Insurers’ new code may add insult to personal injury lawyers – The Guardian

“Personal injury lawyers and insurers are not the greatest of friends. Lawyers often see insurers as obstructive and just trying to weasel out of paying. Insurers see lawyers as equally obstructive and just trying to squeeze as much money as they can for themselves out of the compensation process.”

Farstad Supply AS v Enviroco Ltd – WLR Daily

Farstad Supply AS v Enviroco Ltd [2010] UKSC 18; [2010] WLR (D) 113

“A requirement in a charterparty for the owner to indemnify the charterer against claims resulting from loss or damage in relation to the vessel was not limited to a requirement for the owner to reimburse claims against the charterer by third parties but precluded the owner from recovering damages from the charterer in respect of the charterer’s own negligence. It followed that where it was alleged that the charterer and a third party had jointly caused damage to the vessel whilst it was berthed in Scotland and, because of the indemnity agreement, the owner sued only the third party in the Scots courts, the third party would not be able to claim a contribution under s 3(2) of the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1940 from the charterer as a ‘person who, if sued, might also have been held liable’.”
