Nowhere is the English language more important in the legal world than in insurance contracts. The policies are written in an archaic manner, using numerous terms that are specially defined in the contract. On top of that, insurers usually tack on numerous endorsements to the policy that alter the terms of the original contract. In some instances, a policyholder will even see one endorsement modify the terms of another. Finally, court opinions also play a significant role in how insurance terms in policies are to be understood.
