Indemnity - Legal principle that specifies an insured should not collect more than the actual cash value of a loss but should be restored to approximately the same financial position as existed before the loss.

Inherent vice - A flaw in an item of property that will, in time, reveal itself and show the property as damaged. Property insurance does not normally cover such damage

Insurable Interest - A condition in which the person applying for insurance and the person who is to receive the policy benefit will suffer an emotional or financial loss, if any untouched event occurs. Without insurable interest, an insurance contract is invalid.

Insurance - Social device for minimizing risk of uncertainty regarding loss by spreading the risk over a large enough number of similar exposures to predict the individual chance of loss.

Insurer - Insurer is a company or organization or entity offering Insurance coverage

IBNR - Incurred but not reported during the expiring financial year.

Imputed Negligence - Case in which responsibility for damage can be transferred from the negligent party to another person, such as an employer.

Incurred Claims - Incurred claims equal the claims paid during the policy year plus the claim reserves as of the end of the policy year, minus the corresponding reserves as of the beginning of the policy year. The difference between the year end and beginning of the year claim reserves is called the increase in reserves and may be added directly to the paid claims to produce the incurred claims.

Incurred-but-not-reported (IBNR) reserves - Liability account on an insurer's balance sheet reflecting claims that are expected based upon statistical projections but which have not yet been reported to the insurer.

Indirect Loss - They are the consequential losses as a result of physical dames resulting in stoppage of business.
