Written by an impressive team of specialist contributors, Insurance Dispute is 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? Updated and revised to include new chapters on marine insurance, the Financial Ombudsman Service and ATE insurance, Insurance Disputes is essential reading for anyone involved in insurance law and litigation.
