Insurance, 2003 cumulative supplement

Whatever your area of practice, chances are you will encounter insurance issues. We’ve got you covered with Insurance.

This two-volume book explains the fundamental issues involved in virtually all insurance cases, including interpreting policy language; an insurer’s duty to defend, settle, and pay; overlapping insurance; and actions against insurers. Insurance also focuses on specific types of insurance coverage, including automobile, marine, property, and general liability insurance.

The 2003 cumulative supplement updates Insurance, adds practice tips, statutes, and recent case law, and includes discussions on the following: When does an insurer have a duty to defend claims arising out of intentional acts? (See Abrams v. General Star Indemnity Co.); when can an agent be liable?; when does 'personal injury' insurance apply?; when is an employer’s vicarious liability insured?; how can ambiguities in an insurance policy or provision be resolved?; what qualifies as 'proof of loss'? (See Dockins v. State Farm Ins. Co.); what have the Oregon appellate courts said about an insurer’s duty to defend or settle when coverage is questionable?; when does an insured have a right to recover attorney fees in an action against an insurer?; and what damages flow from an insurer’s breach of its duty to defend?

The 2003 cumulative supplement: $95; 1996 book (2 vols.) with 2003 cumulative supplement: $225. Also available on CD-ROM. To order, call the OSB Order Desk at (503) 684-7413, or toll-free in Oregon at (800) 452-8260, ext. 413.
