Personal Injury Claims - Where Next? (Repeat of Previous Webinar due to technical difficulties)

  • Wed 09 Sep 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Webinar

Due to the unfortunate technical difficulties which were experienced when Bernard Thornton FCII, a Chartered Insurance Practitioner presented this webinar and at your request, Bernard has kindly agreed to present this webinar for us again. Therefore, we welcome back Bernard and welcome all members & guests to attend this lunch time webinar, via Zoom. Overview 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.

A culture in which disagreements are seen in a positive way will also encourage creativity and openness. This session will teach you how to recognise the "spark" that leads to a disagreement and then how to manage the interaction towards a positive outcome
