Insurance is the principal device whereby western societies respond to events adversely affecting people through injury or property damage. People pay for ‘cover’, a contract with an insurance company , whereby the insurer agrees to indemnify people on the occurrence of such an event in return for a periodic payment called premium. This book explains the English law regulating these insurance contracts.
