♠ Occurrence policy
♠ Claims made policy


Occurrence policy (Commercial General Liability (CGL) Policy)

Protects you from any covered incident that “occurs” during the policy period, regardless of when a claim is filed. An occurrence policy will respond to claims that come in – even after the policy has been canceled – so long as the incident occurred during the period in which coverage was in force.


Claims made policy (Commercial General Liability (CGL) Policy)

A policy providing coverage that is triggered when a claim is made against the insured during the policy period, regardless of when the wrongful act that gave rise to the claim took place. (The one exception is when a retroactive date is applicable to a claims-made policy.


Overview of the CGL Occurrence Policy

- Coverage A—bodily injury and property damage liability
- Coverage B—personal and advertising injury liability -slander, libel, malicious prosecution
- Coverage C—medical payments - covered regardless of liability. Why? It takes long to investigate who is liable.
- Supplementary payments—coverages A and B - cover bail bonds, pre and post judgment interest


Retroactive date

A provision found in many (although not all) claims-made policies that eliminates coverage for claims produced by wrongful acts that took place prior to a specified date, even if the claim is first made during the policy period.


Particular average insurance (Ocean Marine Insurance)

Insurance just for your cargo


General average insurance

The law of general average is a legal principle of maritime law according to which all parties in a sea venture proportionally share any losses resulting from a voluntary sacrifice of part of the ship or cargo to save the whole in an emergency (for instance, when the crew throws some cargo overboard to lighten the ship in a storm).


Contingent insurance

1. Secondary insurance cover taken to protect an insured (a tenant, for example) in case the primary insurance cover taken by another party (a landlord, for example) does not respond to the loss for one reason or another.
2. Insurance policy that covers several remote risks, and is bought generally where legal remedies to a loss are slow, uncertain, or non-existent.
