Paul Carroll, Editor-in-Chief of ITL

Now that we seem to have reached a tipping point and will see far faster adoption of electric vehicles, a key question arises for insurers: Will they be safer or riskier?

In theory, they'll be safer, if only because the massive battery power will allow for a profusion of sensors and related safety devices. But we all know how theories can play out in practice. So, Cambridge Mobile Telematics took a hard look at performance to date and found that the answer is... a definite maybe. 

The factors involved are complex, and the stakes are high, so it's worth taking a look at the countervailing forces they've identified and at their analysis.

ITL FOCUS AUGUST: Workers Compensation


As tough as staffing is throughout the insurance industry, the world of workers' comp has things doubly bad -- it has to deal not only with its own staffing issues but those of its clients.
