Duty to Defend Compendium - eBook

New Edition! Whether an insurer has a duty to defend its insured and the extent of that duty is typically the most important question faced by a liability insurer when presented with a new claim. And the answer to that question is often multi-faceted, jurisdiction dependent, and regularly generates second and even third tier questions that also must be answered by the insurer. This compendium surveys the law and provides an analytical guide for insurance professionals to navigate through these issues under the law of every jurisdiction in the United States, Canada, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Researched and written by experts in the field, this compendium is an outstanding resource for insurers and practitioners alike. View Table of Contents
