“Different states of mind in the insurance world”

Tuesday, 13 July 2021
11:00 am – 12:00 pm (UK time)
    • Katie Carney, Browne Jacobson
    • Scarlett Kates, Browne Jacobson

Following the recent Scottish case of Burnett or Grant (Respondent) v International Insurance Company of Hanover Limited, Browne Jacobson will be providing training on the differences between different states of mind and similar concepts such as recklessness, carelessness, negligence, dishonesty etc., and how these apply in an insurance context.

For example, what is a careless breach of the duty of fair presentation as opposed to a reckless or deliberate breach? What are ‘reasonable’ precautions? etc.

Please join us for what will be a very interesting session breaking all of these concepts down, with an opportunity for questions and answers at the end.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about the persuasive impact of the findings from the case of Burnett or Grant (Respondent) v International Insurance Company of Hanover Limited
  2. Understand the differences and similarities between various states of mind (e.g. ‘deliberate’, ‘dishonest’ and ‘reckless’) in an insurance context
  3. Be able to distinguish between language used in the Insurance Act 2015 and CIDRA 2012
  4. Understand the differences between pre and post policy inception states of mind
  5. Develop knowledge on the application process of all of the above to an example claim
