Insurance is a contract between the insurer and the insured. The insurance company takes on the risk that the insured may suffer a loss. In return, the insurer will pay out if this occurs.
It is often referred to as “a contract of indemnity” because it indemnifies the insured against any loss they may suffer. This can be an inanimate object, such as a property or an item of a motor vehicle.
It can also be a person, such as an individual or group of individuals such as employees, directors or shareholders. A contract of insurance will often have exclusions and limitations on its coverage.
The contract itself does not have to have a written form, but is more likely to do so for some kinds of insurance policies than others; for example, life insurance policies are often given in writing to ensure that they are fully understood by all parties involved.
In some cases contracts are signed with lawyers and not with insurers themselves. This can make it difficult to get hold of specific information about what exactly the terms and conditions of a particular policy cover.
However, where it is possible to get hold of the actual document (which usually contains more detail than simply what is contained in its policy wording), this is normally provided by law firms.
