Insurance Coverage Disputes
is a comprehensive, chronologically organized and clearly written guide to the issues that can arise at every stage of a coverage dispute, from the initial inquiry into whether a policy exists to complex questions of law, evidence, procedure and strategy.
The authors explain in detail all aspects of litigating insurance coverage disputes, including: the varieties of policies and coverage; obligations of policyholders and insurers; and the nuts and bolts of proving or disproving coverage, from pretrial motions through settlement. Topics include: case management; venue; parties; justiciability; discovery disputes and privileged documents; insurance policy interpretation and construction; bad faith and extra-contractual claims; and the trial itself.
You'll find out about coverage for asbestos, natural disasters, environmental liability, business torts, products liability, employment practices, business interruption, toxic torts, and many other timely topics. There is also a series of ready reference charts summarizing the controlling law of each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia on a number of key liability insurance issues.
