Credit Hire Aware 9


Welcome to another edition of Keoghs’ regular Credit Hire AWARE. Credit Hire Aware 9

In my review of the quarter I reflect on the changes in the market and the subsequent impact this is having.

Highlights in this issue of Credit Hire AWARE include Melanie Mooney’s article looking at McBride v UKI, a case handled by the complex credit hire team. Also, Fraser McAndry discusses the increasing frequency of suspicious storage and recovery charges in credit hire claims.

On page 12 I provide an overview of our 2015 Credit Hire Annual Report, highlighting some of the key data that has come from our analysis of claims handled by the team in 2015.

As always, if you have any queries about anything featured in this issue please do not hesitate to contact us.
