Employer's, Public & Motor Liability

This sector has seen prodigious change in recent years and the changes are still coming.

Taylor Rose TTKW is uniquely placed to ensure that your claims practices, procedures and philosophies are kept up to date. Many of the changes which have been introduced have been informed by data provided by Adrian Jaggard (partner) as Managing Director at Jaggards Ltd. Adrian is a member of the Civil Justice Council Costs Committee and Civil Justice Council Court Fees Consultative Panel. He routinely supports the Ministry of Justice, Civil Justice Council and the Association of British Insurers in the supply of data and industry expertise for the development and delivery of emerging legislation.

For more information on how we can assist you please contact our claims team on 01733 333 333. 

As a commercially-minded and diverse firm specialising in b2b contracts and working with some of the largest nationally-recognised compensators in the UK, we have an intuitive understanding of the needs of defendants of all types and their insurers which comes from years of experience in the claims industry.

Within pre-agreed service levels and ‘Roadmaps’, we offer a full claim lifecycle service – from initial investigation right through to costs, including appeals.

We have consistently found that having our genesis at the forefront of costs litigation has given us an edge over our competitors when it comes to identifying leakage and proposing solutions. Our ability to think laterally is applied day in, day out – it is in everything we do – on a case by case basis and when reviewing and manipulating MI and reporting. Clients find our approach invaluable.

By reviewing our industry-leading MI, we see the bigger picture, identify seemingly minor variations in claims handling which can bring significant savings in the aggregate. We liaise with clients to implement the changes necessary to bring about these savings to overall indemnity spend.

Operating a low claim-count per fee earner relative to our competitors allows us to give attention to detail – in turn, that delivers measurable savings. Our litigation expertise is recognised industry-wide. We pride ourselves on unique systems such as centralised diaries and case management systems and processes which capture around 250 fields of information per claim. This can be fed back to monitor performance/behaviour of claimants, compensators and ourselves.

We strive for better – we cannot do that by ‘working to rule’ – we exceed clients’ expectations. We add value to our services where other legal service providers do not. If you want something from us, just ask:

  • Impromptu and urgent telephone/email advice on uncertain/problem areas
  • Free protective letter (including a reference) to the other side, notifying them of our instruction – often a determinative deterrent to litigation
  • Bespoke, ad-hoc reporting and MI analysis
  • Updates and advice on emerging legal issues/case law
  • CPD-accredited training delivered to your handlers at your offices in accordance with your requirements
  • Discounted access to our suite of online legal documents (www.taylor-rose.net)

These are all things we offer to our clients for no extra charge. 

We hold an unrivalled understanding of the RTA litigation process (both pre and post-issue) and deliver comprehensive training to both our fee earners and to compensators’ handlers on how each part of the process interacts with the others.

In addition to our comprehensive RTA Process services, our range of services in this area is extensive and includes all cases on all tracks, whether on specific instructions or on a delegated authority basis:

Taylor Rose TTKW is at the forefront of costs and claims, with an experienced team of claim handlers - all experts in litigation, establishing liability and negotiation.

Whereas the costs of most emlpoyers’ liability PI claims are now fixed by CPR 45, they are not fixed in disease claims which fall out of the El?PL Protocol. It is therefore essential that you instruct a firm, like Taylor Rose TTKW, to support in the resolution of the claim.

Pre-action disclosure applications

This note has been prepared in order to provide guidance to defendants on the topic of Pre-action disclosure applications. Such applications may be made under 33 of the Supreme Court Act 1981 (c.54) or section 52 of the County Courts Act 1984 (c.28). Avoid them These applications have historically been seen by many claimant firms as a serious revenue stream but they are very often fully avoidable. Things have changed now in any event, because the costs of such applications are covered (arguably at least) by CPR 45.29H. But they can nevertheless present a trap for the unwary. But own-solicitors’ costs are still to be paid in addition to those fixed costs and disbursements, all of w...

In this matter Taylor Rose Law uniquely combined liability litigation expertise with a specialist knowledge of legal costs; this enabled them to identify and advise us on any potential costs and/or conduct points on receipt of the substantive proceedings so we could factor them into the litigation tactics. The judgment in the case of Kilby v. Brown [2014] is another positive step forward for defendant liability insurers against disproportionate and unreasonable behaviour in claims. This is a skill Taylor Rose demonstrate regularly'.

The Senior Courts Costs Office (‘SCCO’) is a specialist division of the High Court. As the name suggests, its primary function is the detailed assessment of costs. Detailed assessment is the process of examining and, if necessary, reducing the bill of costs of a solicitor or litigant in person.  Costs include not only the solicitor’s own professional fees, but also disbursements incurred including barristers’ and experts’ fees (for more information on legal costs and funding a personal injury claim, please see our guide ‘Funding Your Personal Injury Claim’. Summary assessment is a more ‘rough and ready’ procedure than detailed assessment, but the overall approach to...
