Insurance lawyer not happy with new EQC model

From Morning Report, 8:47 am on 9 July 2021

Instead of dealing with EQC as well as an insurer, customers will now deal directly with their insurer for all future claims.

Advocates say it is like David vs Goliath as the commission and insurers are now acting together.

But as Anan Zaki reports, EQC is defending its new model.
