An area of much dispute in the law is whether an insurance policy covers a particular type of situation. This arises in both business and personal policies, both large and small. The consequences can be seen in the dispute over whether homeowners policies in Louisiana and Mississippi covered damage from Hurricane Katrina which now total many billions of dollars.
These disputes arise in many other areas including, for example, the obligation of insurers to defend suits and pay settlements or judgments; remediate environmental contamination; the subrogation obligations of an insured; and third-party or excess liability coverage.
