Insurance coverage disputes raise issues in which laws and outcomes regularly vary from state to state. Whether a claim is covered can depend a great deal on whether the case arises on one side of the street or another. It is imperative that insurance claims professionals, lawyers, brokers, risk managers, risk consultants, regulators, and judges have adequate access to comparative state-law research. General Liability Insurance Coverage is designed to give the stakeholders in the claims process ready access to the law of all 50 states on the most important liability insurance issues to quickly learn and assess state law relevant to coverage disputes.
The Second Edition addresses nearly 700 new cases covering all 50 states (most from 2010 and 2011) and adds the District of Columbia and a new chapter addressing Coverage for Pre-Tender Defense Costs.
