The Lydian series: The (new) evidence law applied to the insurance sector
In matters of claims and insurance, it will often be necessary to provide evidence of facts or legal acts, with application of Belgian evidence law. This evidence law has recently been amended, with some significant innovations.
The evidence law will, in fact, play an important role in proving claims and the (non-)liability of the insured. Very often, not enough attention is paid to the great importance of this question, with adverse consequences in litigation to obtain compensation or reparation. How can you provide evidence and what are the advantages and disadvantages ? The evidence law will also play a role in proving the existence and content of your insurance contract (B2B and B2C), but also, for example, in the context of pre-contractual information duties and professional liability. In view of the ever-increasing internationalization of trade, it is also useful to discuss the international context of evidence and evidence law, applied to international insurance claims and disputes.
In this series of three webinars, the essentials of the (new) Belgian evidence law will be discussed, applied to the insurance context. As far as the international context is concerned, Lydian will also invite foreign specialized lawyers from its network to participate in the presentation.
