Diamant Hotel Fire Canberra ACT Settlement Update June 2017

Over 6 years after the Diamant Hotel Fire caused over $10 million worth of damage, the matter has finally concluded in the NSW High Court. GKAIG findings were accepted by the Coronial Enquiry back in 2013 and this evidence underpinned the civil litigation. The substantial multimillion dollar settlement in favour of the insurer reflects the apportioning of responsibility to a number of parties and brings to a close one of GKAIG’s longest open court matters. During the 6 years, GKAIG has made no fewer than 5 expert submissions.
