Ancient laws unfairly give insurers the whip hand

There are lots of examples to choose from, where insurance companies deny legitimate claims. One concerns an elderly man whose front door was broken down and around €7,000 worth of goods stolen from his home.
The man made a claim to his insurance company - but to his astonishment, it was refused. The insurer argued that he had provided the wrong year of construction for the house on the proposal form.
Case shut. The law is with the insurer on this.
