#circusalldayeveryday #tryingsomethingnew #phibsboro #phibsborough #dublinfitfam INSURANCE REFORM NEEDED URGENTLY

Following up on a post I made last week about the spiralling cost of insurance for the studio, I was invited by the Irish Independent to talk about our experience as a studio in seeking insurance cover.

Last week, I was only able to secure 1 quote for public liability cover and it's 56 times greater than what it was 4 years ago!!! This is despite no claims having ever been made against us and working to multiple policies and standards of safe practice.

The UK market is closed off to us because of Brexit (I've checked with 10 brokers there). Technically it's possible to secure insurance from the continent but some countries have specifically legislated to block that (I had a conversation with a very helpful broker in Germany and another in Sweden), or their underwriters are unwilling to enter the Irish market.

The article doesn't list the things that are needed urgently so I'm going to put them in here:

Awards for minor injuries reduced
Garda Insurance Fraud Unit established
Commitments on premium reductions from underwriters

Now, none of these will solve the immediate problem of spiralling costs, but it'll start the journey of bringing it back to normal levels.  This is not about denying people the right to claim when a business or venue is at fault.  This is about making sure that we can stay open for business.
