Ten Fundamentals of Effective Nuclear Liability Claims Management

Third party liability claims are a sleeping giant of the risk management world. However, if your business purchases liability insurance, or has a captive, could it suddenly cope with the daunting reality of thousands of calls from distressed victims, requirements to turn compensation claims around in days, and unforeseen government intervention? In a world where the answer is often "that's what I buy insurance for", resilient claims management plans are vital to mitigating the risk and uncertainty of a major incident.

In the nuclear insurance industry, where major incidents are low frequency and high severity, the colossal scale of a potential nuclear event underscores why effective planning is paramount.

With geographical, regulatory, and political environments for each nuclear country and/or operator being unique, it is important that claims plans for each situation are bespoke — but there are key guidelines that can be followed to optimise resilient planning.
