Allianz Legal Protection (ALP) has established a business partnership with specialist clinical negligence claims management company, 5R1 Claims.
Under the arrangement with 5R1, the recent winner of ‘Claims Management Company of the Year’ at the Personal Injury Awards, ALP is the preferred provider of ATE cover to its panel of specialist clinical negligence solicitor firms. ALP offers cover on a delegated authority basis, to the panel firms who are appointed on the strength of their expertise and experience in this field.
5R1, using a team of medically and legally-trained operators, provides a tailored advice and guidance service to patients who may have grounds for a complaint about their healthcare treatment or who have potential grounds for a claim. This approach to dealing with clinical negligence claims significantly enhances the quality of cases offered to solicitors by filtering out many unsuitable cases at the start.
5R1 claimants will now benefit from the combination of the expert knowledge and expertise of the specialist clinical negligence solicitors and the protection afforded by the market-leading policy and underwriting skills of Allianz Legal Protection.
Steve Harvey, senior business developer for Allianz Legal Protection, said: “This is a fantastic endorsement of our ATE solution and we are confident that this partnership has the potential to produce substantial GWP.”
He adds: “5R1 is expert in identifying cases suitable for referral allowing ALP to assess the risk from an underwriting perspective. We want to ensure we continue to provide quality to our customers whilst adapting to the changes driven by the legal environment. “
Sajid Hussain, director of 5R1 Limited, said: “Allianz Legal Protection has an enviable reputation in the market due to their expertise and experience. Their financial strength, stability and commitment to providing innovative ATE solutions in the ever-changing personal injury landscape, makes them an ideal partner for 5R1 Claims and the ideal ATE provider for clinical negligence claimants.”
