Utility extensions – a repeat of the pandemic expectation issues? Webinar

  • Tue 08 Feb 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Damian Glynn, Sedgwick International UK

The FCA Test case showcased the range of different perceptions about the scope of disease cover. There are residual issues that are likely to litigate but we broadly know where we stand on the core issues. But misunderstandings about business extensions are not limited to disease covers – in particular, utility failure cover is provided generally on two fundamentally different bases (with a hybrid variant for good measure), threatens aggregation over a wide area if there were to be an extensive power outage, and would inevitably reveal misunderstandings about the extent to which the loss of internet sales might, or might not, be covered. In the light of the above, this session will explore aspects of a power outage scenario and highlight the potential for further disputes mirroring that over COVID-19.

How contract conditions can change the liability of an insured and why brokers must advise clients on this.

  • Thu 27 Jan 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
    • Alan Chandler

Many policyholders sign contracts without realising they are potentially exposing themselves to liabilities that are not covered by their insurances. Often these contracts are signed in order to either win business or obtain key supplies, either way they are extending their liability beyond the potential protection provided by the liability insurer. Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will explore what Public and Products liability policies normally cover and what the position is at law when the policyholder extends their liability beyond this by signing certain contracts. The webinar will include exploring the consequences of the Insurance Act 2015 for failing to make a fair presentation of risk with regards to contract conditions, and how failure to guide policyholders around this matter could lead to a claim being turned down and all cover cancelled
