The cost of insurance fraud

Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

In 2010, investigators for the Association of British Insurers (ABI) uncovered 133,000 fraudulent claims of which 66,000 related to home insurance.  40,000 cases of motor fraud were uncovered.  
 
Nick Starling, the ABI's director of general insurance and health, has confirmed this week that tougher surveillance measures were being introduced to tackle fraud and in early 2012, a national Insurance Fraud Register will contain details of all known insurance cheats.
 
I very much hope that the ABI will agree to allow personal injury lawyers to have access to the Register, as we all have a part to play in combating this problem.
