prevent or reduce loss without prejudice to the rights of either party.

Warranty: A statement made on an application for insurance that is warranted to be true

does not attach to the policy, but this action must not be treated as a precedent for future
similar claims.

disability, dismemberment, or death as a result of occupational hazard. The payments are a
liability of an employer. (2) Insurance agreeing to pay the Workers Compensation benefits
