WEBINAR - Personal Injury Claims - Where next?

  • Thu 05 Nov 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
  • Webinar via Zoom
    • Bernard Thornton

PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS – WHERE NEXT? Overview of webinar Over the last 30 years, few areas of the insurance market have seen such frequent and significant changes than that of personal injury claims. Various reforms have been introduced in attempts to tackle sensitive issues such as access to justice, fraud, legal fees and their effect on premium levels. Unsurprisingly these have generated strong feelings on all sides of the argument. The Civil Liability Act, now scheduled to take effect in April 2021, will introduce what are likely to be the most sweeping changes yet. This presentation looks at the background to the current market for injury claims and how it will be affected by the CLA. It predicts the likely consequences for insurers, intermediaries, claimants and the insuring public and takes into account other topical and disrupting factors in the Motor market such as Ogden, general claims inflation and now the dramatic onset of Covid-19. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A ZOOM WEBINAR. Zoom can be safely accessed by most smartphones

WEBINAR Vicarious Liability: have we reached the final destination?

  • Thu 14 May 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
    • Jeff Heasmann, Insurance Upskill

Overview On 1 April 2020, the Supreme Court handed down its judgments in two highly important cases for employers and the insurance industry: Various Claimants v Barclays Bank and Various Claimants v Morrisons. The Court of Appeal had held Barclays to be vicariously liable for the actions of an independent contractor and Morrisons liable for a major data breach committed by a rogue employee who was subsequently sentenced to prison. The Supreme Court has overturned both decisions. In recent years, the law relating to vicarious liability has been in constant motion. What did the Supreme Court say in the Barclays and Morrisons judgments and how will this impact employers and insurance companies? Have we finally got some certainty in this area of law? This thought-provoking webinar will look at both sides of the argument and assess how best employers and the insurance industry can adapt to these recent developments.
