Anderson on Wisconsin Insurance Law delivers concise explanations of cases and court decisions that affect how insurance policies are written, interpreted, and applied in Wisconsin. Insurance Law has been the “go-to” resource for the insurance industry, insurance lawyers, and the courts for more than 30 years, and continues to be the current, authoritative resource for Wisconsin practitioners.
Making the complex understandable
While every decade seems to generate new forms of insurance litigation, the primary purpose of this book remains the same: to provide a tool to help foster professional understanding of insurance coverage issues. Insurance Law points you right to the most recent decisions that are critical for interpreting and applying current insurance law.
The 2017-18 supplement reflects important legal developments such as:
- 2017 Wisconsin Court of Appeals opinions addressing:
- Whether the known loss doctrine precluded coverage when there was no evidence the insured’s actions were intentional and substantially certain to cause failure
- Whether the Wisconsin Legislature intends different meanings when using similar but different terms
- The meaning of the term “accident”
- Whether psychological harm falls within the definition of bodily injury
- The importance of treating duty to defend and duty of good faith and fair dealing separately
- Best practices for disputing coverage under a reservation of rights
- Whether a policy reinstated after nonpayment was a “renewed” policy
- A 2018 Wisconsin Supreme Court opinion on whether an insured timely notified the UIM insurer about an accident
- A 2018 Wisconsin Supreme Court decision clarifying when a business-owners liability policy must provide coverage for a negligent supervision claim
- The Wisconsin Legislature lowered the interest rate under Wis. Stat. § 628.46(1)
