Insurance Services

It is a well-established truism for the insurance industry that claims do not get cheaper as they get older. BTLawyers’ goal is to assist its insurer clients to resolve claims quickly and efficiently but not at the expense of higher settlements. BTLawyers has been hugely successful at this.

In our insurance practice area our clients report superior outcomes both in terms of reduced settlement amounts and shortened claim duration across the board. This can be seen most clearly in the workers’ compensation area where our firm can be compared to other law firms as a result of reports WorkCover Queensland publishes for public viewing.

Those reports show that BTLawyers has consistently achieved lower than average settlement amounts when compared with other law firms. BTLawyers’ settled claims demonstrate an average settlement of less than $80,000. That’s averaged across more than 350 resolved claims. Compared to the average claim cost published in a recent report to Parliament by WorkCover Queensland, our clients enjoy a saving of almost $30,000 per claim.

Minimising Exposure

We provide greater certainty
BTLawyers provides clients with a high degree of guidance and certainty in managing their claims. Our firm’s track record makes the best case for our expertise in this area.

Across our portfolio of hundreds of workers compensation claims over five years, a recent report published by WorkCover Queensland showed that our team contained the average claim costs at between 30% and 50% less than the average claim. This saved our clients, on average, more than $30,000 per claim.

Our fixed-fee pricing, persistence and expertise make us a well prepared, exhausting opponent.

BTLawyers is your ally in maximising the risk for your opponent and protecting your bottom line.

Accurate, low settlement results
Our team provides an estimate of the likely claim cost as soon as we are instructed. Our experience ensures high estimate accuracy, usually within 5 – 10% of the final claim cost. We will keep you updated on the likely claim cost throughout your case. We understand the importance of doing this for our insurer clients.

Speed of resolution
BTLawyers’ streamlined processes mean that claims are resolved on average within 10 months (across our entire portfolio), with at least 40% resolved within six months.

Defend the contestable
BTLawyers’ experience ensures our clients defend only those claims that should be defended. Mediation and out of court settlement are often the most efficient path.

BTLawyers sets the precedent
BTLawyers has a strong track record of successfully defending claims and creating important judgments that act as valuable precedents for our clients.

Tried and tested multiple case management systems
Our firm manages each file according to strict protocols and procedures. When intereacting with us you will know at a glance the status of each of your files.

The service BTLawyers provides its insurer clients has been tested and proven in all areas of insurance claims management.
