 Our response:

 

Please see attached.

 

The responses to the FOI questions raised are qualified since the Council
is not the main holder of the data relating to liability claims.  The
Council pays insurance premiums and claims handling fees to Zurich
Municipal who take full custody and control of all liability claims
(Public Liability and Employer’s Liability), whether personal injury or
other losses, and have their own claims handling system to record claims
data.  We are able to download limited claims data to feed into our own
database, but this is not sufficient detail to fully answer questions
raised.

Please note that the money paid out in respect of compensation include all
types of payments made in relation to claims, including payments to
claimants’, solicitors costs, medical experts’ fees etc. We do not hold a
breakdown of the total payments.

 

Further, the figures in the attached spreadsheet are provided according to
financial years and do not include any allowance for claims incurred but
not reported.

written confirmation from Wandsworth Council may constitute an
infringement of copyright. Any intention to re-use this information
