Pursuing sub-contractor's insurers after damage caused to underground fibre wiring

Type: Insurance dispute

Sector: Construction – Roadworks

Amount: £150,000

This was a contractual claim against the insurers of a sub-contractor, who caused damage to underground fibre wiring when digging up a road – despite being made aware of the wiring and its location.

The problem

This had left the claimant out of pocket as they had to settle the costs of the damage, in the order of about £150k. They were seeking to recover back the losses from the sub-contractor as they had been the actual cause of the damage, having not taken appropriate care when digging the road up.

How Escalate helped 

As the claim was against insurers, Escalate had to issue proceedings and start to pursue the claim, but recovered a high percentage of the claim soon after issue.
