The 3 Peaks Challenge

29 April 2005
The facts

Dear subscribers

As you will know our weekly updates are offered freely as a Veitch Penny service. It is aimed particularly at insurers and local authorities but we are aware that many others have also subscribed. We have pledged that we will not charge or plague you with contacts making use of the database which we have built up from your subscriptions.

However, on this one occasion we are approaching you directly – not for ourselves but for Hospiscare. On 3rd, 4th and 5th June 2005 a team of us will be attempting to climb the three highest peaks in the UK; Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, within 24 hours. This is a unique challenge, and will certainly test our fitness levels and our ability to work as a team.

We are doing this to raise £2000 for Hospiscare, which is the firm’s Charity of the Year. If you feel that you would like to offer some small contribution please either go to the link www.justgiving.co.uk/veitchpenny or if you prefer, please send cheques made out to Hospiscare to Karen Castle at Veitch Penny.

We would like to thank the following companies for coming on board as our main sponsors. Cable Options www.cableoptions.co.uk, Francis Clark Forensic Accounting www.francisclark.co.uk and 2 Temple Gardens www.2tg.co.uk

Thank you

Mark Fowles
Partner and Head of the Insurance Department

Gosden and another v Halliwell Landau and another [2021] EWHC 159 (Comm)

This claim addressed the question, of when the date for assessment of damages in cases of negligence should be determined and shows that when appropriate the Courts will depart from the default position.

Assessing the scope of employers liability – Chell v Tarmac

These were the opening remarks of Mr Justice Martin Spencer when handing down his Judgment in the recent case of Andrew Chell v Tarmac Cement and Lime Limited [2020] EWHC 2613, the latest in a series of appeals dealing with the scope of vicarious liability.


Legal updates

Non-payment of insurance premiums during the Coronavirus pandemic

The forced closure of many businesses as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Recent reports from the Office for National Statistics state that the economy was 25% smaller in April than it was in February this year.


Legal updates

Reinstatement for property damage losses – when does it apply?

The Court of Appeal has recently considered the correct test for measuring the indemnity for property damage losses and has provided useful guidance on whether an insured needs to intend to reinstate the property to its pre-loss condition.
