ambiguity principle

  

Definition

Insurance industry rule that if the terms of, or words in, an insurance policy do not carry a clear meaning then the meaning which goes against the insurance firm (and in favor of the insured) prevails. This is because an insurance policy is an adhesion contract the insured had no input in setting the terms of the policy.
