1.Property and Casualty Insurance Concepts Simplified: The Ultimate ‘How to’ Insurance Guide for Agents, Brokers, Underwriters, and Adjusters
by Christopher J. Boggs (Author)
This book details key property and casualty concepts rarely discussed or found in print; rather they are often left to be “discovered” over time. These important concepts are now written down for all insurance practitioners to easily access. Examples of the topics and concepts found in this book include rules for reading ANY insurance policy; why losses are excluded; contractual risk transfer; legal liability theories; “COPE” details; and the proper explanation of coinsurance concepts.
Also included is a rather extensive glossary of insurance and insurance-related terms. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of insurance theories, be better prepared to explain insurance concepts to their clients, and develop a greater appreciation and understanding of the claims valuation process.
