This webinar explains the mother of all claim denials – ambiguity – and the difference between semantic and syntactic ambiguity, stressing the importance of two little known legal doctrines, nositur a sociis and ejusdem generis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the role and value of documenting your interpretation via authoritative support from case law, statutes, and expert opinion.
  • Learn how to apply powerful legal principles to resolve coverage ambiguities which comprise the heart of many, if not most, claim denials.
  • Discover what policy features are most often subject to ambiguity, from definitions to perils and exclusions to other policy provisions and considerations.
  • Identify at least nine (9) types of exclusions that have been found to be ambiguous.
