Catastrophic Claims Handler

Posted 29 October by Jigsaw Services Ltd

Outstanding opportunity for a Bodily Injury / Large Loss Claims Handler / Solicitor to join a firm highly ranked in Times Best Companies to work for

Part of a 'Head Office' working environment, with a superb office culture and not just a competitive salary; a great range of benefits that include an industry leading bonus scheme. This expanding insurer client is seeking an experienced career focused Senior Claims handler or Solicitor to handle a portfolio of high-value complex and catastrophic motor injury claims. With ambitious growth plans, this is an opportunity for claims professionals to advance their career (progression can take the route of higher delegated authority or Team Manager or Technical Manager or Operations) working to deliver compensation to injured claimants quickly, fairly and at the right level.

Dealing with high-value claims, the Large Loss Handler / Solicitor's responsibilities will focus on handling a portfolio of motor claims with damages valued in excess of £100,000 (to unlimited). You will be a senior point of referral within the Personal Injury team and provide advice, training and guidance, as appropriate. By working autonomously you will be formulating strategy, questioning evidence and expert witnesses, running a caseload independently and where appropriate liaising with claims partners and panel solicitors to ensure claims are progressed in a timely manner and that costs are controlled at all times (limiting litigation as much as possible).? You will ensure that you and the business comply with internal and external regulatory requirements.

Get in touch if you are not looking for a processing job, as this most certainly is not one! If you are passionate about your craft, motivated to utilise your communication skills and judgment to engage with the other side, have those difficult conversations, go out and meet parties and above all be proactive and pragmatic then this is a role you need to take a serious interest in. If running a caseload independently appeals, having a delegated authority of at least £100,000 but work on claims much higher (depending on your experience sometimes under supervision) your career aspirations will be fulfilled.

You'll either be an experienced Bodily Injury / Large Loss Insurance Claims professional or a Legally trained and experienced Catastrophic Solicitor / Legal Executive wishing to transfer your career into the Insurance sector. Your claims experience will need to be with values exceeding £100,000 including sound technical knowledge of calculating future losses. Strong technical motor insurance claims knowledge around RTA Claims, MIB agreements and insurance contracts.
