Highlight

An excess liability insurance policy is not required to cover the same risks as the underlying insurance policy and must be read on its own to determine if coverage for a claim exists.
No prohibition exists against an insurance company using an exclusion in an insurance policy to prevent an insured from arguing that there is coverage for a particular type of uncovered claim.
