Lloyd's is one of the best known institutions in insurance, world-wide. Now in a fully updated second edition, the BILA award-winning Lloyd's: Law and Practice is still the preeminent practitioner guide to the unique features and complications of the Lloyd's Corporation and Market. After a brief historical account, the book provides a thorough legal description and analysis of Lloyd's. Taking into account the recent UK Insurance Act 2015, the book looks at the constitution and membership requirements of Lloyd's, UK and overseas regulation, the processes for placing and underwriting business and handling claims, chain of security, enforcement and disciplinary matters, compensation and the reconstruction and the renewal of the Lloyd's market between 1990 and 1996. This book remains an invaluable resource for any legal and non-legal practitioners that deal with Lloyds.
This new edition has been written to address the changes that the Insurance Act 2015 has brought to the practice of insurance disputes. Written by an impressive team of specialist contributors, Insurance Disputes remains the authoritative guide to litigation for both the insurer and the insured. Divided into two parts - principles of law and their practical use in individual types of insurance, it aims to identify and resolve questions such as: * How should the claimant handle a dispute? * Is the claim within the cover? * When should an insurer dispute cover? * What steps can an insurer take to deny cover?
This casebook is the product of the authors' nearly sixty collective years of teaching and practicing Insurance Law. One of the authors has over two decades of experience litigating and trying insurance coverage claims, which means the casebook is written from both academic and practice-oriented perspectives. The casebook lends itself to teaching Insurance Law as a traditional 2- or 3-credit doctrinal course or as an experiential course because it includes numerous practice-oriented exercises that can be assigned throughout the course. The casebook covers traditional Insurance Law topics such as insurance contract formation and interpretation, insurance regulation, insurable interest, bad faith insurer breaches, property insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, commercial general liability insurance, claims made liability insurance, and auto insurance. In addition, unlike some Insurance Law casebooks, this casebook includes sections on choice of law, personal and advertising liability coverage for intentional torts and intellectual property infringement claims, proofs of loss, examinations under oath, efficient proximate cause, ensuing loss clauses, anti-concurrent causation exclusions, and business interruption insurance.
This treatise explains how certain principles or doctrines such as insurable interests, designation of insurers, and risk transference apply to property, life, liability, or other types of insurance. It also addresses insurance law issues and suggests lines of analysis to consider in order to better evaluate the merits of a claim. Other subjects include conceptualization, classification, marketing, indemnity, insurability, claim processes, and settlements. Also overviews insurance regulation, government sponsorship of insurance, and resolving disputed claims.
This timely, expertly written monograph looks at the legal impact that the use of 'Big Data' will have on the provision - and substantive law - of insurance. Insurance companies are set to become some of the biggest consumers of big data which will enable them to profile prospective individual insureds at an increasingly granular level. More particularly, the book explores how: (i) insurers gain access to information relevant to assessing risk and/or the pricing of premiums; (ii) the impact which that increased information will have on substantive insurance law (and in particular duties of good faith disclosure and fair presentation of risk); and (iii) the impact that insurers' new knowledge may have on individual and group access to insurance. This raises several consequential legal questions: (i) To what extent is the use of big data analytics to profile risk compatible (at least in the EU) with the General Data Protection Regulation? (ii) Does insurers' ability to parse vast quantities of individual data about insureds invert the information asymmetry that has historically existed between insured and insurer such as to breathe life into insurers' duty of good faith disclosure? And (iii) by what means might legal challenges be brought against insurers both in relation to the use of big data and the consequences it may have on access to cover? Written by a leading expert in the field, this book will both stimulate further debate and operate as a reference text for academics and practitioners who are faced with emerging legal problems arising from the increasing opportunities that big data offers to the insurance industry.
This casebook, which has been used as the principal text in more than one hundred law schools, contains extensive material on insurance contract formation and interpretation; insurance regulation; insurable interest and liability for bad-faith breach; property, health, life, and disability insurance; commercial general liability and directors & officers liability insurance; auto insurance; and reinsurance. The casebook gives equal emphasis to personal and commercial insurance, and reprints within the relevant chapters four standard-form insurance policies. The Seventh Edition includes a new stand-alone chapter on health insurance as well as new materials addressing the American Law Institute's Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance and long-term care insurance. It also includes substantially updated materials on a range of issues, including liability insurers' duty to settle, concurrent causation, and the number of occurrences. The new edition also includes some updated standard-form insurance policies and declaration pages.
Die Autorin untersucht Inhalt, Umfang und Modifizierbarkeit der gesetzlichen Kundigungsvoraussetzungen bei der Kundigung von auf die Person eines Dritten genommenen privaten Krankenversicherungsvertragen. Typischerweise handelt es sich um die fur ein Kind oder einen Ehegatten geschlossene Krankenversicherung zur Erfullung der allgemeinen Krankenversicherungspflicht. Im Fokus der Untersuchung stehen die Auswirkungen der wegen des sozialen Regelungszwecks eingeschrankten Privatautonomie der Vertragsparteien. Unter Berucksichtigung verschiedener hoechstrichterlicher Entscheidungen wird das bestehende Regelungsgefuge auf seinen konkreten Regelungsgehalt und -umfang sowie bestehenden Reformbedarf untersucht. Die Autorin unterbreitet insofern Vorschlage zur konkreten Reformierung der Vorschriften.
This book assesses the role of the doctrine of insurable interest within modern insurance law by examining its rationales and suggesting how shortcomings could be fixed. Over the centuries, English law on insurable interest - a combination of statutes and case law - has become complex and unclear. Other jurisdictions have relaxed, or even abolished, the requirement for an insurable interest. Yet, the UK insurance industry has overwhelmingly supported the retention of the doctrine of insurable interest. This book explores whether the traditional justifications for the doctrine - the policy against wagering, the prevention of moral hazard and the doctrine's relationship with the indemnity principle - still stand up to scrutiny and argues that, far from being obsolete, they have acquired new significance in the global financial markets and following the liberalisation of gambling. It is also argued that the doctrine of insurable interest is an integral part of a system of insurance contract law rules and market practice. Rather than rejecting the doctrine, the book recommends a recalibration of insurable interest to afford better pre-contractual transparency to a proposer as to the suitability of the policy to his or her interest in the subject-matter to be insured. Providing a powerful defence for the retention of insurable interest, this book will appeal to both academics and practitioners working in the field of insurance law.
The first practitioner guide to focus on consumer insurance law and covers two recent pieces of legislation; the Insurance Act 2015 and the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations) Act 2013. This work will arm practitioners with the essential knowledge they need to carry out their jobs effectively by providing guidance not only on the law but also on the regulation and the ombudsman approaches. Each chapter of this title is structured so that the legal approach/viewpoint is given and then followed by the Ombudsmans' approach/viewpoint. This allows the user to easily find the approach/viewpoint they need on a particular topic.
