Insurance claims are the reason for the existence of the insurance industry. In this comprehensive work, authors Paul Michalik and Chris Boys put claims at the heart of their analysis of insurance law in New Zealand.
Insurance Claims in New Zealand is a rigorous and complete presentation of the law relating to how insurance claims are made and assessed in New Zealand. The authors examine issues arising at every level in the process — from determining the validity of the policy and resolving issues of coverage and exclusion, to assessing the quantum of the loss or damage to be paid.
Since 2015, when the first edition was published, there have been a number of developments in Insurance law: the concept of post claim good faith has developed; a number of outstanding unresolved issues have received judicial attention, including the assignment of claims rights, and the fraudulent claims rule; the issue of insurers’ liability for defective repairs has been resolved; the Earthquake Commission/Toka Tū Ake’s empowering legislation has been substantially overhauled; the Canterbury Earthquake Insurance Tribunal was established; and the Government has begun the work of meaningful insurance law reform.
