Principle of Contribution

The Contribution Principle in insurance refers to the concept that if a customer has multiple insurance policies covering the same risk, each insurer should contribute proportionally to the claim.

The Principle of Contribution ensures that no single insurer bears the entire financial burden of the loss. It promotes a fair distribution of liability among the different insurance companies involved. It helps prevent overcompensation and encourages a more equitable sharing of financial responsibility.
