Retroactive date: insurance broker claim successfully settled

We assisted an insurance broker to settle a claim where, it was alleged, the broker had failed to advise his client as to the effect of a retroactive date in PI cover. Central to a large saving in settlement was our investigation that revealed that unlimited retroactive cover would not have been available or would have been unaffordable, meaning no loss was occasioned by the broker’s omission.
