Insurer partners with personal injury lawyer to offer legal services to not-at-fault drivers


Ageas UK has teamed up with personal injury law firm NewLaw Legal to form Ageas Law.

The new division will start trading on 8 April. It  will provide legal services to Ageas’ customers making not-at-fault personal injury claims.

The new division, which is a five-year limited partnership between Ageas and NewLaw, has received approval from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Ageas UK chief executive Andy Watson said: “The objective of launching Ageas Law is to provide Ageas customers with access to a claims service above market norms.

“Creating this partnership provides our customers with a one stop, high-quality journey, with fewer hand offs to third-party suppliers. Our approach is to enable our customers to access a legal solution that can be trusted. The expertise that NewLaw has in this field helps us to achieve this standard.”

NewLaw strategic partnerships director Philip Dicken added:”The partnership will provide Ageas customers with an integrated claims service, improving the overall customer proposition, at the point when a customer may need to claim for personal injury.

“ At the same time, working together brings an opportunity to improve access to justice, a stated aim of the Legal Services Act, as well as increase consumer confidence in legal services and drive fraudulent and spurious claims from the process.”
