Poole v Chartis Insurance




[2011] EWHC 3987 (QB)

2011-07-19

It was inappropriate to determine as a preliminary issue whether an insurance company could rely on exclusion clauses in a personal accident insurance policy on assumed facts as to the deceased's state of mind at the time of a fatal car crash; to do so would inhibit the trial judge in determining whether the deceased's acts had been voluntary.
