The purpose of this course is to better equip you in your professional activities as an Insurance Agent or Insurance Adjuster. Although estoppel and implied waiver are often considered interchangeable in insurance cases, there are important differences between these doctrines. The core function of estoppel is to protect the parties’ reliance interests. Thus, while waiver requires only proof of an express or implied waiver by a party of a right contained in the policy, estoppel requires the counterparty to also prove his or her reasonable and detrimental reliance on the first party’s promise or representation.
