Corclaim Celebrates 12 Months With AA

One year on: Corclaim celebrates successful 12 months with AA

We are celebrating a successful first year as AA Accident Management’s sole advisor for uninsured loss recovery (ULR).

Our team is supporting AA Accident Management’s extensive business client base with cost recovery for damages and other losses arising from road traffic incidents.

Our Head of Corclaim, Mark Merrell, said: “As one of the largest uninsured loss recovery teams in the UK, we are thrilled to be working with the country’s leading motoring organisation and are delighted to have finalised a successful first year, in which we have started building relationships with other major UK brands.

“With more than 40 people dedicated to ULR, we are genuine specialists in this nuanced area of claims handling and law, which means we are able to maximise returns to the clients, thus minimising or eliminating the impact such incidents can have on cash flow and margins.

“Prices at the pumps hitting record highs and vehicle maintenance costs continuing to climb are placing great pressure on businesses that rely on vehicles day to day and, as a result, fleet operators may be expecting huge hits to their bottom lines.

“Managing a fleet is an expensive process at the best of times, and the current economic challenges only heightens costs. However, ULR can help fleet managers claw back money and combat uncontrollable escalating costs, which is particularly vital in a time when cash is key.”

ULR is the process of recapturing costs and expenses a business may have incurred if one of its vehicles has been involved in an incident that was not the fault of an employee. Depending on a company’s insurance policy, these losses may be ‘uninsured’ if not covered and can include repairs, loss of use or revenue, policy excess and replacement vehicle charges.

David Bartlett, head of accident management at the AA, said: “Protecting customers and getting them back on the road is our key priority, and resolving issues quickly and maximising return on any losses is a crucial part of this process. We are pleased to be working with Corclaim as an extension of our business-focussed team.”

Nigel Davies, our business development manager, added: “It is our mission at Corclaim to protect and, where possible, enhance the brand reputation of our clients through professional and efficient loss recovery. We are proud to be building a long-term relationship with the AA and supporting its business clients.”

We specialise in recovering and restoring uninsured losses and manages more than 9,000 uninsured loss vehicle and property matters each year for business clients.
