FAQ’s Relative to the Interpretation of all Types of Insurance Contracts, Including Variable and Fixed Annuity Insurance Contracts – Florida Insurance Litigation and Arbitration Attorney:
Florida law requires that insurance contracts are construed according to their plain meaning and, if a policy provision is clear and unambiguous, it should be enforced according to its terms. When a contract of insurance is subject to multiple interpretations, the policy language should be construed liberally in favor of the insured and strictly against the insurer as author of the contract.
If, as an insured, you make a claim which is denied by your insurance carrier, it is imperative that you contact qualified counsel to make sure that the denial is justified. This is especially ture where the policy provision is subject to multiple interpretations.
