Frequently cited and quoted by both state and federal courts, this newly-revised three-volume set provides a detailed examination of both the nature and scope of coverage and claims procedures for both types of insurance in every state. Combining lucid theoretical analysis with helpful practical insight, the text is amply annotated with references to the statutory and case law of every state.

Volume One is devoted to the analysis of questions relating to uninsured motorist insurance coverage, including covered persons, covered vehicles, covered injuries, "hit and run" accidents, multiple coverages, and coverage limitations.

Volume Two provides a comprehensive discussion of the uninsured motorist insurance claims process, including protection and preservation of claims, settlement of tort and insurance claims, mediation and arbitration of coverage disputes, and litigation of tort and insurance claims.

Volume Three offers a detailed examination of both coverage and claims issues relating to underinsured motorist insurance, including vehicle coverage limitations, limitations of liability, protection and preservation of claims, and arbitration and settlement of tort and insurance claims.

Topics covered include:

  • Coverage in states in which there is no statutory mandate
  • The collateral effect of an arbitration decision
  • Damages for delay in settling a claim
  • Bad-faith claims against an insurer
  • Coverage of punitive damages
  • Claimant's right to "stack" coverage
  • Judicial limitations on consent-to-settle provisions
  • Limitations of insurer's subrogation rights
  • Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Insurance
