Product details

Attorneys who specialize in insurance coverage litigation have long noted the varied approaches used in different jurisdictions to interpret and apply insurance policies. There are many similarities, yet some striking differences. Core issues on which the jurisdictions differ include:

  •The degree of deference given the "reasonable expectations" of the insured
  •How those expectations are determined
  •The circumstances in which they make affect the meaning of policy language

The result of your case may depend on which law governs.
