Exclusions Relating to Proof of Loss

An exclusion is a provision of an insurance policy referring to hazards, perils, circumstances, or property not covered by the policy. Exclusions are usually contained in the coverage form or causes of loss form used to construct the insurance policy.

Where an insurer asserts that coverage is precluded by an exclusion, the burden is upon the insurer to establish that the exclusion is applicable. [Caledonia Community Hosp. v.
