Identifying someone's court attendances can often be quite relevant to insurance claims.
Whilst not every state court provides details of the offence/s for which a person was before the courts, for those that do it can be quite informative.
For matters where the court does not provide offence details, there can still often be additional information of potential value such as:
Is asking for a claimant's criminal history part of your claims process? Using the CDA database as a pre-screening tool could provide a significant cost-saving.
A number of insurance companies currently use the CDA database, most of which have multiple claims officers assigned access. See also Corporate Accounts in the Fees page.
Who are (or could) you be dealing with?
The CDA Database can potentially assist any organisation with not only HR pre-screening, but also individuals and businesses that could become part of that organisation's day-to-day business activities.
For example, has that company or business you are planning on using been before the a criminal court or the civil courts previously? Either as the applicant or the respondent? And, how many times?
Other court list data providers
Court Data Australia is totally unique in the scope and depth of the criminal and civil court list records provided.
Unless a data provider has access to our API (only a very select few do*), then they are simply unable to provide the same extent of court list information. CDA obtains data from over 44 different criminal and courts and tribunals. Our records go back to 2012.
Other data providers will have fully automated systems to capture the 'low hanging fruit' (the better formatted online records), but CDA goes the extra distance in getting every single available record, even where it is necessary to do that manually.
* Contact us and ask whether your data provider has access to our API.
Accessing the CDA Database

When you account is verified, you can conduct searches to see if a name is in the database and how many records there are for that name. Upgrading to paid access will be necessary to see the actual records connected to those names.
