Market value - The price at which insured property could have been sold just prior to its loss or damage. Along with "cost new minus use deprecation," market value is but another gauge used to determine the loss settlement to which an insured is entitled. The insured may choose the gauge that produces the most favorable outcome.

Medical malpractice - Type of insurance protecting physicians, surgeons, nurses, and other medical practitioners against claims alleging failure to perform.

Misrepresentation - Act of making, issuing, circulating or causing to be issued or circulated an estimate, an illustration, a circular or a statement of any kind that does not represent the correct policy terms, dividends or share of surplus or the name or title for any policy or class of policies that does not in fact reflect its true nature.

Moral hazard - As "physical hazard" relates to susceptibility to fire or wind, the term "moral hazard" relates to susceptibility to loss through moral lapse of the owner (e.g.,” Burn the house down and collect from the insurance company before losing it in a foreclosure to the finance company.").

Morale hazard - The term "morale hazard" addresses the issue of an apathetic insured (e.g., "It's insured, let it burn.")
