 Zurich is the largest Occupational Disease claims handler in the UK, responsible for over 27,000 cases per year.

  • Our centre of excellence with 60 experienced staff ensures we have the right expertise to deal with often technically complex claims.
  • In addition, we have partnerships with specialist solicitors to ensure that cases are also dealt with in the best possible way.
  • We deal with historic disease types, such as mesothelioma and deafness, and constantly research potential new areas, such as acoustic shock and mobile telephone tumours, to ensure that we are ready for any potential claims.
  • Our size allows us to take a robust stance on litigation and have been involved or led most of the leading disease court cases in the last few years, including Baker v Quantum.
  • We have set up an Industry wide group to share knowledge of OD fraud methods, and further improve detection rates.
  • In 2012 Zurich won a total of three industry awards in recognition of our ground breaking approach to occupational disease fraud.
