CPD Webinar: Application Fraud: the forgotten frontline battle!
The latest ABI statistics relating to insurance fraud show a rise in application fraud and the number of detected incidents far outweigh fraudulent claims. Yet, when we talk as an industry about fraud, the focus is all too often on claims and curiously application fraud is somewhat overshadowed. All insurance professionals are on the frontline in the battle against this scourge. This session will shed light on what the latest ABI statistics tell us, the duties we have in law at the application stage and how to identify and counter application fraud.

Personal Injury Claims - What Next?
We are very pleased to have arranged for Bernard to talk to us via this webinar on Zoom on the subject of Personal Injury. 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
