New York courtesy of London Fischer LLP of New York
The case of Quinones v. Olmstead Properties will help insurers that issue commercial general liability policies to contractors and property owners that have construction work being performed. The defense counsel for cases involving Labor Law §§240(1), and 241(6) can help set up a defense that plaintiff was the sole proximate cause of an accident. Moreover, the case provides guidance to contractors on how to minimize exposure in cases that arise from alleged gravity related risks.
British Columbia courtesy of Dolden Wallace Folick LLP of Vancouver
Kozel v. The Personal Insurance Company has greatly expanded a court's ability to grant relief from forfeiture for an insured's pre-loss conduct, a remedy previously unavailable based on the Supreme Court of Canada's decision in Elance Steel. This could have implications for British Columbia.
Michigan courtesy of Secrest, Wardle, Lynch, Hampton, Truex and Morley, P.C. of Troy
Under the No-Fault Insurance section, the threshold to meet the "serious impairment of a body function" requirement has been revised. The updated law lowers the threshold a Plaintiff must meet in order to bring a third-party tort claim against an at-fault driver.
The Insurance Law Podcast Series examines timely and important legal issues affecting the insurance industry, from an attorney's point of view. Past topics have included regulatory compliance, sports law, negligent security and more.
