contract of adhesion

A contract offered intact to one party by another under circumstances requiring the second party to accept or reject the contract in total without having the opportunity to bargain over the wording. Insurance policies are contracts of adhesion and, as such, are construed strictly against the party writing them (i.e., the insurer).
