Recent Developments in Notifications Under 'Claims Made and Notified' Policies and Section 54 Insurance Contracts Act

Unusually, in the second half of 2021 there have already been two cases relating to notifications under ‘claims made and notified’ policies, which have looked at whether an Insured’s failure to notify facts and circumstances that have the potential to give rise to a claim can be cured by section 54 of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984.
