Product Description

Principles of Insurance Law has a number of features, including the following:

Each chapter is presented in a logical and progressive sequence including:
Insurance History and Fundamental Insurance Concepts;
Contract Law, Legal Theory, and the Construction of an Insurance Contract;
Government Regulation of Insurance;
The Formation, Operation, and Termination of an Insurance Contract;
The Insurable Interest Principle;
The Insurer’s Limitation of Risk: Warranties, Representations, and Concealment;
The Insured’s Defenses: Waiver, Estoppel, Election, and Contract Reformation;
Causation and the Concept of Accident;
Duties of the Policyholder and the Insurer after Loss;
Property Insurance Coverage Issues;
Automobile Insurance Coverage Issues;
Life and Health Insurance Coverage Issues;
Liability Insurance Coverage Issues;
Self-Insurance, Excess Insurance, and Reinsurance;
Bad Faith Liability and Litigation.

Each insurance law topic is presented with: (1) a short introduction, covering each particular insurance law principle; (2) an illustrative landmark or cutting edge modern case; and (3) notes, questions, and problems after each principal case, extending, amplifying, and testing each insurance law principle. Additional suggested reading sources in relevant insurance law treatises and periodicals are also included with each chapter.

The casebook discusses both traditional and current, cutting edge 21st century insurance law coverage disputes that a jurist, legislator, and insurance law practitioner will be faced with - such as the on-going World Trade Center property insurance coverage dispute.

A casebook Appendix includes sample life, homeowners, automobile, commercial property, commercial general liability, and marine insurance policies. Particularly distinctive about this book is its extensive discussion of insurance history, theory, and practice. Students with no background or familiarity with insurance will receive orientation to the discipline at the outset to better facilitate their examination of leading cases and legal doctrine. Also unique to this casebook is a comprehensive but concise review of basic contract construction principles as well as discussion of different jurisprudential views as to contract interpretation and the respective rights of parties to a contract.
