Practice Areas

Heavy motor vehicle recovery and defence

One of Ligeti Partners’ primary practice areas is motor vehicle claims which include heavy motor vehicle recoveries and defence. In these subrogated matters, we act both for and against owners and drivers. 

We know the principal operators in this field, the main repairers and assessors and the peculiarities which arise in these claims. 

We are experienced in commercial motor claims and business interruption claims, including loss of income and liability claims arising from employees’ actions and cargo.

Some examples of the matters handled by our heavy motor team are:

  • Numerous claims involving over height vehicles colliding with road infrastructure including bridges, tunnels, tolling gantries and signage.
  • Claims arising from mechanical defects, including fractured wheel bosses, electrical faults in wiring looms and defective tyres.
  • Large claims arising from defective mechanical loading/unloading equipment.
  • Claims arising from incorrect conversion of vehicles.
  • Accidents arising from driver error.
  • Assessing large loss of income claims.
