In the case of Ewing Construction Co. v. Amerisure Insurance Co. The Texas Supreme Court recently released an opinion which narrowly construes policy exclusions and prevents construction companies from using common exclusionary language as the basis for refusing to pay covered claims.
This is much needed relief for consumers and the trend needs to be extended into the area of automobile and trucking policies. It is not uncommon to see policies that have a few sentences of coverage followed by page after page of vague and contradictory exclusions which are often used as an excuse for not paying legitimate claims. Consumers have little recourse but to hire and attorney and go through the litigation process in order to get the coverage for which they paid.
