Abstract

Considers the Supreme Court decision in International Energy Group Ltd v Zurich Insurance Plc UK on whether the House of Lords judgment in Barker v Corus UK Ltd, on the apportionment of employers' liability for a worker's asbestos exposure, remained a valid common law rule in circumstances where the Compensation Act 2006 did not apply. Assesses whether an insurer that was on risk for only part of the exposure period was liable for the whole loss.
