New Sixth Edition of The Additional Insured Book Keeps Bringing Order to a Complex Topic

Dallas, TX, August 11, 2011International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), is pleased to announce a new sixth edition of The Additional Insured Book. Written by highly regarded insurance experts, this IRMI best-seller provides key insight and practical guidance into a number of cutting-edge areas that are barely touched by most other publications.

The Additional Insured Book discusses not only the additional insured issues related to commercial general liability insurance but also property, auto, workers compensation, marine, and aircraft issues. Relying on its advice, many insurance professionals and risk managers have changed their approaches to requiring or granting additional insured status. Up to date with the latest forms, coverage analysis, and court decisions, The Additional Insured Book includes more than 300 case citations as of August 2011.

The Additional Insured Book is coauthored by Donald S. Malecki, CPCU; Pete Ligeros, J.D.; and Jack P. Gibson, CPCU, ARM, CRIS. Mr. Malecki is an insurance consultant, expert witness, and author of many books on insurance. Mr. Ligeros is an insurance and risk management consultant and expert witness. Mr. Gibson is president and CEO of IRMI.

"Unbelievably, some 20 years after the first edition of The Additional Insured Book was published, this topic remains as complex, confusing, and litigated as it was then—perhaps even more so," said Mr. Gibson. "This new edition sheds more light on the impact of ISO’s attempt to more narrowly define the coverage parameters of the standard additional insured endorsements as well as insurers’ attempts to greatly restrict coverage with their own versions of the forms. Any legal or risk professional who drafts contracts that require additional insured status or must arrange coverage to comply with such requirements will find this book invaluable."
