Claims and circumstances: continuity of coverage in English insurance law

Podcasts
30 June 2020

A look at how discontinuity of insurance coverage may arise for insurance policies written on a ‘claims made’ basis. This has particular resonance for professional persons who may believe they have seamless cover so long as they take out back-to-back yearly policies. Discontinuity problems are analysed in relation to both the ‘claims’ and ‘circumstances’ attachment mechanisms typically written into professional indemnity insurance policies. This podcast illustrates how, outside the regulatory sphere where policies are written on pro-consumer terms, there are a number of ways in which the professional may be left without cover.
