Insurance Coverage- Expanded
There are both Occurrence Coverage's and Claims Made Coverage's in this policy.
The General Liability Coverage afforded by this policy is limited to liability for only those claims that are made against the insured during the Membership Period or the extended reporting periods, if exercised.
This is a duty defended policy. Additionally, this policy contains provisions that reduce the limits of liability stated in the policy by costs of legal defense.
You are covered by this plan wherever you practice, as long as you are a law-abiding professional. If you fail to abide by local and state laws regarding your profession, such as licensing, registration or similar required credentials, you will not be covered.
You are not covered by this policy if you exceed the legal limit of your scope of practice, as defined by state or local regulations or board rules.
The policy that we offer is only a liability policy. This policy will not cover your property or contents in any case.
Damage to Premises- Expanded
If you rent, lease or are paying for space in a building, you can be held liable for accidents or damage even if your landlord has premises liability insurance. If you are working out of your home, you are liable for damages if someone falls down going to or coming from your house or apartment. If someone is bitten by a dog or cat while at your place of business, even if it isn't yours, you are liable. Insurance protects you in case someone is injured.
