Insurance is part of everyday life. When claims arise, you need an expert who understands the factual circumstances and financial issues that relate to the particular claim’s circumstances.
Insurers and the insured both consider claim quantum a critical measure of success in any insurance claim settlement. However, all too often, agreement on quantum is frustrated due to varied interpretations of:
- Concept of ‘actual loss sustained’
- Policy’s Basis of Settlement
- Evidence required to prove the claim

Economic loss is often a significant component of a personal injury claim. Legal professionals practising in the area are challenged by the need to have a detailed understanding of current accounting and tax issues affecting employed and self-employed claimants.
Whether you are acting for a plaintiff or defendant, you need someone who can explain the technical accounting and financial issues of a dispute as simply as possible. You need an expert who can support you in the litigation process in a range of ways including investigating, examining, analysing, quantifying, preparing for court and if necessary testifying.
Vincents can help you meet this challenge.
