This authoritative book provides detailed and lucid treatment of all aspects of the law which applies to liability insurance contracts, and gives fresh insight and analysis on all major types of liability insurance cover, including: public liability insurance, contractors’ liability insurance, product liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance, directors' & officers' liability insurance, employers’ liability insurance and motor liability insurance.

Usefully organised in two parts, this book provides everything that a busy practitioner needs to hand in one core volume.

Part one explains the general principles which are common to all forms of liability insurance (for example, the formation of liability insurance contracts; premium; the identification of the insured; the interpretation of liability insurance contracts; the scope and operation of indemnity; causation; fortuity).

Part two focuses on specific issues which commonly arise in respect of each particular type of liability insurance cover (e.g. particular requirements for "loss" or "damage" or "injury", or common exclusion clauses).

This book is an invaluable guide for barristers and solicitors involved in all commercial liability issues, whether in private practice or working as in-house counsel. Insurance underwriters, claims handlers and risk managers as well as academics and students in this area of law will also find this book extremely useful.
