I write to express gratitude for the services received from the team at Thompson & Bryan in resolving recent major loss insurance claims. Both claims involved a range of complexities and challenges; your support in negotiating points of dispute and navigating potential barriers was critical to success. Further, your knowledge and experience in loss assessment…

Time to get the claims prepared and the money flowing

The Supreme Court judgment a couple of weeks ago raised many spirits, mostly justified. Some insurers have already invited claims submissions, others are waiting for the declarations that the parties to the action and the court should finalise soon. In other words, it’s time to be getting claims prepared. Quite apart from other considerations, time…

Supreme Court clarifies COVID claims based on area

The Supreme Court judgment in the FCA test case is highly favourable to policyholders. One aspect it has clarified is that where the claim is based on an occurrence of COVID-19 within a specified radius, it is enough for the insured to prove that there was at least one such occurrence in the area. In…

Supreme Court rejects all COVID appeals from insurers

This morning’s Supreme Court judgment is welcome and encouraging. Essentially, the Court rejected all insurers’ appeals from the lower court hearing and clarified many issues. The key points are: If there is at least one episode of COVID-19 within the insured radius, the “continuous cause” decision of the lower court is upheld An instruction given…

We win late payment damages

The Enterprise Act 2016 had provisions, later exported into the Insurance Act 2015, for insurers to be liable for damages resulting from late payment of a claim. Our client is a consumer with an overseas holiday home seriously damaged by an insured event. Delays on insurers’ part were egregious, to the extent that during the…

I wanted to say a big “thank you” to Thompson and Bryan for all your hard work. Being tenacious and diligent has paid off. I had forgotten that I’d taken out loss adjuster insurance. But it worked out well as I would have given up at the first hurdle if left to my own devices!…

Major and Complex Multi Occupancy Fire Loss – North London

In April 2019 a major fire took hold in a range of adjacent industrial units in Tottenham, North London.  Thompson and Bryan were appointed to deal with several claims arising from severe fire damage to a 25,000 square foot brick built former factory unit which held three different freehold property owner interests and six commercial…

More clarity needed following FCA’s COVID-19 Test Case

Last week the High Court delivered its judgment in the FCA Test Case. This has been rightly greeted as a victory for many business interruption policyholders whose COVID-19-related claims had been rejected. In adopting causation as the central pleading in its case, the FCA achieved a ruling going to the heart of quantum in persuading…

INITIAL STEPS GUIDE: Financial Ombudsman Service – COVID-19 referrals

We shall be working with the brokers on this project, which will be managed by dedicated colleagues. Necessary preliminaries Before you can make a referral to FOS, insurers must have given you a…

COVID-19: The options for policyholders eligible to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service

We have given much thought to ways in which we can help once you have a rejection letter from your insurer. There has been much publicity about possible class actions and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has announced that it will start High Court proceedings to get what it describes as legal certainty when it…
