The State Claims Agency (SCA) manages the following types of personal injury (clinical and non-clinical) and property damage claims on behalf of its client State authorities, their servants or agents:
The SCA’s objective is to ensure the State’s liability is contained at the lowest achievable level. In cases where the State is considered liable or which involve an apportionment of liability, the SCA’s approach is to settle such claims expeditiously, in so far as it is possible to do so, on reasonable terms. In cases where liability is fully disputed by the State, all necessary resources are applied in the defence of such claims.
The SCA manages claims from their initial notification through to final resolution. Claims are investigated in a thorough and timely fashion in order to facilitate early decision-making in relation to liability and strategy.
