Raman Johal on the importance of investigation and communication by insurers

Firm News

Canadian Underwriter quotes Raman Johal extensively in the article “B.C. court awards $50,000 in punitive damages after finding that insurer took too long to advise insureds of denial of coverage in fire claim“. The article references Raman’s commentary in the September 8 edition of Insurable Interest on the recent B.C. Supreme Court ruling in Sidhu v. The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance, which highlights the need for insurers to conduct claims investigations fairly and throughly, and to promptly communicate their decisions to the insured.
