ORGANIZATION AND CONDUCTING OF EXPERT EXAMINATION, ASSESSMENT OF DAMAGED VEHICLES IN UKRAINE AND ABROAD
Very often the insurers need to conduct a specialized (expert) examination of the damaged vehicle, cargo, circumstances of the injury inflicted to others, etc. The task is much more complicated when such examination is needed abroad. Our company works with leading expert institutions in the majority of the European countries and therefore the Client can be sure of reliability, quality and objectivity of our conclusion. We usually determine the approximate price of expert’s services in advance by setting clear deadlines for order completion.
FINDING FACTS OF ACCIDENT CIRCUMSTANCES, DETECTION AND PREVENTION OF INSURANCE FRAUD
Another aspect of our activities, focused exclusively on insurance companies, is to identify and prevent insurance fraud, and then establish real circumstances of the incident. To do this, our experts and lawyers arrive to the place of the indident, identify and question eyewitnesses, collect and record evidence, collect documentary proof of the facts. Finally, the Client receives a written report of the investigation with a list of all the collected evidence, their evaluation and final conclusion. If necessary, we involve special experts having previously agreed with the client the necessity for their services, as well as their payment.
After the payment of compensation under voluntary insurance contracts, the insurer often receives the right of recourse towards the person responsible for the injury or towards the dishonest insurant. We take all kinds of cases, including court proceedings related to filing claims by way of subrogation (regress) against persons of foreign law (insurance companies, businesses or citizens), involving, if necessary, lawyers in a particular foreign country. By using our services, the insurance company does not bear any additional costs associated with filing of a claim (including costs for translation of documents, etc., and does not need to have a highly paid lawyer or interpreter in its staff, who would be involved in this category of cases). Payment for our services is made after the positive completion of the case in percentage ratio to the amount of actually charged penalty, and usually does not exceed 15% net of expenses that were not reimbursed by another party.
DISCOVERY OF DOCUMENTS FROM THE COMPETENT INSTITUTIONS OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES
The key moment in the settlement of a particular insurance case is the availability of reliable documents from the competent authority of the country where an acciddent occurred. Traffic police protocol, fire service conclusion, investigator’ss order, foreign court judgments – we can obtain nearly any document through collaboration with our partners in a particular foreign country. An additional (and free) option is a short legal commentary to the document obtained, and if necessary – its certified translation into Ukrainian.
