Colinvaux’s Law of Insurance provides you with comprehensive and clear guidance on insurance contract law. This key title takes a detailed look at the following areas: insurance contracts, the different parties involved, and the features of special types of insurance. Part of the Insurance Practitioners Library and now in its twelfth edition, it remains an essential reference on the subject.

This twelfth edition has been revised with new features:

  • The most recent and important UK decisions, including: Young v RSA [2019] CSOH 32 (disclosure under the Insurance Act 2015); Euro Pools v RSA [2019] EWCA Civ 808 (claims made policies); Equitas v MMI [2019] EWCA Civ 718 (utmost good faith and claims); and more.
  • The chapter on property insurance has been rewritten to take account of a series of important decisions from New Zealand on the measure of indemnity, including Sartex Quilts v Endurance [2019] EWHC 1103 (Comm).
  • Significant updates to the chapter on motor insurance in light of amendments to the Road Traffic Act 1988 with key rulings from both England and Europe, including R & S Pilling v UK Insurance [2019] UKSC 16, Cameron v Liverpool Victoria [2019] UKSC 6 and Motor Insurers Bureau v Lewis [2019] EWCA Civ 909.
  • Discussion of important cases from Australia and New Zealand, including: Delta Pty v Team Rock Anchors [2019] QCA 62 (settlement of liability claims); Onley v Catlin Syndicate [2018] FCAFC 119 (directors and officers insurance); Xu v IAG New Zealand [2019] NZSC 68 (assignment of property claims).
Other key features of the book include:
  • Provides a detailed examination of the key principles, rights, and issues of insurance contract law in the United Kingdom.
  • Covers three distinct areas: the contract, the parties involved, and special types of insurance.
  • Extensive commentary on the construction of policies explaining issues such as risk, utmost good faith, insurance interest, the premium, claims, and loss.
  • Addresses the roles of the different parties involved, including intermediaries and the regulatory structure of the industry.
  • Looks at nine special types of insurance contract: reinsurance, life and accident, property, liability, third party, motor vehicle, financial, marine, and war risks.
  • Sets out the rules governing wording and phrasing.
  • Includes a dedicated chapter on the rights of insurers.
  • Discusses the insolvency of insurance companies and relevant proceedings, as well as the protection of policyholders.
  • Analyses the most important legislation, regulation, and cases.
  • Provides an additional international dimension with analysis of significant Commonwealth decisions affecting the English courts.
  • Supplemented annually to ensure the text is always up to date.
