Insurance Matters Issue 1207 December 2018
We’re delighted to bring you this 12th issue of Insurance Matters—recapping some of the most significant and game-changing legislative updates from 2018. In this issue we cover:
- The long-awaited Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme—what are the trends from the first three reports released by the Office of the Australian Information Commission?
- The new Australian Financial Complaints Authority as the one-stop shop for financial disputes—how did it came about, how will it will work and what do you need to know?
- The growing trend for courts to give greater consideration to the allocation of costs—why offers and costs aren’t always best friends.
- The increasing number of damages claims accompanied by economic loss claims—and why the buck stops with the defendants to refute economic loss claims.
