MacGillivray on Insurance Law is the established authority on non-maritime commercial insurance and risk. For over one hundred years it has been a trusted text for providing comprehensive and clear guidance through its examination of the most recent cases and legislative developments.
It covers the general principles of UK insurance law such as misrepresentation and good faith and gives a detailed examination of loss, explaining key themes like causation and the necessity for notice. It also looks at particular classes of business with commentary on third party risks and liability policies, the rights of third parties against the insurer, the rights of two or more insurers, and the law governing double insurance.
