Insurance Dispute Solicitors in Kent

Many insurance companies abide by uberrimae fidei in their contracts with policyholders – this Latin principle requires both parties to act in utmost good faith and insinuates that both parties will be completely honest with each other. Failure to meet this requirement can not only dissolve such contracts but also lead to insurance disputes. 

If you find that:

  • Your insurance claim has been rejected unreasonably
  • Your insurers refuse to accept liability
  • Your insurers are avoiding the policy completely
  • You and your insurer have a dispute over the amount of a claim

You may wish to involve the services of insurance dispute solicitors. At Whitehead Monckton, our insurance solicitors are trained to resolve insurance disputes as smoothly as possible.

Our Expertise

Whitehead Monckton’s insurance solicitors are equipped with the varied expertise to effectively represent claimants against insurance companies, regardless of the reason for the dispute. 

We can assist in reducing the consequences of delayed settlement of insurance claims with creditors which can create other commercial problems, including insolvency.

We have also developed considerable experience in disputes between parties who work in the insurance industry itself – for example, if problems arise from delegated authority to write insurance policies or the accounting for policy premiums in such cases.

The Whitehead Monckton Approach to Insurance Law

We can assist with a range of insurance disputes. Areas where we can advise include:

  • Loss of stock and materials required for commercial trading
  • Business interruption
  • Refusal of claims for reasons such as breach of warranty
  • Interpretation of policy wording
  • Assessment of damage in flood or fire damages matters


Policies can be rejected or avoided for a number of reasons, from misrepresentation to missing documentation. We’ll assess the situation in detail and gather as much information about the context as we can.

We approach matters of insurance law by using negotiation and mediation as much as possible – by speaking with both parties at length, we can usually reach agreeable conclusions.
