223 So.2d 713 (1969)
This case arose out of an automobile collision.
The district court held that the trial court erred in dismissing appellant insurer as a party defendant in an action against appellant insured.
- The supreme court affirmed the district court's conclusion that the liability policy was required to be construed as a quasi-third party beneficiary contract, thereby giving the injured third-party an unquestionable right to bring a direct action against the insurance company as a party defendant.
- The court concluded that a direct cause of action inures to a third-party beneficiary against an insurer in motor vehicle liability insurance coverage cases as a product of the prevailing public policy of Florida.
The judgment of the district court was affirmed because appellant insurer was improperly dismissed as a party defendant in an action against appellant insured, where the injured third-party had an unquestionable right to bring a direct action against the insurance company as a party defendant.
