Insurance Law 2020 Edition

This is an essential reference tool for any Illinois attorney seeking guidance to deal with the complex issues of insurance law.

In this handbook, Illinois insurance law is analyzed and explained with great particularity, allowing a practitioner to identify and understand many key issues. Risk is inherent to everything that we do in life, and the foundation of insurance is risk distribution. Insurance has been around — in one form or another — for over 4,000 years to ameliorate risk for individuals and businesses. As societies and their trade and business developed, the concept and application of insurance and the laws regulating it became more complex.
