Personal Injury Claims - Where Next?

  • Thu 09 Jul 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • 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. The webinar will be of value to those involved in Motor claims, underwriting, broking or anyone wishing to widen their knowledge of a highly topical and sometimes contentious aspect of general insurance.

The Perfect Storm – how capacity is disappearing fast from the UK insurance market

  • Mon 27 Jul 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Webinar

This presentation entitled The Perfect Storm, will be exploring why capacity is draining out of the UK insurance market and why we are moving into a very hard market where niche covers will be difficult to place. John Neal CEO Lloyd’s of London has estimated Covid-19 will cost the insurance industry $203 billion nearly twice that of Katrina, making it by far the worst incident ever in the history of insurance, no wonder Oliver Bate CEO of Global giant Allianz has used the expression ‘the virus has hit insurers like a meteorite’. It is difficult to imagine a worse start to a year for the UK insurance market than 2020, and the problem is that the market was already in all sorts of trouble coming into 2020!! The presentation will be delivered by Alan Chandler who is one of the most popular presenters in the UK insurance market. Alan will explore how Solvency II, the recent stock market crash, the Ogden change, soft rating, recent floods and now Bi and Covid-19 have all combined to create the perfect storm and how rates will have to significantly increase with many high risk businesses facing the prospect of getting no alternative quotes. The webinar will allow for Q&A's at the end.
