Legal Precedents Impacting the Insurance Industry within the Past Year:

Medical malpractice statute of limitations has been shortened from 3 to 2 years: M.C.A.§ 27-2-205. In addition, the court has certified that an insurer who does not receive timely notice according to policy's terms must demonstrate prejudice from lack of notice to avoid defense and indemnification of the insured. Atlantic Cas. Ins. Co. v. Greytak. Previously insurers were not required to prove prejudice although courts generally would hold in favor of insured unless prejudice was shown.

Many updates to statutes and cases have been made. New precedent set by C. Brewer & Co. v. Marine Indem. Ins. Co. of Am., 135 Haw. 190, 196, 347 P.3d 163, 169 (2015), holding that a CGL policy insuring company's corporate headquarters on Oahu provided coverage for the breach of a dam on Kauai under theory that dam maintenance decisions were made at the corporate head-quarters.
Products liability law was revolutionized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision in Tincher v. Omega Flex, 104 A.3d 328 (Pa. 2014).  Although Tincher changed virtually every aspect of Pennsylvania products liability law, it raised more questions than it answered, as the Supreme Court itself recognized, about what theories and defenses, trial evidence, and jury instructions will be proper going forward.
