Appointing IQ to investigate and report upon an injury or other claim or action initiated against you or your client will result in the provision of a prompt and thorough report of the relevant facts. This will allow for a faster, more fully-informed carriage and management of the matter; providing leverage for earlier resolution and potential savings of tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars or more.

Potentially Adverse Findings

If an investigation uncovers facts or prima facie evidence that may tend to indicate some potential liability of you or your client (in whole or part), IQ’s discrete reporting will enable you to drive the best possible management, defence and mitigation of the matter.

In such circumstances, IQ is equipped to provide significant assistance by exploring and reporting on factual avenues relevant to the Claimant and/or other involved parties concerning defences and mitigating considerations under common law and the Civil Liability Act 2003 relating to:

  • Voluntary Assumption of Risk
  • Contributory Negligence
  • Obvious Risk
  • Dangerous Recreational Activities
  • Intoxication
  • Criminal Behaviour
  • Limited liability of public and other authorities
  • Fraud
  • Cross and Counter-claims
  • Contributions and Indemnities

Disclosure, Discovery and Legal Professional Privilege

As you know, it’s not what Claimants/Plaintiffs and their lawyers insert into an originating personal injury claim document, but what they omit that can make all the difference to how and when a claim is resolved, or whether it proceeds from infancy at all.

IQ finds the facts, documents and people the Claimants leave out - including important and crucial witnesses.

IQ maintains a special focus on the aspects of disclosure, discovery and legal professional privilege regarding the provision of investigative reports and associated documents including witness statements and statements of opinion.

When clients have specific instructions regarding reporting requirements including format, content or mode of delivery, IQ will follow those instructions to the letter. There is no “one size fits all” with IQ - reports can be tailor-made.
