Scanning the Horizon for Emerging Risks
Hosted by Gen Re
The liability risk landscape is constantly evolving, with changes in the ways economic agents interact and in the laws about who should be legally accountable for harm or damage caused to others.
More specifically, there are at least two major sources of uncertainty that influence the liability outlook and any associated insurance claims. First, there may be totally new or previously unknown perils that give rise to injury or environmental damage but which remain latent for some time; for example, scientific understanding and empirical proof about the causal links between an exposure and resulting harm may come to light only gradually. Second, developments in legal doctrines and litigation practices, shifts in societal preferences over who should bear risk, insurance policy innovations and new laws/regulations will all affect how and to what degree liability attaches as well as the level of compensation for victims.
The conference will explore selected topics that touch on one or other (or both) of these key sources of liability uncertainty.
