How is general average related to marine insurance?

The terms of a hull and machinery policy usually provide that the insurance covers the vessel’s proportion of general average liability. Similarly, cargo insurance usually covers cargo’s proportion of general average. Otherwise, general average and marine insurance are separate areas of commercial practice, although partial losses under both are adjusted by average adjusters.
