Injuries online Insurer Esure has signed up to a personal injury database which provides insurers with details of all personal injury claims including all claims for illness and disease for the entire UK population. This will enable esure to validate an individual’s claims history and identify any multiple or potentially fraudulent claims. The system, CUE PI, managed by Experian the global information solutions company is due to go live by the end of 2002. MD of the insurances division Mike Prentice said: “By using CUE as part of our underwriting process we are also able to enhance our customer service by providing insurance quotes that are based on true risk rather than what has simply been disclosed.”
