part 2 of the Compensation Act

29 August 2006

Many of Browne Jacobsons clients are directly affected by the activities of claims management services and so have an interest in this consultation.

Further, it is understood that the Compensation Act and associated regulations are intended to address public concerns over the development of a compensation culture. One aspect of this concern relates to increased demands on the pockets of the general public in the form of higher public spending on claims and insurance premiums. Such an effects result from the impact of claims management services activities upon defendants.

As a firm which principally acts for defendants to litigation, Browne Jacobson is in a position to draw upon experience of dealing with a broad range of firms, businesses and other bodies representing claimants. It is therefore in a position to identify those practices which best promote the effective management and fair resolution of claims.
