Despite the relative uniformity of general liability policies (and professional liability policies), states can differ widely in their interpretation and application of them. Case law can have a dramatic impact on the question whether coverage is owed. Simply put, those involved with liability claims cannot adequately assess coverage issues without knowing how case law in the relevant state may impact the decision.

“General Liability Insurance Coverage — Key Issues in Every State” (Vols. I and II) sets forth the rules that have been adopted by all 50 states, and the District of Columbia, for 20 important and commonly occurring general liability insurance coverage issues. And about half the issues are just as relevant for professional liability claims scenarios.

50 State Surveys on insurance coverage issues are inherently limited. “Key Issues” understands this and seeks to provide as much relevant information as possible to maximize its usefulness. To the extent possible, “Key Issues” sets out the aspects of cases (e.g., facts and/or policy language) that were at issue in the court’s decision. This enables the reader to compare the cases in the book, to his or her claim at hand, and come away with an understanding of how the issue may be resolved by a court.
