Deafness claims have quadrupled since 2008 and with the advent of a claims portal for RTA and lower value EL and PL claims, accompanied by a fixed recoverable costs regime for those claims has led to a huge surge in farmed, long-tail disease claims, particularly in relation to deafness, as Claimant legal practices and their funders look to replace falling income and profits with more lucrative work.
The DWF Deafness Toolkit is designed to assist in handling NIHL claims. Assessing claims validation, the dwf deafness toolkit can also be used as an anti-fraud resource. By combining a useful set of calculations and functions the toolkit can ensure accurate reserves and swift resolution on deafness claims.
