Beware the escape clause in Motor policies

Cheap motor insurance can have some tough exclusions The Policy Comparison team at LMI have highlighted some new exclusions have been introduced by some of the “Cheapy” direct insurers. Previously Motor Insurance wordings did not have an exclusion for “reckless acts” but this has now changed.  Reckless driving is often defined as a mental state in which the driver displays a wanton disregard for the rules of the road; the driver misjudges common driving procedures, often causing accidents and other damages. The legal dictionary defines reckless driving as operation of an automobile in a dangerous manner under the circumstances, including speeding (or going too fast forthe conditions, even though within the posted speed limit), driving after drinking (but not drunk), having too many passengers inthe car, cutting in and out of traffic, failing to yield to other vehicles, and other negligent acts.

Summer catastrophe bill over $500 million

Insured losses for the four catastrophes declared over summer have gone above $550 million, according to the Insurance Council of Australia. 

There was a bit of a “sharp rise in value” of losses with the Great Ocean road bushfires that hit Victoria over Christmas. Insured losses from the Victorian bushfires now stand at $110 million from 527 claims, compared with $88 million one month ago. Rob Whelan, CEO of the ICA, said that the clean-up operation in the state is well underway with at least 15 sites cleaned up so far by contractors. Insurers can only commence rebuilding once each site has been cleared of debris, including asbestos.  Also the extremely steep terrain is presenting significant challenges, but insurers are determined to rebuild homes in the shortest time possible once the design and planning approval process is completed.
