The Kuwait Insurance Federation has asked the director of the College Court Clerks Department regarding the possibility of considering a specialist court to hear insurance cases.
Mr Khaled Al-Hasan, the president of the federation, said that the reason is that there has been a recent increase in the number of cases filed against insurance companies for non-payment of compensation or benefits, according to a report by Al Jarida.
The federation argue that there has been previous successful experience in this regard that was adopted by the Department of the College Court Clerks.
It also said that a specialist court would speed up the adjudication of cases, and there would be an expert during the court sessions to help with technical matters. Such a court would also serve the interests of litigants and speed up the settlement of claims.
