The PIP After the Event Insurance product includes all of the benefits of our Claimsafe scheme and more:
Staged PIP ATE Insurance premiums are available with no additional interest or administration fee of any kind. The After the Event Insurance premium is deferred to the end of the case and is only payable if the claim is won.
Requests are made on-line using a short form which takes no more than 2 minutes to complete. Access all ATE policy data and make any changes by logging in to our Secure Client Area.
You normally only need to tell us when you win, lose or are issuing proceedings. And you do it with just the click of an online button - or let us set up your case management system to do it for you automatically. So that’s it - there’s nothing else to report to the insurer.
Probably the quickest PIP After The Event insurance scheme to use, freeing up you and your fee earners to concentrate on what you do best, handling files.
Demanding that a case always has reasonable prospects is just an excuse not to pay when you make a claim, so the insurer has removed it from the ClaimSafe policy in virtually all circumstances. If you are spending your valuable time on a case, the ATE policy will support your decisions. Not much different from if you had a delegated authority.
For every claim on our ATE insurance policies, we log the date we receive it and the date of the insurer's settlement cheque. The average is 7 days. That’s better than average.
Plus 97.1% of all claims made between January 2010 and June 2012 were paid in full.
If the PIP ATE Insurance Policy premium cannot be recovered from the defendant, you can cancel the ATE Policy at any time without charge. Typical reasons are:
This means that there is no risk that you or your client will ever have to pay the PIP ATE insurance premium, should it not be recoverable from the other side.
If you fail to beat a Part 36 offer, your disbursements and all adverse costs are paid in full (instead of being deducted from your own costs). And there’s no need to liaise with us before you make, reject or accept a Part 36 offer – that’s a decision only for you and your client.
Not many PIP ATE insurance policies offer such great cover with you staying in charge of all decisions, check the terms and conditions of yours now to see if they match this.
Even easier than our website. For most systems we can set up your department so you can request an After the Event Insurance policy directly from your Case Management System at the push of a button. For Proclaim users (Eclipse Legal Systems) we can go even further and fully integrate all ATE Insurance policy procedures. All done by us for free.
We know that some of the costs involved with these sort claims are the upfront disbursement costs. You have to incur these before you can tell if there is a claim to be made or not. The PIP ATE Insurance policy covers these costs – provided you take it out before they are incurred!
