Details and specs


Insurance Contract Interpretation is an essential requirement for anyone, whether a judge, lawyer, broker, or adjuster who reads and interprets insurance policies. Combining the practical with the theoretical, the book provides an essential guide for navigating through a policy.

It starts with an examination of how insurance contracts are created and describe the different elements of an insurance policy. It then explains how policies should be read. Next, it considers the law of evidence in the context of interpretation disputes. Finally (and centrally) the book examines the rules and principles of interpretation adopted by Canadian courts in a multitude of decisions, organized to facilitate ease of understanding and application to new cases.

Topics in this work include:

  • The form and structure of an insurance policy
  • Insurance policy reading techniques
  • Evidence issues such as onus and standard of proof and the admissibility of evidence
  • Interpretation of an insurance policy, including the parties intent, the role of the court, circumvention of policy language, grammar, and other usage rules, errors and missing words, and more
