Prominent insurance lawyer dies

Andrew Hooker, the founder of Shine Lawyers New Zealand, was killed in a motorcycle accident recently.

Friday, March 20th 2020, 6:51PM

Hooker was a highly respected insurance practitioner and civil litigator. He was known for his dedication to his clients and his team, as well as his passion for the law which resulted in life changing outcomes for so many of his clients.

In a career spanning more than 25 years, he demonstrated his commitment to standing up for the rights of everyday people through his tireless pursuit of justice for his clients, a statement on Shine's website says.

Hamilton-born Hooker, 55, was involved in bank fee lawsuits and a test case against the Earthquake Commission (EQC),

Shine managing director Andrea Parlane said Hooker was testing out his new bike with a friend when a "freak accident" occurred on the Old Harwood Bridge in the Northern Rivers region, Stuff reports.

New South Wales Police believed the motorcycle travelled under a closed boom gate and collided with a section of the raised bridge.
