Onus of Good Faith

Onus of Good Faith

In insurance, the requirement that the insured party take necessary precautions to prevent further losses after a loss has taken place. For example, if an insured vase is chipped, the policyholder has the onus of good faith not to shatter it deliberately. The onus of good faith may reduce the amount the insurer must pay.
