John Dougall – Director
John started his insurance career as a school leaver with Commercial Union in their Glasgow Claims Department. He found his niche in liability claims and was rapidly promoted to the position of Senior Claims Inspector after his relocation to their Manchester office. His career development saw a move to a specialist liability adjusting company in Manchester; in 1996 he returned to Glasgow to take over as their Branch Manager. John was then recruited by Property & Casualty Services to manage their Glasgow Office. By 2001, John had been given regional managerial responsibility for all their liability adjusters operating across Scotland and North East England.
John then ran the branch of another specialist liability adjuster in Glasgow and used his extensive experience of liability matters, covering Motor, Employers’, Public and Products Liability to develop that business.
During his long career John has investigated many types of liability claims including those arising from the petrochemical sector (both on and offshore), renewable energy, construction, manufacturing and leisure; plus a number of professional indemnity and medical negligence cases. His experience of the litigation processes in Scotland, England and Northern Ireland enables him to give practical advice to clients on Court processes. He has handled a number of fatalities and complex quantifications of personal injury claims up to £3m. John’s work on significant injury and property damage claims has led to travel in Europe.
John is a past Chairman of the Dunbartonshire Local Committee of the Insurance and Actuarial Society of Glasgow.
