The Enterprise Act 2016 - Damages for Late Payment of Claims
>> Event Overview
The key provision of The Enterprise Act 2016 ended the position under Sprung v Royal Insurance , which held that an insurer could not be liable in damages, even for deliberate late payment of claims and an insured’s redress for late payment was limited to the additional payment of interest.
