“Legacy Claims” past/present/future
One definition of the word legacy is “a situation that has developed as a result of past actions and decisions”. Add in a few other words like ‘occupational disease’, ‘long latency’ ‘short and long tail claims’ and it is not hard to see why these claims represent a major concern for both businesses and insurers.
A broad understanding of legacy claims is always helpful as the subject can quickly get dominated by insurers and solicitors.
