Bristol West Ins. Co. v. Wawanesa Mutual Ins. Co., No. 08-2269

By FindLaw Staff on July 01, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a dispute involving the interpretation of an insurance contract, district court judgment is reversed where the plain language of the Out of State Coverage clause in the policy makes specific reference to any accident that occurs out of state, and does not focus on the limits of the out of the state financial responsibility law, and thus the insurance policy necessarily expands the amount of liability coverage in this case since the accident occurred in New Brunswick.
