Insurance 101 – Chapter 2 – Volume 1 – Other Insurance Clauses

Other Insurance Clauses

Every third party liability policy contains an “other insurance” clause that attempts to control disputes when there are two or more policies insuring the same risk. The term “other insurance” is used in a special sense in insurance contracts. It describes the situation in which two or more policies of insurance cover the same risk in the name of, or for the benefit of, the same person. Difficulties arise when the two or more policies have other insurance clauses that conflict with each other.
