Insurance

At KCL Law, we know insurance inside and out. We have worked with insurance companies, insurance brokers and more frequently for insureds to get results. We know how the claims process works, how assessments are made and why claims are rejected or accepted in the wide range of insurance policies.

We know most businesses just want to have the right insurance and to get on with the business they are in. The same holds true for individuals, because if they are left without cover the result can often be disastrous.

There are a range of intersecting interests in the insurance industry and KCL Law is familiar not just with the relevant legal and technical aspects of legislation and regulation governing insurance companies, but also the General Insurance Code of Practice and the role of the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) in regulating the insurance industry.

When navigating insurance for example, seeking coverage or settlement of a claim it is also critical to understand the implications of the fine print in an individual policy and to know how that fine print will be applied, as well as how it can be interpreted in the event of dispute.

We see it as our job to give direct advice whether it’s on a policy or a claim and to find and negotiate (or litigate) the best option for our clients.

We are experienced in a range of insurance-related areas, including:

  • public and products liability;
  • professional indemnity insurance;
  • property damage insurance;
  • business insurance (including business interruption claims);
  • home and contents insurance;
  • motor vehicle insurance;
  • claims against insurance brokers and agents.
  • defending claims;
  • disputing or prosecuting claims;
  • negotiating to secure coverage; and
  • policy / coverage assessment and advice.
