Welcome to Wotton + Kearney’s GL Update – a snapshot of the key trends and emerging risks in general liability insurance in Australia.

In this edition we look at the impact of recent significant matters, including the Lacrosse cladding fire litigation conducted by our Melbourne team, the ongoing risk of concussion claims and prison authority liability claims.

We also look at some emerging trends, including GoT – the next big three long tail risks, the Disability Royal Commission, the rise in non-compliance on construction sites and significant potential from silicosis claims.We also feature a story about the need to keep pace with medical innovation, which includes links to our series of ANZIIF medicinal cannabis articles.

We will continue to bring you further updates and new developments as they arise. If you would like to discuss any of the articles in this update, or have any suggestions for future publications, please contact me or one of W+K’s General Liability partners featured on page 11.
