If you have been faithfully paying premiums and your claim is legitimate, you deserve to receive compensation from the insurance company.

Insurance contracts are often riddled with ambiguous language. As the drafters of these policies, insurance companies are in position to interpret the ambiguous language in their own favour and to deny otherwise legitimate claims. There is an imbalance of power in this type of situation.
However, the law works to correct this imbalance. Contra proferentem is a legal rule intended to govern this type of situation. When a policy or contract contains ambiguous language, and one of the parties created the language of the agreement, the law will interpret the language of the contract to favour the other party.
