Coverage of third party claims
We assist policyholders to ensure insurers meet their obligations in relation to third-party claims. We are experienced in coverage of claims arising from all forms of negligence and statutory liability, including general public liability, occupiers’ and employers’ liability, product liability and recall and environmental liability. Where necessary, we draw on the broader expertise of Stewarts’ Commercial Litigation team to act as defence counsel and pursue an indemnity against the insurer.
Our team’s recent experience includes:
- Successfully reversing an insurer’s coverage decision in relation to a historical asbestos claim brought against the successor of a defunct construction company
- Advising an educational institution on coverage of historical abuse claims
- Representing an e-scooter hire operator on coverage of third-party personal injury claims
- Advising a seafood processor and distributor on coverage of costs arising from a global recall of contaminated tinned tuna products
