See full video at https://youtu.be/7KtT5dvuR30  As California's Supreme Court observed in both Garvey v. State Farm Fire and Casualty Co ., 48 cal. 3d 395, 770 P.2d 704, 257 Cal. Rptr. 292 (Cal. 1989), 48 Cal.3d at p. 399, fn. 2, 257 cal. Rptr. 292, 770 pp. 2d 704 and Prudential-LMI, 51 Cal. 3d on pages 698-699, 274 cal. Rptr. 387, 798 p. 2d 1230 an insurance from the first party covers loss or damage that is insured directly ( eg life, disability, health, fire, theft and accident insurance). A third party liability policy, on the other hand, covers the insured's liability towards a third party ( eg a commercial general liability or CGL insurance, a policy for board members and officers, a business owner
In the usual first party policy The insurer promises to pay money to the insured when an event occurs, whose risk was insured.In the typical third party liability policy, the carrier assumes a contractual obligation to thoroughly investigate and defend claims or suits and pay judgments that the insured is legally required to pay as Compensation for bodily injury or damage to property caused unintentionally by insured persons.
The difference in the nature of the risks insured against under first-party policy and third-party liability policy is also reflected in the various causal analyzes that must be made to determine coverage under each type of insurance. "Property insurance … is an agreement , an agreement where the insurer agrees to reimburse the insured if the insured property suffers a covered loss. "Coverage is in turn often provided with reference to causation, such as" loss caused by "certain listed risks.
