Contact an Atlanta autoinsurance lawyer | Atlanta lawyer

Atlanta lawyers know that the issuance of automobile insurance contracts and the protection promised to the public in those contracts is considered a matter of such strong public interest that the Gen. Assembly has adopted a detailed statutory scheme governing the issuance of insurance contracts and the required provisions deemed necessary for the protection of the insured and the public. Those statutes governing insurance contracts are codified at OCGA section 33-1-1. The statutory provisions require that certain provisions be made part of the automobile insurance contract. To enforce the statutory scheme and to insure that the insurer and the public receive all the protection granted by statute a provision containing any contract of insurance issued in this state will be disregarded by the court if it is at variance with the mandatory statutory provisions. Payne v. Piedmont life Ins. Co. 120 Ga. App. 630 (1973).
