Case reviews

16 February 2017
We have a clear binding judgment from the Court of Appeal which provides clarity to the travel industry. This is following the suggestion that strict liability applied to all-inclusive holiday sickness claims (Hutchinson and others v First Choice [2006], Kempson & Kempson v First Choice [2007], and Antcliffe and others v Thomas Cook [2012]).
7 February 2017
The court provided guidance on the relevance of evidence, in this case surveillance evidence, in relation to the claimant’s damages claim following an accident at work.
6 February 2017
The Court of Appeal has upheld the 2015 decision of the Commercial Court in respect of an insured’s obligation to notify insurers of “any event likely to give rise to a claim”. The Court of Appeal agreed that “likely to” means more than a 50% chance, and that there was no duty of enquiry on an insured to undertake a continuing assessment of possible claims.
