, as we have the knowledge and insight into the tactical approaches utilised by each party in negotiating a resolution to the dispute.
Previously, our team has acted in insurance disputes incorporating various industries such as construction, transport, maritime, farming & agribusiness, medical & pharmaceuticals and the like. Within these industries, we are also well practiced in personal injury matters arising from any public, workplace or motor vehicle accident.
Nowadays, our focus lies on defending such claims for insured, self-insured or uninsured clients. We have successfully argued indemnity or coverage for our clients under their respective insurance policies, or if no insurance policy will respond, we argue the minimum compensatory damages award possible all the while being conscious of the legal costs incurred by our client. Often, it is the exercising of a balance between settling a claim both cost effectively and time efficiently.
If you are facing an insurance dispute on an issue of indemnity, or a compensation claim allegedly arising from public liability or professional negligence, contact the litigation team for preliminary advice as to how we can assist you.
