Insuranceopedia Explains Implied Warranty

The basic assumption that can be made about insurance is that if the insured has paid the premiums, the insurer will provide him with coverage. Insurance policies are often packaged with intricate payment and coverage schemes (including clauses and exclusions) that might be overlooked, misinterpreted, or misunderstood. So, it is advised that due care and due diligence be performed where insurance transactions are concerned so that parties involved have sufficient understanding of the terms of the policy (the insured) and know the liabilities (the insurer).
