The new scenario after the coronavirus requires experts in liability and insurance

March 27 , 2020 // Specialty : Liability of public bodies

Published in Economis & Jurist

The main consequences derived from the coronavirus pandemic crisis, in addition to the strictly human ones, have to do with civil liability derived from force majeure causes.

After this type of extreme situation, questions such as: do insurance have the capacity to compensate their clients after what happened? Who is responsible for the loss of assets of those affected by the coronavirus? Are services canceled due to force majeure compensable? Could compensation be claimed for consequential damages or lost profits? We say that these issues are pressing, now more than ever, because they affect thousands of users, who in turn will require legal services to resolve them.

Of course, the majority of consumers are unaware of the compensatory scope of the insurance policies that they subscribe, ignoring that they can have guarantees for all kinds of unforeseen situations. Likewise, the lawyers themselves show series of training deficiencies regarding the scope of civil liability, finding themselves unable to face a new case raised by any of their clients.

Likewise, the lawyers themselves show series of training deficiencies regarding the scope of civil liability, finding themselves unable to face a new case raised by any of their clients.

We anticipate that almost all insurance policies precisely exclude force majeure causes, being exempt from the total financial burden.

In any case, we have found a serious lack of training in our professionals, perhaps due to a lack of specialization, which leads to facing these cases with little guarantee. And now, more than ever, insurance and liability experts are required.
