Coronavirus: Business Statement - Updated 24th March 2020


We have instigated contingency plans to ensure we can continue to service your claims. In line with the guidance published by the UK Government on 23 March 2020, all of our staff are now working from home. We remain available to attend scenes as required in order to undertake investigations and have introduced additional protocols for working at site. These enhanced procedures incorporate social distancing measures, thorough risk assessment, and the adoption of appropriate controls, thus ensuring that our staff, your customers and all other stakeholders remain safe.

All personnel are seamlessly connected via our intranet and telephone system. You will still be able to call any of our office numbers, or fee earners directly, just as you would have done before these measures were introduced. You can also download our app (by searching for ‘Burgoynes’) on Android or Apple devices for individual’s contact details. Our secure email server is fully operational and we have measures in place to ensure that confidentiality of client data is protected to maintain the same high standards of Information Security.
