Late Payment of Claims – The Next Battleground Uncovered and Explained
The Enterprise Act 2016 introduced the notion of damages for late payments of claims. The provision has not received much attention until now. With disputes continuing around payment of claims for business interruption, despite the recent Supreme Court decision in the FCA test case, many policyholders and their lawyers are threatening satellite litigation in seeking damages for late payment of claims. But what does the law say about late payment of claims? What tests does a policyholder need to satisfy to qualify for damages? How can we defend these claims? What can we learn from other jurisdictions? This webinar will seek to answer these questions and, through a review of the original Law Commission reports, provide background as to the intention of the law. This webinar will also provide views on how the challenges are likely to develop in the coming years as policyholders and their lawyers increasingly raise arguments seeking damages for late payment of claims.

In this webinar, Jeff Heasman will use his vast experience as a lecturer in tort law and insurance law to strip proximate cause back to the basic principles, trace its development up until the Supreme Court decision on 15 January 2021 and then provide views on what impact the decision will have on underwriting considerations going forward.

It is essential all insurance staff have a good understanding of the different types of way in which a company could be structured and failing to understand these structures could lead to wrong cover being put in place.

Webinar Event - Under Insurance on Personal Lines Products
This webinar, delivered by Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, examines the challenge of making sure personal lines policyholders avoid under insurance.
