We are delighted to announce that Paul Reed QC's book on Construction All Risks Insurance has now been published.

Construction All Risks Insurance is a unique reference guide that offers a comprehensive and contextual analysis of Construction and Engineering All Risks (CAR) insurance.

Covering CAR insurance from its origins to current day practice, this new title covers the fundamentals of CAR insurance both in relation to project policies and contractors’ annual policies.

Practical advice, in-depth guidance

Paul Reed QC's book offers a wealth of practical guidance on the many aspects of CAR insurance, from arranging coverage or making claims, to facing disputes.

Offering clarity on the structure of CAR policies, you will have all the information needed to understand the various clauses including issues such as rectification, fortuity, loss and damage clauses and warranties.

The claims process close up

Construction All Risks Insurance helps you to avoid pitfalls and find solutions to potential issues that can arise within CAR claims.

It looks in detail at the claims procedure itself, providing a breakdown of the processes and potential problem areas often faced once a claim has been made by an insured against a CAR policy.

The wide range of exclusions that can apply to CAR policies and their significance are discussed, including defects and standard exclusions. It also covers problematic areas including causation and co-insurance.
