Low stock.

Sophisticated and complex, or simple individual acts, fraudulent claims account for millions of pounds of insurer’s money, both in the claims themselves and in costs. Claimant lawyers have to certain of their ground too both in terms of their own costs position and their duty to the court.

Insurers are increasingly seeking to ensure fraudulent claims are eliminated – and the Benefits Agency, Inland Revenue and Crown Prosecution Service all have considerable stakes in doing so too. This is the first full treatment of the topic, providing litigators and insurers with a major work of reference.
