Insurance for business: what legal issues arise?
Having insurance cover is a necessary cost for businesses, big and small. Insurance covers the risk of accidents, mistakes, fraud and many other types of mishaps. There are a whole range of different types of insurance, from fire and theft to credit and legal expenses insurance (both before the event insurance and after the event insurance).
Insurance is also a complicated area of law that many find difficult to understand. Insurance contracts often contain limitations, restrictions and excess provisions which can catch those taking out insurance unawares. Insurance contains its own lexicon, for example “subrogation”, which is when an insurance company which pays its insured client for injuries and losses then sues the party which the injured person contends caused the damages.
If your business needs advice on what you are letting yourself in for when taking out insurance, or have a dispute with your insurance company, then seek the advice of an expert barrister who can advise you.
