Bodily injury claims in Europe: new factsheet series on the development of severe bodily injury claims

Factsheets cover current compensation levels, claims projections for certain types of injuries, and claims-related, country-specific factual and legal information.

Our new series of factsheets provides key information on how severe bodily injury claims are assessed in Europe. Compiled by claims and underwriting specialists at Swiss Re, the factsheets give an overview of current compensation levels in 15 European countries, including claims projections into the 2020s for certain types of injuries. The series also includes claims-related, country-specific factual and legal information.

"At Swiss Re we regularly monitor key legal and claims developments so that our clients have the information and data they need to stay on top of their game, especially outside of their home markets," Andreas Hohl, Executive Claims Manager EMEA at Swiss Re, says.

Pooling our experts' insights and sharing our knowledge with our business partners is an important part of what Swiss Re does. That's why experts in Business Management, Underwriting, and Client Management worked together to produce this series of factsheets, in response to requests from our clients.

Six country factsheets are now available: Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Poland, the UK and the Netherlands. Other European countries will follow soon.

The country factsheets were launched on the occasion of the EMEA Claims Conference in Munich on 21 -22 May 2015, where Claims managers from EMEA discussed the key topics of the current rapidly changing market environment.
