Description

The Law of Liability Insurance addresses a specialist niche of law with comprehensive coverage of common law and statute. Liability insurance provides indemnity against loss to the insured flowing from their liability to another. Types of liability insurance discussed in this two volume work include: motor vehicle, product liability, directors' and officers', employers' liability, professional indemnity, householders' liability, home contents, occupiers' liability, aviation.

The Law of Liability Insurance is the decisive title covering the fundamental areas of insurance liability. This new edition has been substantially revised and updated. The area of insurance has changed significantly since the publication of the second edition in 2005. The authors' renowned expertise have woven these developments throughout the new edition and offer insightful analysis and vital references.

The purpose of The Law of Liability Insurance is to provide for practitioners and insurers a practical discussion of matters where controversy arises, and to provide the authorities upon which the discussion is based.
