  UTR Texas Realtors

Circumstance under which the insured maintains that, if an insurance policy covers at least two scheduled items of real or personal property, in the event of a loss applicable coverage should be twice the stated limit in the policy. In an effort to avoid the stacking issue, automobile policies include a stipulation that the limit of liability stated in the declarations section is the maximum amount the insurer will pay for all damages resulting from one accident, regardless of the number of insureds, claims made, vehicles, or premiums stated in the declarations section, or vehicles involved in an accident.
