Gerling General Insurance Co v Canary Wharf Group

Citation: EWHC 2234 LAWTEL Commercial Court

Nature of case:
This case covered the scope of a project insurance policy on buildings in Canary Wharf damaged by the collapse of a tower crane and the interpretation of the word ‘imminent’ as applied to loss or damage to the construction site. It was argued that costs incurred in the project had been incurred to prevent or minimise delay caused by ‘imminent’ damage.
