Authored by DCL

DCL are delighted to share that we won the Counter Fraud Award at the British Claims Awards, alongside DWF, for bringing a private prosecution against a fraudulent claimant.

This is a great achievement for both of our teams and recognises our work in fraud prevention, safeguarding policyholders, and driving innovation and improvements that impact the wider market. But the work doesn’t stop there…

We are calling on the insurance industry to intensify efforts in combating fraud following this win!

Carl Cripps, Claims Director at Direct Commercial Limited, said:

“I am pleased to see DCL and DWF win this prestigious award. We hope this will inspire more firms within the industry to pursue private prosecutions against fraudulent claims. We intend to keep raising the bar in our fight to protect policyholders and we urge others in the industry to join us in this crucial fight.”

Mathew Lynch, Director at DWF, commented:

“We are delighted to have won the Counter Fraud Award with DCL. It takes brave and bold steps to push boundaries and in doing so, DCL not only protect their customers, which is centric to their ethos, but the whole industry benefits as a result of it.”

The recognition of DCL and DWF’s efforts at the British Claims Awards underscores the importance of collaboration and innovation in tackling insurance fraud. We are both committed to setting higher standards and encouraging industry-wide participation in the fight against fraudulent activity.
