Claims Example

Our Insured provides independent health screening and assessment services.  A 60 year old male (the claimant) suffered a heart attack during his assessment and was taken to hospital where he recovered.  The claimant subsequently commenced proceedings against our Insured seeking compensation alleging he suffered the cardiac arrest as a result of the insured’s assessment process which included some minimal exercises and exertion.  The insured denied it was negligent and caused the incident.

BIA instructed its panel lawyers to investigate and defend the claim on behalf of the insured (including obtaining expert evidence as required).  The insured maintained its original position throughout the proceedings (being supported by BIA’s panel lawyers and the expert evidence).  The proceedings progressed to a Court ordered mediation where a robust defence was adopted and maintained.  The matter ultimately resolved with the claimant agreeing to discontinue its proceedings against the insured.

Costs associated with investigation and defence of the matter were covered under the policy.
