Expert Witness & Insurance Litigation Support

At Edward Drummond & Co we provide insightful, accurate and up to date research/data into market sectors, companies and individuals to enable Insurance Litigation solicitors on both Defendant and Claimant based claims to assess quantum and to settle claims.

Our Claims Support work extends across both Claimant and Defendant clients for loss of earnings (and opportunity/chance) claims; covering as such a very broad range of sectors and disciplines. Claimant profiles are many and varied ranging from individuals with specialist skills at the beginning of their career to more senior Board level Directors; the commonality being where individual earnings and opportunities have been curtailed through accident or negligence. On the Defendant side, we have worked with many of the leading Chambers rated Insurance Litigation Solicitors along with Insurers such as QBE, RBS, and AIG.

Instructing Solicitors (Defendant & Claimant) use our research/data to quantify claims and to assess and calculate loss of earnings and loss of opportunity/chance. Our insight is bespoke and customised for specific claims involving specific individuals and career paths. We are used therefore on claims where career path and remuneration data is required which is not currently in the public domain, and where information relating to a specific sector or person is required to build an accurate picture regarding a loss of earnings/opportunity/chance claim
