Involved coordination with our Atlanta andCalifornian offices to conduct on-site inspections at third party premises, while we performed surveys at the insured’s NZ productionplants. Our conclusions led to the insured making group-wide changes in its risk management plans and resulted in speedyresolution of the claims. Estimate $1 MillionMotor Vehicle Liability / Forest & Rural Fire LiabilityIn this claim we were appointed by a motor vehicle liability insurer to investigate an incident where it was alleged that the insured’smotor vehicle had resulted in a substantial forest fire, similar to the infamous “Tucker vs NZFSC” case. The investigation wasmultidimensional and required our Engineering team, Fire Investigator and Motor teams to work with the Liability specialist to fullyunderstand the cause of the loss. Furthermore an adjuster from the closes Branch Office conducted a detailed damage survey soonafter the fire. This in depth cause and damage analysis, together with our experience with previous similar claims, assisted theinsurer and it’s legal advisers to significantly reduce the claim. Estimate $500,000Public LiabilityIn this claim, we were appointed to explore a carrier’s liability in making an incorrect delivery of chemicals to an end user. There wasno question that an incorrect delivery had been made that had caused third party damage. As a result, the carrier’s customer paidthe end user in full for the loss. However, our investigation of the contractual chain identified that there was a limitation clause in thecustomer’s terms and conditions to the end user and that its liability was limited to the cost of goods supplied. On the basis of ourfindings, our Principal successfully restricted liability to only the cost of goods supplied. Estimate $145,000. Principal paid nil.Email: claims@cl-nz.comOutside of normal business hours phone Helpline: 0800 800
