Bridget Prentice, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Justice, moved the report stage and third reading of the Third parties (Rights against Insurers) Bill. The measure - which originally started in the Lords - has now passed all its Commons stages.
Third Parties (Rights against Insurers) Bill
The purpose of the Bill is to amend existing laws governing the relationship between insurers and claimants, to make it easier and cheaper to claim compensation from insolvent defendants.
Current laws demand that claimants must establish an insolvent defendant’s liability before bringing a separate claim against their insurer. The Bill would allow claimants to sue the insolvent defendant’s insurer directly, without having to sue the wrongdoer first.
