Words & Phrases
Fire Insurance: Innocent Insured
Sharon Johnson Coleman
Parents could recover proceeds under fire insurance policy despite fact that their 21-year old son intentionally set fire to the family home.
Although language of insurance policy barred coverage for all insureds, it conflicted with the Illinois Standard Fire Policy, and the Standard Fire Policy allows recovery by innocent co-insureds.
